CVU tennis teams look for strong finish

The Champlain Valley Union High girls tennis team continued its undefeated rush to the postseason, while the once-beaten boys also ruled the day Tuesday in the first of two consecutive days of competition in the final week of the regular campaign.

Both teams were scheduled to play Rice Memorial High after press deadline on Wednesday to wrap up pre-playoff action.

The girls scored a 7-0 victory at Colchester High Tuesday. Cassie Smith, Kylie deGroot, Anna Clare Smith, Abby Stoner and Colleen McCarthy won individual matches, while the teams of Christina Parker-Molly Ziegler and Kate Farley-Catherine Akin conquered the doubles competition.

At their Davis Park home courts in Shelburne, the boys also scored a 7-0 victory over the Lakers. Singles triumphs went to David Hilderbrand, Marc Vecchio, Tabor deGroot, Jameson Voll and Liam Kelley. Doubles wins were by Will Hurd-Corey Dawson and Will Hall-Bennett Hadley.

Redhawks golfers place second in Williston

With district and state tournaments on the horizon, the Champlain Valley Union High golf team took second place Tuesday in a four-team competition at Williston Golf Club.

The Redhawks’ Jack Tomashot fired a 73 to tie for medalist honors with Mount Mansfield Union’s Colin O’Brien and Colchester High’s Geoff Lockerby.

CVU’s Andre Bedard finished one stroke back with a 74. Eric Robinson came in with an 80, followed by Billy Wilson with an 85 and Alex Socinski, who shot a 92.

Mount Mansfield won the team title with 300, followed by CVU’s 312. Third place Colchester had a 327 and fourth place Vergennes Union a 494.

    I would like to explain the charges of unlawful restraint because it sounds really awful. No we didn’t hold anyone hostage. We were simply standing in front of some VT Gas/Michel’s trucks. They were in no way restrained. When the men decided to leave, they simply backed up and took off. The police have been hired by VT Gas and they sure do have a way of turning a phrase.

    Mr. Recchia refers to this action as a “last-ditch” attempt to scuttle the pipeline. Wrong again! This was far from our last attempt to bring sanity and reason to our state officials who refuse to listen or help.

    Nate Palmer and Kari Cuneo and their families are not the only land owners who have fought this immoral taking of their land. So many folks have lost that fight for lack of time and money. It’s quite intimidating to go before the Public Service Board and their team of lawyers, to sit down at a table filled with VT Gas attorneys and not have anyone to watch your back and advise you.

    When people are up against the wall, they fight back any way they can. Peaceful protests not only express our frustration but they help bring attention to what is happening to our friends and neighbors..

    So Mr. Recchia, we are not done!
