The Champlain Valley Union High softball team will tangle with the Rice Memorial High Green Knights nine Thursday (4:30 p.m.) at the Hawks’ Hinesburg nest.
CVU is 1-6 in the wake of Tuesday’s 22-12 loss to visiting St. Johnsbury Academy.
The ouch of defeat came after the Redhawks snapped a five-game losing string last Friday with a 17-15 triumph over visiting South Burlington High.
Winning pitcher was Natalie Gagnon, who chipped in at the plate with a double and single. Also swinging big bats were Elizabeth Boutin and Bronwen Hopwood, with three hits each. Mikala Clark doubled and singled.
Gagnon laced a two-run single in the St. Johnsbury game.
