Portland senior Grace Stacey (joined by Bulldogs varsity coach Gerry Corcoran) receives the Spirit of the Game Award at the recent Maine McDonald’s Basketball banquet in Bangor. The award goes to athletes who “embody the spirit of the game of basketball, exemplify sportsmanship, show an ability to overcome obstacles and boundaries and support and inspire their teammates and coaching staff.” Stacey was honored for her selfless act of befriending and aiding two basketball- playing sisters who came to Portland from the Republic of Congo.
