Top-seeded Redhawks head into girls basketball playoffs

Observer staff report

After securing the number 1 seed—to no one’s surprise—the Champlain Valley Union High girls basketball team is set to play Mount Anthony Union High Friday night in a quarterfinal matchup.

The Redhawks, who closed out the regular season with a 20-0 record after defeating Essex High 58-27 last Thursday, defeated 16th-seed Spaulding High 49-38 Tuesday night.

If the Redhawks win Friday’s quarterfinal game, they will take on the winner of Friday’s game between fourth-seeded Burlington High and fifth-seeded North Country Union High in a semi-final game set for Tuesday at the University of Vermont.

The championship game is set for March 8 at 7 p.m. at the University of Vermont.
