CVU girls tennis team going for the crown again


The Champlain Valley Union High girls tennis team, the two-time defending Division 1 champions, will seek the 2014 crown in an unusual (for it) place Thursday—on the road at South Burlington High.

Third seeded this year with a 14-2 record, CVU will be looking for a third straight title after winning the last two on its home Davis Park courts.

Tuesday, the sixth-seeded 13-3 CVU boys’ team was scheduled to meet second-seeded 18-0 South Burlington in a semifinal confrontation at the Rebels’ digs. The boys semifinal was halted Tuesday by rain, to be continued Wednesday, after the Observer’s press deadline.

South Burlington held a 2-0 lead at the time of suspension.

The girls earned their trip to Rebel Land Monday with a 5-2 home semifinal victory over Burlington High.

Top player Kathy Joseph, last week’s state individual champion, scored 6-0, 6-0 wins and was joined in singles success by teammates MacKenzie Buckman, Elyse Killkelley and Isabelle Angstman.

Killkelley and Angstman last week teamed up in the doubles tournament and played their way to the championship match.

Erika Barth and Sara Erickson combined for a doubles victory against BHS.

While the Redhawks were dispatching the Seahorses, South Burlington hiked its overall record to 18-0 with a 4-3 home semifinal triumph over Rice Memorial High.

During the season, South Burlington tripped the Redhawks 5-2 and 6-1.

    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.
