CHITTENDEN COUNTY — The Mount Abraham Union High School baseball team dropped three road games against Chittenden County teams this past weekend, two in walk-off fashion on Saturday in different locations.

The Eagles dropped to 1-4 and will look to bounce back on Tuesday, when they host BFA-Fairfax.

On Friday, host Colchester pounded out a 12-2 win over the Eagles as Laker Tom Colgrove tossed a complete-game four-hitter for the win. Nolan Whitcomb doubled twice for half the Eagle hits, while Eben Clifford took the pitching loss.

BRISTOL — Hundreds of 5-Town residents will never forget it.

In the fall of 2011, nearly 100 students in bright yellow raincoats electrified the theater at Mount Abraham Union High School. Covered from one end to the other, the unusually wide stage seemed to push the students up through the floor, like flowers.

They were “Singin’ in the Rain,”of course.

BRISTOL — On a Thursday afternoon that saw flurries of snow, clutch hits from both high school baseball teams, and — understandably given the 35-degree weather — plenty of miscues, host Mount Abraham outlasted rival Vergennes, 15-14.

After Mount Abe bolted on top, 7-0, the Commodores came charging back. The lead changed hands four times in the final two innings before a bases-loaded, two-out miscue capped Mount Abe’s two-run rally in the bottom of the seventh and allowed the Eagles to win their season opener.

Bristol road foreman Eric Cota_cmyk 1077.jpg

BRISTOL - When Eric Cota started his new job as road foreman of the Bristol Highway Department on Saturday, the weather had plans for him.

Over three days, snow and wintry mixes turned into occasional heavy rain, and were followed by strong winds. 

“Thankfully no trees were down in the roads,” he said in an interview.

Then on Monday, in honor of Cota's 28th anniversary with the Highway Department, one of his trucks promptly quit on him.
