MONTPELIER — The Otter Valley Union High School boys’ basketball team stayed hot on Friday, when the No. 5 Otters started fast and then held off host No. 4 Montpelier, 49-46, in a Division II quarterfinal.

The 15-7 Otters, winners of nine of their past 10 games, were rewarded with a berth in Monday’s semifinal at 8:15 p.m. against a familiar foe: No. 1 Fair Haven.

The 17-5 Slaters defeated OV twice this season, 63-50 in Fair Haven and 60-52 in Brandon. That second setback came on Feb. 14 and was the last time the Otters lost a game.

VERGENNES — At its meeting last Tuesday the Vergennes City Council continued to discuss with St. Paul’s Episcopal Church representatives how much of the tab the city should pick up for a Designated Downtown grant to replace the Park Street sidewalk.

Hawley, Mel copy 1.jpg

VERGENNES — It will be July 24, said Vergennes City Manager Mel Hawley.
