Former CVU golfer in good form

Jack Tomashot, the top player on the Champlain Valley Union High golf team this past spring, has been faring well on the links this summer.

Tomashot recently finished second by a single stroke to Rand Burroughs in the championship flight for the 2010 Cedar Knoll Country Club championship in Hinesburg. Burroughs fired a 159 in the two title rounds while Tomashot posted a 160.

Prior to that, Tomashot took third place in the Vermont Golf Association junior championships at Middlebury’s Ralph Myhre course, shooting a 76 to finish seven strokes off the winning 69 of Greg Scott.

Annual Red-White grid contest Saturday

The Champlain Valley Union High football team will wind up its first practice week Saturday morning with the annual Red-White intra-team scrimmage starting at 10 a.m.

It is an opportunity for parents and the general public to get a look at the 2010 edition of the football Redhawks.

Two CVU foes are June Athletes of the Month

Two longtime opponents of Champlain Valley Union High athletic teams have been named Vermont’s June Athletes of the Month by the Vermont Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association.

Brittany Pfaff, a multi-sport star at Rice Memorial High, won four events in the state Division 2 track and field championships and followed up with a victory in the Vermont heptathlon to capture the girls Athlete of the Month honor.

Pfaff was also a standout soccer and basketball player for Rice.

One of the other nominees was Kylie deGroot of CVU, who led her girls tennis team to an undefeated season and the Division 1 crown.

The boys award went to Casey Harmon, a former South Burlington High star, who helped pitch Clemson University into the College World Series and then to third place at the Omaha, Neb. event.

Harmon was a familiar foe for CVU baseball teams and hurled the Rebels past the Redhawks three years ago in the Division 1 title test at the University of Vermont’s Centennial Field.
