Local high school basketball teams net victories
BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham girls’ and Otter Valley boys’ and girls’ teams all won in high school basketball play earlier this week.
Postponements struck on Wednesday. The Eagle boys’ game at Vergennes was moved to Thursday at 7:30 p.m., and the Middlebury boys’ game at St. Albans game was also called off due to the countywide snow day. No make-up date was immediately announced for that contest.

The Eagles are scheduled to host MUHS on Thursday and VUHS on Friday.
The Otter boys moved back over .500 on Tuesday by topping winless Springfield, 69-55, in Brandon. Three Otters reached double figures as the Otters improved to 7-6: Josh Letourneau scored 17, Dylan Mackie had 16, and Jack Adams had 11. The Otters host D-II’s first place team, Mount St. Joseph, on Friday.
The OV girls on Monday pulled away in the fourth quarter to post a 52-39 victory over host Proctor.
