WINDSOR — The Otter Valley Union High School girls’ basketball team closed out its regular season on Friday by eking out a 38-36 win at Windsor.

The results unofficially pegged the 8-12 Otters as the No. 13 seed for the Division II tournament. The Vermont Principals’ Association was set to release pairings on Monday morning. If that is the case, the Otters will apparently meet a familiar foe in the first round — No. 4 Fair Haven (15-5). The Slaters defeated OV twice this winter, 41-27 and 32-21.

“Ah shucks,” said the sheepish lion to the Wizard of Oz upon receiving his badge of courage, “I’m speechless.” 

While not speechless, we are certainly honored. Our OZ was the annual New England Newspaper Press Association awards convention held in Boston this past Friday and Saturday during which we took home 18 awards at the Addison Independent.
