Greg Marter tapped as Southern Aroostook basketball coach

Greg Marter is the new boys varsity basketball coach at Southern Aroostook Community School in Dyer Brook.

Marter replaces Bill McAvoy, who resigned after last season in anticipation of having back surgery. McAvoy, who was inducted into the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame on Sunday, coached the Warriors for the last six years.

“Billy McAvoy has been a good friend and mentor for a number of years, so I knew the opportunity was there to be able to take over a good program with him getting done,” Marter said.

Marter, a Millinocket resident, has been busy as a basketball and football coach in the region for more than a decade.

He was the junior varsity boys basketball coach at Penobscot Valley High School in Howland from 2005 through 2009 before moving to Stearns High School in Millinocket, where Marter spent one year as the boys JV coach before ascending to the varsity post for six years beginning with the 2010-11 season.
