HARTLAND — At the Vermont Swim Association 2017 Championship meet, held at the Upper Valley Aquatic Center in Hartland on Sunday, Vergennes swimmer Will Clark climbed up on the block. It was the last heat of the eight-and-under 50-yard freestyle, and Clark’s seed time of 33.87 seconds was faster than the state record.

The starting buzzer beeped, and Clark flew into the water alongside five other boys. With a flurry of kicks and strokes, Clark pulled ahead of his competitors, touching the wall 33.75 seconds later, officially setting a new VSA record.

STOWE — The last time Vermont was host to a major professional tennis tournament was a decade ago, in 2007. It was the Fed Cup semifinals and big stars like Venus Williams, Nadia Petrova and Elena Vesnina drew crowds of 4,500 for both days of the tournament at Topnotch Resort.

Matt Dickerson: Bird watching on a trout stream

Posted on August 10, 2017 |
By Matt Dickerson



Over the past few years I’ve been reading and learning a great deal more about the interconnectedness of stream and forest: the intimate interdependencies of terrestrial ecology and aquatic ecology. The dependencies go in both directions. Aquatic life depends on terrestrial life, and vice versa. Or to turn the motto of Las Vegas on its head, what happens on shore doesn’t necessarily stay on shore.

Swimmers warming up to Middlebury pool: Town repairs are now making a difference

Posted on August 7, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Pool0097 us this.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — It’s one thing to persuade members of a summer swim team between the ages of 6 and 18 to attend 8 a.m. practices every weekday.

It’s another if the water in the pool barely reaches 70 degrees on a sunny morning, never mind if it’s rainy and cool.

For decades the swimmers and coaches of the Middlebury Swim Team faced that dilemma, even after solar panels and heating sheets that float on the water’s surface overnight were installed in 2013 at the town’s pool in the Middlebury Recreation Park.

Vermont eyeing second straight Shrine victory

CASTLETON — On Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at Castleton University Vermont will try to make it two straight wins in the annual Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl, which pits recently graduated all-star high school football players from the Green Mountain State against their New Hampshire counterparts.

In 2016 eight athletes from the Otter Valley, Middlebury and Mount Abraham/Vergennes union high school collective teams helped Vermont snap a lengthy losing streak by pounding New Hampshire, 50-2. But the Granite State still holds a 47-14-2 lead in the series.

Karl Lindholm: Spot Poles — great name, great player, great time

By Karl Lindholm

Ever hear of Spottswood Poles?

An arresting name, to be sure — and a terrific baseball player in the first half of the game’s segregated era, although hardly a household name among fans of baseball history. 

Known as the “Black Ty Cobb,” Spot Poles played on black teams in the 19-teens and ’20s, the same years that Cobb played in the white major leagues.

It measured 40 inches in length and had a total girth of 26.5 inches at its widest point, according to a Fish & Wildlife press release.
