PANTON — A half-dozen Panton residents attended the Oct. 28 Vergennes Union High School board meeting to urge school officials to seek ways to rein in VUHS spending.
Many in Panton have been upset that the town’s residential school tax rate, although it had been essentially unchanged since 2008-2009, jumped by almost 18 cents for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.
RANDOLPH — The Mount Abraham Union High School boys’ soccer team completed the most successful season in program history on Saturday in Randolph, when the top-seeded Eagles defeated No. 3 Green Mountain Valley, 1-0, for the Division II title.
In addition to winning the program’s third D-II crown — the others came in 2004 and 1982 — the Eagles also finished at 17-1, eclipsing the team’s previous record for victories by three.
MIDDLEBURY — The No. 1 Middlebury Union High School football team will play No. 2 South Burlington on Saturday for the Division I title, and a win for the Tigers would give them their first title since they upset Hartford, 3-0, in 2002.
Game time for Saturday’s final between the 10-0 Tigers and 9-1 Rebels at Rutland High School is 5 p.m.
