CVU players on the second team are catcher Hayden Smith and first baseman Will Bernicke. Honorable mentions were garnered by outfielder-pitcher Erik Bergkvist and infielder Will Potter.
Tommy Fitzgerald of Williston, shortstop for the champion Rice Green Knights, is on the second team.

The 2014 Metro high school softball all-star team as named by the coaches has included two Champlain Valley Union High players.
Natalie Gagnon and Claire Potter were accorded honorable mentions. Gagnon was a freshman and Potter a sophomore.

    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.
