CVU softball team nipped in final frame (4/23/09)

April 23, 2009

Coach Corrina Hussey and her Champlain Valley Union High softball team may have the Spaulding High of Barre team right where they want it Saturday morning: On the home field in Hinesburg.

The 0-2 Redhawks bowed to the Crimson Tide 10-9 Tuesday in Barre on a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the seventh and final inning.

Emily Himburg gave some sock to the Redhawks’ lineup, cranking out a double while going three-for-three and driving in a pair of runs. Chrissi Whitaker unloaded a three-run triple for CVU.
