CVU hoop guys face Friday test from BFA

Its season-opening three-game losing string snapped Tuesday with a victory at Burlington High, the Champlain Valley Union High boys basketball team can look forward to Friday night’s (6:30 p.m.) home clash with 1-2 Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans.

The initial victory of the season also marked the return to action of veteran senior forward Brad Bissonette from a bout of illness. He led the scorers with 19 points, followed by twin brother Scott Bissonette with 14 as the Redhawks rolled to a 50-40 triumph over the 1-1 Seahorses.

CVU used a quick start as a recipe for victory, grabbing a 14-4 lead by the end of the first period.

Last Friday, the Redhawks fell to Vergennes Union High for the second time this season as the unbeaten (4-0) Commodores rolled into Hinesburg for a 52-44 win.

Inside operator Lucas Aube paced CVU’s offense with 13 points.

    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.
