BRANDON — Neither rain nor wind nor mud nor the No. 3 seed Otter Valley Union High School field hockey team could slow visiting No. 6 Mount Abraham on Thursday, when the Eagles scored early and used dominating defense all over the field to defeat the Otters, 1-0, in a Division II quarterfinal.

Mount Abe improved to 5-6-4 — and 5-0-1 against D-II competition — after surviving another fall in the almost exclusively D-I Metro Conference.

VERGENNES — About a year ago the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Vergennes was putting the finishing touches on a roughly $100,000 renovation of its School Street headquarters and had just hired longtime local afterschool program head Jill Strube as its new executive director.

It hoped to attract more young members who otherwise might have nothing better to do after school.

As the 2016-2017 school year began daily club attendance ran between 15 and 18 5th-through-12-graders, and the club’s total membership stood at 75.

BRANDON — Although Coach Stacey Edmunds-Brickell said her Otter Valley Union High School field hockey team did not play its best on Saturday, the Otters rallied late for a 3-3 tie against visiting Windsor, at 8-3-1 Division III’s top team.

Edmunds-Brickell said she expects the Otters — who earlier dealt Windsor two of its three losses — to compete well in the postseason.
