VERGENNES — In 2007, the Vergennes Union High School baseball team defeated both Otter Valley and Mount Abraham on the way to the Division II title.

This spring, the Commodores are hoping history will repeat itself.

In a Friday quarterfinal, No. 2 VUHS hung on for a 3-2 win over the No. 10 Eagles that ended when Mount Abe stranded the go-ahead runs in scoring position.

VERGENNES — Late one recent morning, Vergennes Union High School junior Ashley Stearns burst into Judy Wiger’s science classroom.

“I’m mad at you,” Stearns told Wiger. “I’m mad at you because you’re leaving.”

The two hugged, but Wiger told Stearns she couldn’t talk to her right then: Wiger had scheduled an interview to talk with a newspaper reporter about her retirement this month after three decades at VUHS.

ESSEX — Athletes from the Mount Abraham, MUHS and VUHS teams competed in the major Essex Invitational Track and Field Meet on Saturday, an event that draws athletes from all divisions from around the state.

Several athletes posted top-10 results while achieving that goal, notably VUHS junior Jon Welch, who was second and sixth in two boys’ hurdling events.

VERGENNES — Vergennes aldermen at their May 22 meeting began their work on the 2012-2013 city budget by agreeing with City Manager Mel Hawley’s recommendations for fire and sewer department spending, Mayor Michael Daniels said the next day.

Daniels said aldermen moved quickly on Hawley’s $123,100 Vergennes Fire Department proposal because it will allow city officials to mail out contracts promptly to the other towns that share that cost with the city: Ferrisburgh, Panton and Waltham.

MIDDLEBURY — Despite plenty of effort in Thursday’s home game vs. traditional rival Woodstock, the Middlebury Union High School boys’ lacrosse team came up just short, 7-6.

The 10-4 Wasps scored the only two goals of the fourth quarter to erase an MUHS lead, while the Tigers committed a few too many mistakes and Wasp goalie Ben Orr made three of his seven saves.

BRISTOL — The Vergennes Union High School baseball team rallied to tie host Mount Abraham in the seventh and plated the winning run in the eighth on Thursday to defeat the Eagles, 4-3, in a back-and-forth game.

The winning rally started with a leadoff single by Nick Richer off losing pitcher Tommy Nelson, Richer’s second safety of the afternoon. Zach Ouellette sacrificed pinch-runner Austin Burnett to second base, and Burnett slid home safely — barely — on Justus Sturtevant’s second hit of the game, a soft single to right field.
