BRISTOL — For the first time since 2011, the Mount Abraham Union High School basketball program will not appear in the Division II championship game in the Barre Auditorium, and the Eagles will not win their third straight title this season despite another strong season in which they earned the No. 2 seed in Division II and tied South Burlington for the Lake Division crown.

BRANDON — The Otter Valley Union High School boys’ basketball team dropped a pair of road games on back-to-back nights last week, missing a chance to clinch the No. 4 seed for the Division II playoffs.

As of Sunday, it was not certain whether the 14-6 Otters or Vergennes (13-7) would be the No. 4 seed; regardless, the other will be No. 5 and the teams will face each other in a quarterfinal if both win their first-round games.
