BRANDON — A school could get used to this: Otter Valley Union High School pitcher Brett Patterson threw a one-hitter in the No. 2 Otters’ 6-0 win over visiting No. 7 Lake Region in a Division II quarterfinals on Thursday.
A model of efficiency, Patterson threw just 67 pitches, struck out nine and walked none in just an hour and 20 minutes to send Lake Region packing. And the senior hurler and co-ace Justin Owen have been consistently on their pitching all season, helping the Otters to a 17-1 record.
VERGENNES — Another strong pitching effort backed by timely hitting and solid defense on Saturday means another trip to the Division II semifinal round for the Vergennes Union High School softball team.
In their 8-2 quarterfinal win over No. 6 U-32, the No. 3 Commodores’ got two-hit pitching from Taylor Paquette; a combined seven-for-seven effort with six runs and three RBIs from Nos. 4 and 5 hitters Cat Chaput and Dani Brown; and four RBIs from No. 7 hitter Tamara Aunchman.

BRISTOL — After all the caps fly into the air at Mount Abraham Union High School this Saturday, the members of its graduating senior class will scatter to various locations in pursuit of jobs, travel or further education.
One will travel farther than most. Jan Liegmann, Mount Abe’s only exchange student this year, will be returning to his home country of Switzerland in June.
