Champlain Valley Union High School tennis teams are set to compete against St. Johnsbury High School on Saturday, the girls at their home court at Shelburne and the boys on the road.

On May 6, the 4-4 boys lost to strong South Burlington High School, which also defeated the Redhawks in late April.

On Tuesday, the boys played a long-overdue makeup game against Essex High, which was rained out on April 12. Essex tipped CVU 6-1.

The girls tennis team will head into Saturday’s match undefeated, with a 9-0 record. It will be the first time they face St. Johnsbury.

“They are undefeated as well and we anticipate they will be especially strong at the top of their singles ladder,” Coach Amy deGroot wrote in an email to the Observer.

On Monday, the Redhawks beat South Burlington High 5-2 for the second time this season, though deGroot said it was a closer match than the score indicates. On Friday, the beat Stowe High 6-1 and May 1 toppled Rice 7-0.

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
