CVU basketball girls start off on high note


The 1-0 Champlain Valley Union High girls basketball team was in Barre Wednesday night, hoping to get a start on a repeat of last year’s double victories in the two-day tournament, with Spaulding High the host.

The second and concluding evening is Friday.

Coach Ute Otley’s Redhawks got the new season off to a swisheroo of a start Friday at Bremner Gymnasium with a 50-31 decision over visiting South Burlington High.

Despite the loss of several key performers from last season’s

Division 1 finalists, the youthful Redhawks showed exceptional balance in putting away the Rebels.

Junior Emily Kinneston led the scorers with nine points, while freshman Sadie Otley, in her varsity debut, became the leading helper with seven assists. Junior Amanda Lougee popped for eight points, as did Laurel Jaunich, another freshman. Lougee worked inside to haul down seven rebounds.

CVU has road games at Mount Mansfield Union on Dec. 28 and South

Burlington High on Jan. 3 before the next home game Jan. 7 against Mount Mansfield.

    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.
