Sports Round Up


The Champlain Valley Union High wrestling team is making its mark in neighboring states.

The Redhawks will be in New Hampshire Saturday for a tournament after taking care of business this past Wednesday (after the Observer’s press deadline) at Colchester High.

Last weekend, coach Gunnar Olson’s grapplers came away from the prestigious 19-team Peru, N.Y. Invitational with a sixth place finish among New York and Vermont competitors.

“We’ve asked a lot of them and they are delivering,” said Olson of the eight wrestlers he took to the event.

Grant Poston not only won his 170-pound class but was named the tournament’s Outstanding Wrestler.

Olson called the honor a “great victory for our guys and our program.”

CVU’s second triumph came from Alex Legg in the 132-pound division.

Kienan Kittredge (195 pounds) took a third and Connor Gobeille (152) notched a fourth. Troy Bergeron (182) and Jarett Legg (106) grabbed sixth place finishes.


The Champlain Valley Union-South Burlington High girls hockey Reb-Hawks continued in a challenging part of their schedule Wednesday with a road contest at 4-2 Bellows Free Academy in St. Albans, after the Observer’s press deadline.

The Redhawks will be back home at Cairns Arena Saturday for a 4:10 p.m. game against Rutland High.

The Reb-Hawks took a 4-3 record into St. Albans after being nipped 3-2 by 5-2 North Country Union Saturday at Cairns.

Molly Dunphy and Sarah Fisher fired home the goals for CVU-SB, which outshot the Falcons 24-16. Goalie Courtney Peyko had 13 stops in the Reb-Hawks’ cage.



Champlain Valley Union High track and field athletes collected three first place finishes Saturday in eight-team indoor competition at the University of Vermont.

Sierra Morton swept to victory in the girls 300-meter scamper and Emily Geske took the girls pole vault event. The Redhawks also won the 4 by 200 relay.

The girls finished fifth in team totals while the boys were sixth.
