Girls lacrosse team hopes to rebound in home opener
It was a rude beginning to the new season Saturday for the Champlain Valley Union High girls lacrosse team, when it journeyed to Bennington and ran into a 17-2 bopping by 3-0 Mount Anthony Union High.
The Redhawks returned south to Rutland High on Wednesday, hoping for a better outcome before Monday’s 4:30 p.m. home opener, when Mount Anthony comes north for the second of the home-and-home clashes.
Next Wednesday, a strong Essex High team will tangle with the Redhawks at their Hinesburg nest.
Amanda Kinneston and Lucy Halvorson knocked in the goals for CVU at Mount Anthony, while net minder Sophia Steinhoff came up with 18 saves.
A pair of Alyssas, Porter and Amos, garnered four goals each for the Patriots.
Assistant coach Beth Beldock has temporarily been at the helm of the Redhawks while head coach Julie Sloan recovers from an injury.
Sloan could be back on the sidelines by Monday’s game.
Hornets, Rebels next for CVU boys tennis team
After locking up their first victory of the season Monday, coach Frank Babbott and his Champlain Valley Union High boys tennis team will invade 1-0 Essex High Thursday and then travel to South Burlington Monday. Both matches have 3:30 p.m. starting times.
The Redhawks hiked their season mark to 1-1 this past Monday with a 6-1 road triumph over Mount Mansfield Union High.
Singles victories went to Tabor deGroot, Corey Dawson, Will Hall, Brice Guerriere and Liam Kelley, while the doubles combination of Jared Keyes and Brad Barth also triumphed.
On Friday, the Redhawks bowed 4-3 to 2-0 Rice Memorial. Singles wins went to Hall and Guerriere while Josh Huber and Evan Cohen teamed up for a doubles success.

The finals drew 25 teams and more than 400 wrestlers from around Vermont, according to Hurricanes coach Wayne Ring.
Ring said the Hurricanes had eight wrestlers advance to the finals, with five taking home state titles, as the team finished in the top 10 in Vermont.
Williston residents Riley Brown, a first grader, sixth grader Cody Huestis and second grader Dillion Schlogl all won state titles in their weight classes.
Third grade students Lucas Brown and Ty Schlogl finished fourth in their divisions, as did sixth graders Aaron Meacham and Jerett Legg.
In addition to Williston, the Hurricanes have wrestlers from Charlotte, Hinesburg, Shelburne and St. George.
