Girls lacrosse to play three games in five days

It is a busy few days for the Champlain Union High girls lacrosse team.

The 0-7 Redhawks, following Wednesday’s home contest against Burlington High, travel to Mount Anthony Union in Bennington Saturday and then return home for Monday and Wednesday fixtures against Rutland High and Mount Mansfield Union.

Rutland’s visit is a make-up of a game originally slated for April 25.

The Redhawks will no doubt be thinking defense on the bus to Bennington. Mount Anthony’s Patriots came to Mount Mansfield last Saturday and uncorked 35 shots on the Cougars’ goal in rolling to a 21-12 victory over 4-5 MMU.

Last week, CVU lost at home on Wednesday 13-6 (two goals by Liz Betz) and Saturday at Middlebury Union, 14-5.

CVU golfers win at Essex course

Andre Bedard fired a 77 Tuesday to lead the Champlain Valley Union High golf team to a victory over Rice Memorial High, Mount Abraham Union and Milton High at the Essex golf course.

Bedard also won medalist honors by two strokes over teammate Alex Socinsky and two Mount Abraham players.

Eric Robinson shot an 83 for the Redhawks, followed by Billy Wilson (89) and Jack Tomashot (90).
