Hall of Fame Coach to Guide Winslow Girls Basketball Team


Mahoney, Larry, Bangor Daily News (Bangor, ME)

"I had been working in the classroom but now I'll be traveling, and I'll have to be available during and after school hours," said the 33-year-old Withee, who will oversee specialists at 13 different middle schools and high schools. …
