Otley, Kinneston honored


Emily Kinneston, a senior leader of the undefeated Champlain Valley Union High girls Vermont Division 1 basketball champions, has been named the state’s Girls Basketball Player of the Year by Gatorade.

Kinneston was also named Division 1 girls’ player of the year Saturday by the Vermont Basketball Coaches Association. CVU head coach Ute Otley was named the girls’ Division 1 Coach of the Year.

In the Gatorade announcement, Kinneston was cited for her all-around play (averages of 11.8 points, 5 rebounds, 3 steals and 3 assists) and academic accomplishments, such as a 3.94 grade average.

Otley, who directed the Redhawks to their second straight title this winter and a winning streak that has reached 47 straight games, guided the North Division 1 and 2 senior all-stars to a 106-56 triumph over the South at Windsor High Saturday.

Kinneston (11 points), Amanda Beatty and Kaelyn Kohlasch were Otley’s Redhawks on the winning squad.
