The Tigers’ only loss has come to a 4-1 Rutland team in their opener, and in that 10-8 road setback MUHS played without senior standout midfielders Chrissy Ritter and Brandi Whittemore.

VERGENNES — At their April 10 meeting, Vergennes aldermen told homeowners affected by water problems in the Crosby Farms and Booska Court areas that the city had hired Middlebury’s Otter Creek Engineering to evaluate what needed to be done to cure drainage woes in the subdivision.
