Men’s lax NCAA draw
For the first time, on Sunday the Middlebury College men’s lacrosse team lost a NESCAC championship game, 13-12 at Tufts. No doubt the Panthers are still kicking themselves for losing that 11-7 lead they held late in the third period against the 16-1 Jumbos, who were ranked No. 6 in NCAA Division III.
It seems as if Brandon’s quarrying history has been reborn with the Route 7 road work just south of town. Unlike in the 1800s, when Brandon enjoyed its heyday as a marble quarry center, the work is now being conducted with enormous excavators and front-end bucketloaders, the kind my young boys love to watch in videos. The dump trucks lined up and waiting to be loaded are size of those we see at Omya’s open house each year.
