Eagle coach Connie LaRose earns Hall of Fame homore

BRISTOL — The Vermont Basketball Coaches Association (VBCA) has chosen longtime Mount Abraham Union High School girls’ basketball coach Connie LaRose as a member of its Vermont Basketball Hall of Fame.
LaRose, who has won more than 300 games as a high school varsity basketball coach, will be officially inducted on March 15 in Windsor, while the VBCA gathers for its annual North-South All-Star Games.
LaRose said she knows and highly respects many of the coaches who are already in the Vermont Basketball Hall of Fame.
“It’s an honor just to be considered among these people,” she said.
LaRose credited her athletes and the other coaches at all levels of the Mount Abe program.
“I’ve had a lot of wonderful opportunities, but mostly I’ve been surrounded by great players and … great kids,” she said. “I’ve had wonderful people around me, great assistants. You don’t really do this alone.”
She also thanked her family members for their support over her many years of time-consuming effort, including her sons and daughters-in-law and especially her “No. 1 cheerleader,” her husband, Ron LaRose.
“He’s been such a terrific support,” LaRose said.
