Win puts VUHS girls’ hoop over .500
VERGENNES — The Vergennes Union High School girls’ basketball team held on for a 48-42 victory on Saturday over visiting Colchester that pushed the Commodores’ record to 5-4.
The Commodores took a nine-point lead at the break over the Lakers before settling for the six-point victory. The Division I Lakers dropped to 1-9, while the Commodores unofficially moved into eighth place in D-II.
Coach Billy Waller said he was happy with the team.
“We led 32-23 at the half and played with great energy. Colchester went to a zone in the second half and the offense bogged down a little, but overall I was very pleased with energy and effort,” Waller said in an email. “Sophie Hatch and Amber Krumrie provided great sparks at both ends of the floor.”
Morgan Lynk led VUHS with eight points, while Kate Gosliga contributed seven points and three blocked shots. Brianna VanDerWey chipped in six points and nine rebounds, while Krumrie (four points, four assists, four steals) and Hatch (five points, five, rebounds, three assists, four steals) made all-around contributions.
Jess Laquerre scored 10 points for the Lakers, and Emmakate O’Donnell added eight.
