CVU golfers even series with North Country

The Champlain Valley Union High golf team will return to the fairways Friday at Cedar Knoll after a narrow victory Tuesday over North Country Union at Kwiniaska. The latest win took some of the sting from last Friday’s loss to the Falcons at their home Newport Country Club course.

Vergennes Union High will be the host team this Friday.

Solid balance was the winning formula for the Redhawks Tuesday.

North Country’s Tyler Coulter was medalist with a 77, but CVU’s Chris Nigh was right behind him with a 79. Backing up Nigh were Cam Fitzgerald (81), Billy Wilson (85), Jack Tomashot (86) and Todd Forrester (87).

CVU’s team wound up with a two-stroke 331-333 triumph.

At Newport, North Country scored a 308-322 team win. Tomashot with a 75 and Nigh at 79 were the low scorers for the Redhawks.


North Country next for CVU softball combine

Following a solid 8-4 victory Tuesday afternoon over visiting 1-11 Spaulding High, Coach Corinna Hussey and her 4-8 Champlain Valley Union High softball team are looking forward to Thursday’s home contest against North Country Union High at 4:30 p.m.

Anna Supple and Cayla McCarthy shared the pitching chores in halting the Crimson Tide, while Leah Leister continued her heavy hitting of late with a double, two singles and three runs produced.

Saturday, in a narrow 6-5 loss to 7-4 Middlebury Union High on the road, Leister rapped two hits and drove in four runs.

Also providing sock in the win over Spaulding were Cassidy Maglaris and Susan Parmelee with two hits each.

Hussey praised the defensive work of Kayleigh Colbeth at second base and catcher Emily Himberg, who “called a great game behind the plate.”


Final home track meet approaches for CVU

The Champlain Valley Union High track and field team will close out its home campaign Tuesday when South Burlington High visits the Redhawks’ nest for a 3:30 p.m. start.

The varsity was in action Wednesday at Essex High while the freshmen will be at Essex on Friday for a meet starting at 3 p.m.
