She was only a junior, but Champlain Valley Union High’s Autumn Eastman’s record-snapping track and field performance this spring got the attention of the Gatorade people who have named her their girl’s track and field Vermont Athlete of the Year.

But not by athletic performance alone did Eastman earn the honor. Her grade A average in the classroom and volunteer work also were factors.

Along with anchoring CVU’s crack distance relay team, Eastman broke the 800-meter run record in the Division 1 state meet and her victory in the 1,500-meter run placed her in the top 65 nationally.

Eastman was also a key member of CVU’s state championship cross country team last fall.

Mount Mansfield Union High hurdler and high jumper Alec Eschholz, a sophomore, is the Gatorade boys track and field athlete of the year.

    I take frequent walks in my neighborhood and surrounding sidewalks/roads on Industrial Avenue and Rt 2-A and occasionally see what appears to be a dog-poop bag, nicely tied, but simply left there in the road or on the sidewalk. I would like to remind dog-walkers that this is not appropriate. Please carry it off.

    Thank you for meeting your legal responsibilities.
