Pre-season scrimmages set for some CVU teams

August 22, 2013

With the opening of the fall high school sports season just around the corner, several Champlain Valley Union High teams have scrimmage games coming up, two of them Thursday.

The defending Division 1 champion girls soccer team will have a home session with Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans at 4 p.m. under the direction of new head coach Stan Williams, who replaces the retired Brad Parker.

The defending champion boys of head coach T.J. Mead will be at Montpelier High Thursday afternoon for a practice game.

On Friday, Mead and boys will travel to Windridge Camp in Roxbury for a couple of days of practice and bonding.

“This is for training and team activities,” said Mead. He added that there is (gulp) no cell phone service or Internet at the camp. Most team members did not see that as a big downer.

The soccer girls will be on the road Saturday at Hanover, N.H.

Saturday morning, coach Jim Provost’s Redhawk football team will test Mount Mansfield Union in a home scrimmage starting at 10 a.m. The team’s new uniforms will be unveiled when the Hawks take to the field.

Provost said last weekend’s annual Red and White scrimmage went well and the team came away in good health.
