The youthful Champlain Valley Union High field hockey team has earned fourth seed in the Vermont Principals Association playoff lineup and will play host to fifth-seeded Rutland High on Saturday morning at 11.
Last Friday’s 2-0 home victory over Mount Abraham Union earned the Redhawks a 7-4-3 regular season mark. Rutland, from out of the south, comes with an 8-5-1 record for its initial meeting of the year with CVU.
Swift forwards Mollie Burke and Sarah Reed had the goals in the Redhawks’ victory over the Eagles, with Louise Gibbs getting an assist.
Goalkeeper Sami Kassel had a trio of stops in the CVU cage.
It was the final regular season home contest for senior tri-captains Gibbs, Mallory Hillman and Aubrey Deavitt, along with Kassel, Holly Bertolet, Kelsey Barrett and Madison Wetmiller.
