The undefeated Champlain Valley Union High School girls tennis team will bring its 11-0 record to Essex High on Thursday afternoon, after bagging back-to-back wins in the beginning of the week. 

On May 14, it beat Colchester High 7-0 on its home courts and on May 13 defeated Burlington High 6-1.

The team beat Essex earlier in the season, but next week the Redhawks will face two teams they have yet to play—6-4 Mount Mansfield Union High and 6-3 St. Johnsbury High. The Redhawks were supposed to play St. Johnsbury on May 11, but the match was postponed to May 22, the last match of the regular season.

Meanwhile, the boys tennis team racked up three recent wins. On May 11, it beat St. Johnsbury High 4-3, on May 13 defeated Burlington High 4-2 and on May 14 beat Colchester High 7-0. 

On Thursday, the Redhawks are set to play strong Essex High at home, then travels to Jericho on May 20 to play Mount Mansfield, a team they have yet to face.

    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.
