CVU track heads to South Burlington

The Champlain Valley Union High track team, fresh from a victorious season-opening home meet last Thursday, will be at South Burlington High Thursday (3:30 p.m.) for a meet to promote cancer awareness.

The Redhawks got convincing team wins from both boys and girls in a home romp over visiting North Country Union, Oxbow High and Mount Abraham Union. The boys racked up 152 points to runner-up North Country’s 40, while the girls topped out at 148 points to the second-place Falcons’ 45.

Roshi Brooklyn, a senior, led the CVU boys with victories in the 110 and 300 hurdles.

Junior Casey Silk won the 1,500-meter run and finished second to senior teammate Jared Keyes in the 800.

Senior Brian Boisijoli captured the pole vault and took second in the 400-meter run.

The girls were led by junior Haliana Burhans, with triumphs in the 100-meter dash and long jump.

Another junior, Abbey Norris, won the 200 and was second to Burhans in the 100.

Both boys and girls relay teams swept all three of their events.
