On the Ball: Panther Field Hockey Catches a Cabrini

On the Ball: Panther Field Hockey Catches a Cabrini

Six points is an off day for, say, the Fair Haven football team against Middlebury Union High School in a Division II semifinal.

Six goals in a field hockey game? Well, that’s another story.

But that’s what the Middlebury College field hockey team racked up on Wednesday afternoon against overmatched Colonial States Athletic Conference champion Cabrini, which drove a long way from near Philadelphia to absorb a 6-0 loss in a first-round NCAA Division III tournament game.

On the Ball: Panthers dancing

Five (!) Middlebury College teams are moving along in the NCAA Division III title hunt this week. Four of them — the volleyball, men’s and women’s cross-country, and men’s soccer teams — earned automatic berths in national tournaments by prevailing in NESCAC play, the runners the weekend before last and the volleyballers and soccer players on Sunday.

Notes from the Border: The walkability factor

Posted on November 5, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Rebecca Reimers



When Brandon’s new town plan was drafted several years ago, walkability was one of the major assets that residents cited.  Historic development of Brandon has kept the original village compact, and new housing on Mt. Pleasant and along the spoke streets radiating out from downtown also tend to be small and close together.  The downtown shopping area has all the necessities within walking distance, including a supermarket, pharmacy, hardware store, library, three banks, a post office, and pizza and Chinese take-out restaurants.

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 VPA’s new in-season “Sports Rankings” – essentially division standings based on scores reported by coaches – proved to be pretty accurate. Teams ended up where they were projected to almost without exception.

On The Ball: Playoffs on tap

It seems like yesterday we were stifling in that 90-plus degree September heat wave, not bundling up and clutching cups of cocoa at football games.

But it’s true: Playoffs in high school boys’ and girls’ soccer and field hockey begin next week. 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.

On the Ball: Defense never rests

Posted on September 29, 2010 | Blog Category:
By Andy Kirkaldy



Let’s just say I have the background to respect defense in athletics.

I played defense, one season for my high school varsity soccer team and then two years for the Middlebury College B team. My daughter started on defense for a total of five seasons for two varsity teams at Middlebury Union High School, and now she does for her college field hockey team. Championships are rarely won without good defense; I won’t say that no one recognizes that more than I, but believe I understand the value of defense as much as anyone.
