VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School boys’ basketball team suffered a pair of losses on Monday night in the Commodores’ home opener.

Visiting Division I foe Champlain Valley hung on for a 59-49 victory over the D-II Commodores, and VUHS (1-2) also lost three-year starting point guard Jackson Alexander to what could be a serious knee injury. In the preseason, Coach Peter Quinn’s team, one of the favorites in D-II, had already learned it would play this winter without two other injured seniors projected to be key substitutes, Jesse Tynan and Josh Bushey.

Bristol voters back Holley Hall repairs

BRISTOL — Bristol voters by a margin of 133 to 75 voted on Tuesday to approve a bond of up to $750,000 to repair Holley Hall.

The 208 voters who turned out for the special vote represented a little less than 8 percent of the town’s voter checklist. While selectboard Chair Carol Wells said the turnout was disappointing, she was pleased with the outcome of the vote.

“Obviously, I’m excited that it passed,” Wells said. “Now we can move on to the next phase of finalizing the plan and trying to get the best bid possible and start securing other funds to reduce the bond.”
