The Nokomis Boy's Basketball Team made history on Saturday afternoon, March 5th, winning the school's 1st Gold Ball ever, defeating Falmouth 42-27 at the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland and setting off a celebration of joy back at the school when the team, cheerleaders and pep band arrived in Newport!

The buses were met by fireworks as they turned up the Williams Road in Newport and there were at least 10 firetrucks leading the buses from the Interstate to the School.
