On the Ball: Playoff seeds are out
OK, the Vermont Principals’ Association released field hockey and soccer pairings this afternoon, and there were few surprises.

The Vermont Principals’ Association will release playoff pairings sometime in the early afternoon on Monday for the eight Middlebury, Mount Abraham, Otter Valley and Vergennes soccer teams, all of whom compete in Division II; and the D-I MUHS field hockey and D-II OV and Mount Abe teams.
