Boys hoops team to entertain St. Albans (12/23/09)

Dec. 23, 2009

Off to a glittering 5-0 start to the season, the Champlain Valley Union High boys basketball team has a bunch of Bobwhites and then some Seahorses to contend with over the holiday break.

First up, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, is a visit from Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans. The BFA Bobwhites are no doubt smarting from a 93-57 licking last Thursday at Essex High, where the Hornets are 4-1.

Next Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., Coach Scott Bliss and his cagers travel to Burlington High for a crack at the Division 1 runners-up, who took a 5-0 record into this week.

Last Thursday, CVU made it two-for-two against Missisquoi Union, bopping the Thunderbirds 62-51 in their Swanton cage.

Robert Russ, who had some fine moments (14 points and 10 rebounds) in the Dec. 14 victory over Vergennes Union, fired up 23 points in the latest triumph. Jake Donnelly notched 16 and Mike Clayton chipped in 10.

    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.
