Williston batters hit it out of the park

Observer staff report

The inaugural Dick’s Sporting Goods Hitting Contest was held recently at Williston Community Park, as part of the annual Williston Little League Hit-A-Thon. This new contest was designed to challenge upper division ball players. Majors level softball and baseball players and AAA level baseball players each competed for the hitting crown, with points awarded to outfield hits and over-the-fence homers.
At least 10 balls were hit out of the park, some over the recreation path.
The overall winners in each division were: Allie Zouck, 12 (Majors Softball); Storm Rushford, 12 (Majors Baseball); and Joshua Perkins, age 9 (AAA Baseball). Leading up to the division championships in baseball, the team level winners were: Noah LeCours, 9; Brady Halverson, 9; Owen Pierce, 10; Baker Angstman, 12; and Griffin McDermott, 12.
Williston’s Little League season is winding down. More than 280 Williston players have participated. Games are held most nights at fields at Williston Central and Allen Brook schools and at Rossignol Field and Brennan Park.

    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.
