Rebels return to CVU for field hockey quarterfinal

October 24th, 2013

The Division 1 tournament pairings have decreed that the 8-2-4 Champlain Valley Union High Redhawks will have a rubber match against defending champion South Burlington High, with a trip to the semifinals awaiting the victor.

The 6-5-3 Rebels will visit the ‘Hawks’ nest for the second time in two weeks Friday (at 3:45 p.m.), where they were nipped 2-1 by CVU.

South Burlington triumphed over the Redhawks 3-2 on the SBHS turf in mid-September.

CVU is coming off its second loss of the regular campaign, 2-1, to visiting Middlebury Union a week ago, Amanda Whitbeck scoring a lone, late goal for the ‘Hawks.

Coach Kate McDonald was generally pleased with the CVU season to date.

“Going in, we had lost a lot of seniors,” she said. “We have had some great games and continued to improve.”

A win Friday will mean a return to the South Burlington turf Tuesday and a match with the winner of second -seeded Hartford’s quarterfinal against either 10th seeded Colchester High or seventh seeded Burlington High.

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
