Reichert, Soll gain lacrosse honors

Seniors Tim Reichert and Ben Soll have earned High School Lacrosse Coaches Association awards for the past season.

Reichert was named a U.S. Lacrosse All-American, one of five players in the state so honored. He was also selected for the National Senior All-Star game.

Soll was one of five Vermonters named a Green and Gold Outstanding Player of the Year. He was also chosen for the Division 1 All-State First team, along with Reichert.

CVU hockey player in national team tryouts

It may be the middle of the summer, but last week Eric Robinson, a defensive stalwart on the Division 1 champion Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team, was lacing up the skates in Rochester, N.Y. as one of 145 players on eight teams trying for positions on the U-17 national team.

Robinson was the only Vermonter and one of three players from northern New England named to the 10-member New England team taking part in the summer camp. Last winter he was an All-State first team member.

Stars of summer

Williston’s 9- and 10-year-old Little League All-Star Team jumped out to a fast start in the District 1 Little League All-Star Tournament. The team went undefeated through its first four games, guaranteeing a top seed going into the upcoming double elimination tournament. Williston defeated North Burlington 10-0, Center City 11-1, South Burlington 11-8 and Burlington American 5-4 in extra innings.
