Posted on September 17, 2015 |
By Addison Independent



MIDDLEBURY — National Bank of Middlebury has been awarded an “outstanding” Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) performance by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

MIDDLEBURY — The new-look Middlebury College field hockey team got off to a 2-0 start with wins on Sunday and Monday, and Coach Katharine DeLorenzo saw signs the Panthers could answer their biggest question entering the 2015 season.

Middlebury — ranked No. 4 in the early NCAA Division III poll — returns its entire starting defense and seven of its top 10 scorers, but graduated most of its starting midfield, including two all-Americans, from the team that won the NESCAC tournament for the third straight time and reached the NCAA semifinal round.

Sports column by Mattthew Dickerson: Finding water

Posted on September 17, 2015 |
By Matthew Dickerson
