2014 Winter Preview: Buckfield girls’ basketball


Overview: The Bucks return a young team that hopes to continue to improve. Buckfield is just 13-76 over the past five years.

There are players that have succeeded in other sports with the soccer and softball teams, so despite the youth, there are some veteran upperclassmen that are accustomed to the varsity level and can help the team learn how to compete.

Wilkins coached at the varsity level at Livermore Falls and recently was at the middle school level. He hopes the Bucks can make some strides in rebuilding a once-proud program.
