EAST MONTPELIER — Athletes from Middlebury, Mount Abraham and Vergennes won events at Saturday’s Division II championship meet at U-32 High School in East Montpelier.
MUHS junior Hannah Buttolph repeated as the girls’ high jump champion, clearing five feet, two inches to win by six inches. That height would have won the D-I meet by four inches.

Two relay teams also brought home gold. The Commodore four-by-100-meter boys’ squad of Sebby Crowell, Liam Hayes, Chris Castillo and Jake Dombek prevailed in 45.66.
The MUHS girls’ 4X100 squad of Kat Townsend, Megan Townsend, Gretta Groves and Chloe Kane won in 52.65.
