Girls’ hoop: Mt. Abe is the only winner
ADDISON COUNTY — In local high school girls’ basketball play in the latter part of last week, Mount Abraham kept rolling, but Vergennes, Middlebury and Otter Valley all hit tough sledding.
On Wednesday the Eagles shut down host Milton, 41-23. Chloe Johnston (13 points) and Jalen Cook (12) paced the offense and Mount Abe dominated defensively. Cassidy Button scored 14 points for the Yellowjackets, who dropped to 6-6.
On Saturday the visiting Eagles defeated fellow Division II title contender Enosburg, 44-32, by closing the game on a 13-1 run. Cook scored a game-high 16, and Cora Funke added 10 as the Eagles improved to 12-2 and extended their lead in D-II. Sophie Burns scored nine for the 11-3 Hornets, who dropped into fifth place.
The Eagles play only one team during the rest of the regular season with a record better than .500, D-I Mount Mansfield on the road, and they defeated the Cougars, 37-19, in Bristol.
On Wednesday Mount Mansfield (9-5) topped the visiting Commodores, 48-35. Elana Philbrick scored 19 points for MMU. Felicia Poirier led VUHS with 10 points.
On Saturday another D-I foe, North Country, topped VUHS, 54-41. Mckenna Marsh led the 8-6 Falcons with 14 points, a total matched by the Commodores’ Kate Gosliga.
The 6-7 Commodores will look to get back to .500 at MUHS on Tuesday.
On Wednesday MUHS scored a season-high 34 points, but host Missisquoi (5-9) put up 54 points to win by 19. Macayla Langlois led MVU with 16 points.
Ivy Doran (10 points) and Taylor Sylvester (nine) paced the Tigers.
On Saturday the Tigers set a season-high for offensive output for the second straight game, but host Winooski outscored them, 53-37. Kiara Mack led the 4-11 Spartans with 17 points and 11 rebounds.
Ashley Sunderland (12 points) and Carly Levesque (10) hit double figures for the Tigers, who will look to break into the win column on Tuesday vs. VUHS.
On Thursday visiting Fair Haven coasted past the Otters, 68-34, as sophomore Ryleigh Coloutti tossed in 23 points for the Slaters. Fair Haven improved to 10-3 and, coupled with Enosburg’s loss to Mount Abe, moved into fourth place in D-II.
