Locals excel in Twin State all-star games

ADDISON COUNTY — A number of recent graduates from local high schools helped Vermont post solid results this past weekend against New Hampshire in annual Twin State senior all-state games. 
On Friday, June 21, three Mount Abraham athletes helped Vermont defeat New Hampshire, 3-0, in the Twin-State field hockey game at St. Anselm College in Manchester. 
Evan Laurent and Casondra Dykstra helped Vermont control midfield play and not allow New Hampshire to put a shot on either of two Green Mountain goalies, one of whom was their teammate Chessley Jackman. 
On Saturday the 22nd the Twin-State girls’ and boys’ lacrosse and baseball games were played. 
The girls’ lacrosse game tilted New Hampshire’s way, 23-8. Middlebury’s Emily Laframboise, an attacker, scored one of the Vermont goals, and midfielders Lacey Greenamyre and Ada Anderson also took the field for Vermont in Lebanon, N.H.

The boys’ lacrosse game went the other direction — Vermont rolled to a 21-5 victory. Otter Valley goalie Alex Stevens played half the game and stopped six New Hampshire shots, and OV’s Hayden Gallo netted one of the goals for the winning side. 
Vermont and New Hampshire split a baseball doubleheader played in White River Junction. 
In the opener, New Hampshire prevailed, 4-1, and Vermont rolled to an 11-3 win in the nightcap. 
OV’s Josh Beayon earned Vermont MVP honors after tossing three scoreless innings and striking out five in the second game; he retired nine straight batters to earn the win as Vermont rallied from an early 3-1 deficit. In the opening game he also doubled and singled.  
Middlebury’s Wyatt Cameron also made an impact, singling home the only Vermont run in the opener and then rapping a two-run single to spark a four-run third as Vermont took the lead in the nightcap.
