First up, this just in (and no surprise, really): I was wrong. And happy to say so.

When the Middlebury women’s lacrosse team lost to Tufts in the NESCAC quarterfinals, 13-12, a week ago Sunday, I assumed and wrote the 11-5 Panthers’ season was over. But their strength of schedule — all five of their losses came to teams ranked in the top 17, and Middlebury has five top-19 wins — earned Coach Missy Foote’s Panthers a berth in the NCAA Division III tournament.

BRISTOL — It hasn’t been a typical spring for Mount Abraham Union High School baseball, which has won five Division II championships since 2001, including the 2010 title in dramatic, extra-inning fashion.

On Friday and Saturday, the Eagles dropped two home games, 7-5 to Colchester and 6-2 to Rice, respectively, and their record fell to 1-5.

MIDDLEBURY — Although the Middlebury Union High School girls’ lacrosse team perennially contends for the Division I title and reached the final a year ago, the Tigers entered this year with questions to answer.

A new coach, Kelley Higgins, brought an extensive experience guiding field hockey teams, including the successful Tiger program, but a more limited background in lacrosse. And seven starters are gone from the 2010 finalists, including the entire starting defense and attack.

Well, so far, so good.

BRISTOL — The Mount Abraham Union High School boys’ lacrosse team took control of Saturday’s game against visiting Vergennes with defense, allowing the Commodores only two shots on goal and taking a 7-1 halftime lead on the way to a 13-5 win.

Eagle Coach Tim McGowan’s second-year varsity program evened its record at 3-3, while the Commodores — who have been plagued by postponements and rain-soaked home turf — fell to 0-2.

MIDDLEBURY — The improved 2011 version of the Middlebury Union High School boys’ tennis team moved to 2-0 on Monday, when the Tigers defeated visiting U-32, 4-0, in a rain-shortened match.

A year ago, a Tiger team with only eight players often had to forfeit either a singles or a doubles match against each opponent finished 3-11. This year, Coach Franz Kollas’s team doubled in size to 16 and has healthy competition up and down the ladder for spots.
