BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School senior class is holding the Monster Dash 5K and Trick-or-Trot one-mile fun run/walk on Sunday, Nov. 1. The 5K is for ages 12 and up, and the fun run is for ages 11 and under.
Registration begins at 11:30 a.m., and the race begins at 12:30 p.m., starting from behind the high school near the football field.
There will be a costume contest, so participants are encouraged to wear Halloween costumes. There will also be music, games, face painting and prizes.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College women’s soccer team picked up two recent wins to improve to 5-3-4, 3-2-3 in NESCAC play. The Panthers were set to play at St. Lawrence on Wednesday and will return to action on Saturday at Tufts.
On this past Saturday, the Panthers blanked league foe Trinity, 3-0. The Bantams dropped to 8-4, 4-3 in NESCAC play.
SOUTH DUXBURY — In first-round Division II boys’ soccer playoff action, host No. 5 Harwood ousted No. 12 Otter Valley, 4-0, on Wednesday.
The Highlanders received three goals from Philip Hekeler and improved to 8-1-3; they advanced to a Saturday quarterfinal at No. 4 Mount Abraham.
The Otters finished at 3-9-3 despite what the Harwood coach described as a “massive” effort on their part and despite 17 saves, many of them challenging, from goalie Colin Nicklaw. OV tested Highland goalie Esteban Garcia Guiance five times.
ADDISON COUNTY — In high school boys’ soccer playoff action earlier this week, Middlebury and Vergennes were eliminated on the road in first-round play.
Mount Abraham, the No. 4 seed in Division II, and Otter Valley, D-II’s No. 12 seed, played on Wednesday.
No. 4 Mt. Abe defeated 13 Lamoille, 4-1. In Duxbury, No. 5 Harwood ousted No. 12 OV, 4-0.
NEW HAVEN — The New Haven Conservation Commission, in partnership with the University of Vermont’s PLACE program, will offer an “Outdoor Naturalist” event on Saturday, Oct. 24, as part of the New Haven “Armchair Naturalist Series.” Local naturalist Craig Zondag will lead a public walk to explore mushrooms, birds and some other highlights of the Watershed Center’s public trails.
ADDISON COUNTY — As expected, the Otter Valley and Mount Abraham union high school field hockey teams each earned top-four seeds in Division II, while Middlebury’s tie at Mount Abe in its final regular season game last week gave the Tigers enough points to nab the No. 8 seed in D-I and earn a home postseason game.
Candidates running for political office can no longer claim the banner of anti-politician. Even the status as “outsider” is dubious for most. Hence it was this past Monday that Republican candidate for governor Bruce Lisman admitted to a reporter’s question that, yes, he supposed he was — since the launching of his campaign — a politician.
