BRANDON — It’s way too early to say the defending Division II champion Otter Valley baseball team has picked right up where the Otters left off from 2013’s 17-1 campaign.
But at least so far, so good, despite the program’s significant losses to graduation.
On Monday, the Otters jumped on visiting Windsor early on the way to a 10-2 win, one that coupled with their 6-1 Friday win at Bellows Falls gave them to 2-0 start to their season.
The big news in the basketball world last week was that 7’0” Kansas freshman center Joel Embiid (“jo-el em-beed”) will leave college and enter the NBA draft in June.
ST. ALBANS — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ lacrosse team powered past host BFA-St. Albans on Monday, 17-7, to improve to 3-0. All of the Tigers’ wins have been by 10 goals or more.
Sam Usilton led the MUHS attack with five goals and an assist, while Bobby Ritter and Connor Quinn chipped in two goals and two assists apiece. Keenan Bartlett and Nathan Hermann added two goals each for the Tigers. BFA goalie Issac Ryea made 20 saves.
In light of the May 13 re-vote of Article 6, now Article 1, I encourage Middlebury residents to vote “no.”
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College women’s lacrosse team dropped a pair of tight home games late last week to other teams also ranked in the top 10 in NCAA Division III before bouncing back to win a non-league game on Tuesday.
The Panthers, ranked No. 7 in NCAA Division III, dropped to 10-3, 6-2 in NESCAC play. Their three losses have come by a total of four goals. They are in fourth place in a tight NESCAC race with two league games to play and will host Colby at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
It’s one thing to launch a national political movement. It’s another and much larger challenge to see it gain momentum.
Remember Beyond War? Remember the Million Man March? Me neither.
So the growing success of the national movement for fossil fuel divestment is all the more impressive. Launched just a couple years ago by 350.org (which itself originated on the Middlebury College campus), the divestment campaign has proven it has staying power.
This is in response to the April 4 letter by Mr. Grinnell to our Addison County Regional Planning Commission.
Need to hear the truth?
New York wants to be heard. Well, maybe they should listen to some of the bunk we’ve been fed by Vermont Gas.
The Ticonderoga town supervisor should know that Vermont Gas said it isn’t going any further than the mill.
