MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury College women’s hockey team sent another postseason crowd of about 1,000 fans home happy on Saturday, when the Panthers dominated UMass-Boston, 4-0, in an NCAA quarterfinal played at Kenyon Arena.

The crowd for the 21-4-3 Panthers’ semifinal against No. 1 Plattsburgh (27-1) at 3:30 p.m. Friday will not be as friendly — the Cardinals’ Stafford Arena, where the home team always enjoys solid support. The final is set for 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Boys Hoop All-stars.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — Although probably none of the area high school boys’ basketball teams will look back at this winter as memorable, the intermural competition among them often was; they seemed to bring out the best from each other, with 10 of their collective 18 wins coming locally, often in close games.

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — As higher profile and higher stakes talks have gone on between New Haven and the companies proposing a major new underground power line from New York state to New Haven, quieter negotiations have also been held in Ferrisburgh, another critical link in the planned 60-mile, $600 million project.

Massachusetts companies Anbaric Transmission and National Grid, the developers of the 400-megawatt Vermont Green Line, hope to bring hydro and wind power from upstate New York by cable under Lake Champlain and into the New England power grid via New Haven.

RIPTON — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ Nordic team last week claimed the Division II state championship in dominant fashion — with a two-day performance at the Rikert Nordic Center that probably would have been good enough to also win the D-I title.

The Tiger boys breezed to wins in all four D-II events, the 5-kilometer freestyle race and the freestyle relay on Tuesday, and the 5K classic-style race and classic relay on Thursday.
