BURLINGTON — After the No. 2 Vergennes Union High School baseball team made it through a rocky first inning in their Division II semifinal win over No. 6 Otter Valley, winning pitcher Charlie Stapleford described the Commodores as resilient.

Fortunately for the Commodores, that description proved to the prophetic.

In Saturday’s D-II final at the University of Vermont’s Centennial Field, VUHS, trailed, 3-0, after one inning against No. 13 Missisquoi — and ace pitcher Matt St. Amour.

VERGENNES –– The scene behind Vergennes Union High School was horrifying. Shattered glass littered the ground around two totaled cars. A teenage girl lay unconscious on the hood of one car. Other teens were slumped in their seats, covered in blood.

It seemed real ­­­­­­–– and that was the intended effect.

VERGENNES — In 2007, the Vergennes Union High School baseball team defeated both Otter Valley and Mount Abraham on the way to the Division II title.

This spring, the Commodores are hoping history will repeat itself.

In a Friday quarterfinal, No. 2 VUHS hung on for a 3-2 win over the No. 10 Eagles that ended when Mount Abe stranded the go-ahead runs in scoring position.

VERGENNES — Late one recent morning, Vergennes Union High School junior Ashley Stearns burst into Judy Wiger’s science classroom.

“I’m mad at you,” Stearns told Wiger. “I’m mad at you because you’re leaving.”

The two hugged, but Wiger told Stearns she couldn’t talk to her right then: Wiger had scheduled an interview to talk with a newspaper reporter about her retirement this month after three decades at VUHS.

ESSEX — Athletes from the Mount Abraham, MUHS and VUHS teams competed in the major Essex Invitational Track and Field Meet on Saturday, an event that draws athletes from all divisions from around the state.

No team scores are kept; the meet serves as the final opportunity for athletes to perform well enough to qualify to compete in the New England championship meet.

Several athletes posted top-10 results while achieving that goal, notably VUHS junior Jon Welch, who was second and sixth in two boys’ hurdling events.

BRISTOL — The Vergennes Union High School baseball team rallied to tie host Mount Abraham in the seventh and plated the winning run in the eighth on Thursday to defeat the Eagles, 4-3, in a back-and-forth game.

The winning rally started with a leadoff single by Nick Richer off losing pitcher Tommy Nelson, Richer’s second safety of the afternoon. Zach Ouellette sacrificed pinch-runner Austin Burnett to second base, and Burnett slid home safely — barely — on Justus Sturtevant’s second hit of the game, a soft single to right field.

The Eagles trailed at the break, 5-4, but earned an 11-1 edge in shots on goal in the third period to take an 8-5 lead into the fourth. VUHS goalie Erik Averill made seven of his 21 saves in the quarter to keep his team close.

VERGENNES — It’s been a long time since the Vergennes Union High School softball team has been able to enjoy being in first place — the late 1990s, when the Commodores won the Metro Conference championship.

But after Tuesday’s 8-3 win over visiting Burlington, the Commodores can make that claim again: At 4-0, with three straight wins over Division I Metro teams, VUHS sits on top of the D-III standings, just ahead of Windsor (5-1).
