Some 82 teams competed in 157 games in the Great Harbor House Shootout, an event that has steadily grown since its inception in 1992 when just seven teams competed.
This year marked the largest number of participants yet, with nine more teams than last year.
Teams competed in four brackets — two each for male and female players in high school and junior high school. Two MDI teams advanced to the final rounds late Sunday afternoon.
The MDI girls’ high school team beat a Presque Isle team by a comfortable margin of eight points with a score of 59-51 when the final buzzer sounded.
The MDI-A boys’ junior high school team placed second in its division. After leading at the end of the first three quarters, which displayed impressive three-point accuracy by both teams, MDI lost to a Houlton team 72-62.
Houlton players also won the junior high school girls’ bracket. In the final match-up, they breezed past a team from Dexter with a final score of 56-13.
A Hampden team won the high school boys’ bracket after defeating a Houlton team in the championship final 72-65.
