ORWELL — In early 2017 when Andy Buxton became the second generation to run Orwell’s Buxton’s Store, he said he planned to “amp up the deli and meat collection,” become a “destination craft beer and wine store,” and expand its pre-prepared food offerings.

About two-and-a-half years later Buxton has successfully checked those items off the list, and he said, exceeded the store’s financial projections by expanding catering as well.

VERGENNES — It all came down to this for the Vergennes-Mount Abraham girls’ lacrosse team in the Division II final at the University of Vermont.

The D-II championship. The undefeated season. Everything they had worked for all spring.

BURLINGTON — Five years ago, there was no Vergennes Union High School varsity baseball program, just two years after VUHS won the 2012 Division II title.

This season the Commodores went 14-6, won the Lake Division championship despite being one of the two smallest schools in the league, and steamrolled their first three D-III playoff foes by a collective score of 26-3.

But the program’s first state title since 2012 remained elusive despite the reborn program’s success this spring.

OV baesball 0X0A9852.jpg

BURLINGTON — An Otter Valley Union High School baseball team led by seven multi-year senior starters compiled an outstanding 18-win season this spring.

But on Friday night the 19th, and most important, victory slipped out of the top-seeded Otters’ grasp in the Division II final in Burlington at Centennial Field. 

There, the Otters’ Marble Valley League rival Fair Haven, the No. 3 seed, rode the stellar pitching of Aubrey Ramey, strong defense, timely hitting, and one much debated umpiring decision past OV, 3-1.
