BARRE — After the Vergennes Union High School boys’ basketball team defeated No. 2 Burr & Burton in Saturday’s Division II final, 62-49, the No. 1 Commodores’ hundreds of fans — who once again made a neutral site sound like a home game — chanted what their team had accomplished for the first time in program history.
MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ hockey and girls’ basketball teams dropped Division I postseason games this past Wednesday. The Tiger girls' hockey team was edged in a semifinal game on Saturday.
Not only did the Vergennes Union High School boys’ basketball team make history on Saturday afternoon when the Commodores completed their 24-0 season and won the Division II title.
So did their coach, Peter Quinn.
According to veteran Rutland Herald sports writer Tom Haley, only one other coach has won basketball titles with both girls’ and boys’ teams, Chris Hughes of Proctor High School.
