McAuley High in Portland will hold a memorial service to honor and remember Wil Smith at 1 p.m. March 15 at the school auditorium.

Smith died Feb. 22 at the age of 46 after a three-year battle with colon cancer. He was the girls’ basketball coach at McAuley for four years, leading the Lions to a 54-26 record and a Western Class A title. He also worked as the associate dean of multicultural student programs at Bowdoin College, where he had played basketball.

Smith was most recently the dean of community and multicultural affairs, and the girls’ basketball coach at the Berkshire School in Sheffield, Massachusetts.

The service will be open to everyone. For more information, call 797-3802.

Holmes was 11 shots worse on Friday than his record-tying 62 in the first round, but still led Ryan Moore by two at the Cadillac Championship in Doral, Florida.

McIlroy was one club lighter than the start of his round. Frustrated by hitting a ball into the water on the eighth hole, he slung the club in after it. He wound up with a 70 and was eight shots back.
