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.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
