VUHS softball notches 4th straight win: Eagles pummel S. Burlington 13-6

ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school softball play late last week, Vergennes kept winning and Mount Abraham ended a losing streak, while Middlebury and Otter Valley came up short.
On Thursday, the Commodores made it four straight wins as Meghan Martin pitched a complete-game four-hitter, striking out five in a 6-2 victory over visiting North Country. Nikki Salley slugged a two-run homer and singled; Kayla Charron doubled, singled twice and drove in two runs; and Taylor Bresnick doubled twice and picked up an RBI to lead the VUHS offense. The Commodores improved to 6-5.
On Thursday, the Eagles snapped a four-game skid by pelting visiting South Burlington, 13-6. Rachael McCormick poked three hits, drove in four runs and scored twice, and Katelynn Ouellette also had three hits and scored twice to spark the Eagle attack. Audrey Shahan earned the complete-game pitching win as Mount Abe evened its record at 6-6 against the 3-8 Rebels.
On Thursday, host St. Albans’ pitching held the Tigers to four hits and struck out 12 in an 8-0 win. Losing pitcher Payton Buxton poked two of those hits for the 2-5 Tigers.
On Friday, visiting Brattleboro (6-6) erased several Otter leads and eventually won, 8-7, on a bases-loaded walk issued by losing pitcher Hannah Williams in the 8th inning.
Gabby Poalino helped OV turn two double plays, threw out a runner out at home, poked two hits and drove in two runs. Laura Beth Roberts had two hits and scored three times, and Amy Jones also contributed two hits for OV. Center fielder Jenna Elliot tossed out two runners trying to score, but OV dropped to 4-8 heading into a Monday home game vs. Rutland.
