After two wins, the Champlain Valley Union High baseball team is headed to Mount Mansfield Union High’s field on Thursday with a 4-1 record.
“Our pitching staff is keeping us in games,” Coach Tim Albertson wrote in an email to the Observer. “We continue to capitalize when teams make mistakes. The best part about this team is they are selfless. We are getting production from the entire lineup.”
