Former Van Buren basketball star relishing second chance at UMaine

ORONO, Maine — Her shot isn’t falling like she would like it to but Parise Rossignol is having the time of her life.

The former Van Buren High School phenom and four-time Bangor Daily News All-Maine Schoolgirl Team selection, who scored 2,589 points during her remarkable high school career, has been averaging over 21 minutes of playing time per game for the University of Maine women’s basketball team in her first season back. She left the program a year ago after averaging just four minutes of playing time on two veteran-laden UMaine teams her freshman and sophomore seasons.

 But she said she found out how much she loved the game and the camaraderie that goes with it during her one-year hiatus. And during the process of obtaining her release from interim head coach Amy Vachon, Vachon asked her if she would like to return.
