Boys basketball returns home Saturday12/24/08

Dec. 24, 2008

After journeying deep into the Northeast Kingdom on Tuesday for a tilt at St. Johnsbury Academy, coach Scott Bliss and his Champlain Valley Union High boys basketball team will be on the familiar home court Saturday for a 12:30 p.m. meeting with Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans.

Tuesday’s game was set to be played after press deadline.

The Bobwhites entered this week with a 2-4 mark, one of the losses handed to them by the Redhawks, a 75-52 thumping in the season opener in St. Albans.

This past Friday night, CVU’s team became unwilling members of a growing club, victims of the rampaging 7-0 defending Division 1 champion Burlington High squad. The Redhawks succumbed to Burlington by a score of 71-42. In their Burlington quarters, the Seahorses bolted to a 38-22 halftime lead and seldom looked back.

The 3-2 Redhawks were paced by Ryan Poirier with 10 points, while Chris Bunbury flipped in eight.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
