Unsurprisingly, four of first-year Coach John Howe’s Tigers earned berths on the 2019 Addison Independent Boys’ Basketball All-Star Team. And one of those four, Parker Beatty, put together a terrific senior campaign and is the 2019 Independent Boys’ Basketball Player of the Year.

MIDDLEBURY — Many members of the 2019 Middlebury Union High School varsity boys’ lacrosse team will remember their new head coach from when he taught them the basics of the sport in elementary school.

Another team member at the first spring practice, Tiger sophomore goalie Jack Rizzo, might recall seeing his coach earlier that day over, say, a bowl of Wheaties, at their Weybridge home.

BRANDON — Signs pointed to a close game on Tuesday when No. 9 Fair Haven visited No. 8 Otter Valley Union High School for a boys’ Division II basketball quarterfinal.

Both teams entered with 11-9 records. The Otters had twice defeated the Slaters this season and had most of a deafening standing-room-only home crowd behind them.

Fair Haven was the defending champion and had recently welcomed all-star senior Cam Coloutti back in the lineup after he left the team following a midseason dustup with longtime Coach Bob Prenevost.
