The Maine Sports Hall of Fame will induct ten in ceremonies at the Merrill Auditorium on October 29. “I am very proud of our diversity in terms of geography and the variety of sports represented,” said Board Chairman Brian Corcoran. “It’s intriguing to learn the stories of those who are the best of the best in Maine athletics.”
Among the 10 new inductees is Winslow’s Mike Siviski, who has won 287 games as a coach at his alma mater Winslow High School. He was a three-sport athlete at Winslow before heading to the University of Maine at Orono, where he played football. He became an assistant football coach at Thornton Academy for 16 years before succeeding Harold “Tank” Violette as the head coach at Winslow in 1985. Over the next 35 seasons, he would lead his teams to eleven regional and seven state titles. Three times the Black Raiders won back-to-back championships.
