Senior athletes from Champlain Valley Union High got in some galaxy time with fellow all-stars this past weekend in boys hockey and basketball.

Five members of the CVU Division 1 champion hockey team were named to the Harris Conference stars for the 26th annual Key Bank Rotary All Star Hockey Classic Saturday at the Essex rink. The Redhawks helped their Harris mates down their Austin Conference counterparts, 6-3.

CVU forward Sam Spencer contributed a goal and assist while his teammate, Ben Soll, fired in a goal.

Also on the team were forwards Brady DeHayes and Tim Reichert, along with defensemen Owen Smith and Chris Howard.

Playing in the annual Senior High School Basketball Classic in Windsor on Saturday, CVU’s John Donnelly tallied eight points in his Division 1 and 2 North team’s 86-59 bashing of the South.

The day was a four-game sweep for the North, which also took the Division 3 and 4 boys and both girls’ contests.

The North came away with a 26-10 advantage in the series, which is sponsored by the Vermont Basketball Coaches Association.
