CVU softball seeks first win Thursday

When Spaulding High of Barre comes to Champlain Valley Union High on Thursday (4 p.m.) for a softball confrontation, one team will emerge with its initial victory of the campaign.

The Crimson Tide is 0-4 following a 6-2 defeat Tuesday at Colchester High.

CVU, 0-3, had its scheduled Tuesday contest at Middlebury postponed.

Coach Sara Armstrong Donegan’s youthful Redhawks — just one senior on the roster-—bowed on Friday at home 13-4 to St. Johnsbury Academy.

Junior Alannah Roy led the Hawks’ offense with a double and single.


The Champlain Valley Union High girls lacrosse team, following spring break, will return to the business of netting goals on Tuesday under the lights at Essex High.

Game time for the varsity is 7 p.m. with jayvees to kick off the competition in a 5:15 p.m. lid-lifter.

The Redhawks take a 3-2 record into the fray following an 11-5 home loss to a solid South Burlington High unit last Friday.

Abby Owens paced the Hawks with a pair of scores. Veteran Allie Flaherty was the Rebels’ leader with four goals.
