BANGOR, Maine — The Husson University men’s basketball program continues to mine its recruiting base in Florida as it expands the roster for the 2018-2019 season.

Trey Sibert, a 6-foot-5 post player from Tampa Prep, has committed to join the Eagles program starting later this summer. Sibert joins forward Ian McIntyre of Hampden as a part of the 2018 recruiting class.

As a senior under coach Joe Fenlon, Sibert averaged 11 points, seven rebounds and two blocked shots while serving as captain and helping the Terrapins post a 18-12 record. The four-year varsity player, a three-year starter, finished his career with 932 points, 654 rebounds and 142 blocks for a team that averaged 19 victories per season and won two district championships.

Sibert was twice selected for All-County recognition and chosen to compete in the Senior City All-Star game, where he was a finalist in the dunk contest. He ranks third on the all-time rebounding list at Tampa Prep behind Casey Sanders, a McDonald’s All-American who played at Duke, and Juwan Durham, a sophomore playing at Notre Dame.

Sibert played Amateur Athletic Union basketball for coach John Arroyo and Skills Center Elite basketball.

“Trey is a very good piece for us to add. His ability to rebound and defend the rim will fit nicely with the nucleolus we have coming back,” Husson head coach Warren Caruso said. “Trey has played a high level of high school basketball, and we look forward to seeing the impact he has on our program over his career.”

The Eagles posted a 19-7 record last season and earned a share of the North Atlantic Conference regular-season title. Husson, which had advanced to the NCAA Division III tournament the previous two seasons, had its five-year streak of 20-win seasons snapped.

Saint Joseph’s adding skiing

STANDISH, Maine – Saint Joseph’s College Director of Athletics Brian Curtin has announced that the institution will add men’s and women’s alpine skiing as its newest varsity sports.

A national search to fill the program’s full-time head coaching position will begin immediately with the selected individual to be named later this summer. The head coach will oversee a club team this winter while recruiting throughout the academic year in preparation of fielding competitive varsity squads during the 2019-2020 season.

The addition of Alpine skiing marks the first time since the 2012-13 academic year that the college has added new varsity sports.

“We continually strive to find opportunities that advance our athletics department and this is certainly one of the more exciting ways,” Curtin said in a release. “After extensive research and the support of President (James) Dlugos, we felt strongly that adding men’s and women’s Alpine Ski makes a lot of sense and fits in so well with our goals and our surrounding resources.”

The Monks’ home training course will be Shawnee Peak in Bridgton, which features over 40 trail and at 80 years is the longest operating ski resort in Maine.

The addition of the alpine skiing programs will bring the total number of athletic teams at Saint Joseph’s to 21 (10 men, 11 women).
