ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school basketball action earlier this week, the Mount Abraham boys and girls and the Otter Valley girls all picked up victories.
The Vergennes girls hosted Middlebury on Tuesday; see story by clicking here. Other games scheduled for Wednesday were postponed after school was closed due to the ice and snow..
On Tuesday the Eagle girls picked up their fifth straight win by defeating Division I host Colchester, 54-40. The 6-2 defending D-II champion Eagles have moved into third place in the D-II standings. Against the 1-6 Lakers they used a 15-8 edge to open the second half to take charge. Jalen Cook put in a game-high 16 points for the Eagles.
Mount Abe will host the 3-3 Commodores on Friday at 7 p.m.
On Tuesday Alia Edmunds recorded 19 points and 11 rebounds to help spark the Otter girls past visiting Woodstock 64-36. It was Edmunds’ second straight double-double. OV’s pressure defense also harassed the 3-5 Wasps into turnovers the Otters turned into easy baskets in a balanced scoring effort. The 4-4 Otters will tackle Mount Anthony on the road on Friday.
On Monday the Eagle boys coasted past winless visitor Winooski for the second time this winter, this time by 72-26. Mount Abe took charge with a 19-4 advantage in the first period. Parker Hines (17 points) and Liam Kelliher (10) led the offense for the Eagles, who improved to 4-3. Saladi Mayange scored seven for the Spartans.
The Eagles kick off a tough stretch with a visit to OV on Saturday. They will look to avenge an earlier defeat when they host Randolph on Monday, and also play at D-I St. Albans next week.
