Oct. 22, 2009

The odyssey of the Champlain Valley Union High cross country teams will take the runners from the hills of Jericho Center last week to the flatter lands of Swanton this weekend.

On Saturday, they will run in the Northern Vermont Athletic Council district meet at Missisquoi Valley Union High, starting at 1 p.m.

The Redhawks had a nice warm-up last Friday at Mount Mansfield Union High, where the girls scored a victory and the boys took second place.

Adrienne Devita’s first place finish in 19 minutes, 38 seconds and Summer Spillane’s third in 20:13 paced the Redhawks’ team victory by 12 points (30-42) over second place Essex High. Seven teams competed in the event.

Also in the top 10 for CVU were Aleksey Jordick in fifth and Julienne Devita in 10th.

Zak Pete scored his second win of the season in the boys competition and led his team to second place, 12 points (26-38) behind winner Mount Mansfield Union.

Pete posted a time of 16:40. Teammates Justin McKenzie took fourth and Dan Hebert finished 10th.

    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.
