ADDISON COUNTY — The Division II girls’ basketball playoffs got under way Tuesday, when 11th-seeded Vergennes bowed out with a loss at No. 6 Lake Region, 81-41.
When the Vermont Principals’ Association released pairings on Monday, Mount Abraham (15-4) was, as expected, awarded the No. 1 seed.
But the Eagles were idle on Tuesday because two teams, including No. 16 Middlebury (1-19) elected not to participate in the postseason.
