Blue Wave and Messalonskee standout Sophie Holmes has signed her letter of intent, receiving a full basketball scholarship to play for Coach Jeanette Wedo at Division II Franklin Pierce.
The Ravens are coming off a 3-23 season and Sophie is expected to be a big contributor right away.
“Sophie is such a great kid and has a very high basketball IQ.” “Everyone knows that Sophie is a tremendous scorer, but over the Fall & Spring season I really challenged her to become more of a complete player by playing both ends of the court.” “She accepted the challenge and had a tremendous season” “I couldn't be happier for her and her family!” Said Blue Wave Coach Shawn Legassey
The Blue Wave Basketball Family wishes Sophie all the best in the classroom and on the court!
Letter from Sophie:
Coach Shawn & Coach Pilsbury,
I wanted to thank you for all you have done for me in a personalized letter. I am so glad you reached out to me 3 years ago!!!
My freshman year, I missed a last second shot to go into the Eastern Maine Finals. I knew then I wanted more from myself and teammates. The Blue Wave program was the answer. During my three years, I traveled all over New England and got to go to Washington, DC for Nationals. The final moments of my senior year on the basketball court was holding a gold ball. You both were with me all the way. Your effort, knowledge and commitment didn’t end that summer going into my senior year. You advised me how to reach out to potential college’s right down to the wording in my emails. It didn’t end there… school visits I had you right beside me and my parents. Always teaching the “fundamentals first” mindset in practice and games prepared me for college ball. The caring and committed relationship I had with you both prepared me for life. I am just about to sign my letter of intent for a full scholarship from Franklin Pierce and wanted to make sure I thanked you for all you have down for me and my basketball career.
As the high school basketball season has now come to a close, Blue Wave would like to take this opportunity to recognize and congratulate the following Blue Wave girls on some of their individual accomplishments this season.
Great job girls!
