Redhawk wrestlers await state meet

With a pair of strong performances in last weekend’s Jason Lowell Memorial Tournament at Mount Mansfield Union High, Champlain Valley Union High wrestlers turned up for the end-of-the-month State Meet with a trip to Essex on Wednesday evening.

At Mount Mansfield, Sam Fortin continued his standout season with a victory in the 171-pound class. Teammate Ryan Stearns secured third place in the 135-pound division.

The Redhawks scored a 47-24 victory at Enosburg High on Monday. CVU winners were Ryan Stearns (135 pounds), Tucker Stearns (152), Ryan Fleming (160), Fortin (171) and James Dattilio (285).


CVU ice men seek strong finish

In the wake of Monday’s 4-1 loss in Barre to 12-4-2 Spaulding High, the 10-6-2 Champlain Valley Union High boys hockey team was eyeing two opportunities to regain its winning stride before playoff time.

The Redhawks were home to North Country Union High on Wednesday night before ending the regular season at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday against Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans, a team they bopped 6-2 early in the season.

Goals came with regularity last Wednesday, a 9-1 victory over Rice Memorial. Kyle Logan notched his second consecutive hat trick and Robbie Dobrowski added a pair of scores.

On Friday, the Redhawks rolled out of Rutand after bagging a 4-1 triumph over the Red Raiders. Dobrowski fired a pair of goals (22 for the season), while Logan and Nate Lacroix each accounted for a goal and assist.

But on Monday, Spaulding net minder Chris Pelkey stopped 25 Redhawk shots, allowing only a Derek Goodwin counter. Mark Albertson had 26 stops for CVU. Spaulding got two tallies from Zach Dessereau.
