NEWPORT, Maine — A chilling drizzle and temperatures in the upper 30s weren’t the optimum conditions for soccer practice at Nokomis Regional High School late Monday afternoon. But senior center back Donovan Kurt seemed oblivious to the uncomfortable weather as he sped his way through ball-control drills while preparing for Tuesday’s game at Skowhegan. His energy shouldn’t come as a surprise. The 17-year-old son of Bill and Trisha Kurt of Newport is just happy to be playing 7 1/2 months after surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his brain. “I didn’t really know what my timeline was going to be at that time,” said Kurt, a three-sport athlete who also plays basketball and baseball at Nokomis as well as club soccer for Central Maine United of Waterville.
