Hodgdon basketball standout sets modern-era state scoring record
Walker Oliver used an old-school approach to establish a modern state record during his most recent basketball game for the Hodgdon Hawks. In a sport now often dominated by the 3-point shot, the 6-foot-2 junior scored 64 points during a recent 95-46 victory over Washburn but made just two baskets from beyond the arc while setting the unofficial state schoolboy standard for points in a game since the 3-point line was implemented in 1987. Oliver’s total surpassed the 61 points scored by Taylor Schildroth of George Stevens Academy of Blue Hill against Lee Academy on Jan. 6, 2017.
