With varying degrees of dismay, a couple of Vergennes Union High School boys’ basketball backers recently wondered why the Independent did not honor the Commodores with a Monday front-page photo after they completed their 24-0 season.
The top-seeded Mount Abraham Union High School girls’ basketball team will meet No. 3 BFA-Fairfax on Saturday in the Division II final, to be played at 3:45 p.m. in the Barre Auditorium.
