CVU gymnasts take second in state event

There was no stopping the Essex High gymnastics team as it rolled to its ninth consecutive state championship Saturday at Essex High.

Where in the past few years, the Champlain Valley Union high team had given the Hornets some anxious moments, the Redhawks this time around squeezed into second place just ahead of South Burlington High, which was second seed to CVU’s third seed.

Essex was mighty, taking the first three places in all-around and first in all four disciplines, led by all-around winner Karyn Svarczkopf.

Essex compiled 145.225 points to 127.65 for the Redhawks and 126.675 for South Burlington.

Top CVU performer was senior Sarah Kinsley with an eighth on the bars.

    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.
