VERGENNES — Recent presentations by Vergennes Union High School students marked an important milestone in the school’s decade-long transition to requiring students to demonstrate mastery of material before they graduate, rather than just sit in their seats and earn classroom credits.

VERGENNES — Like probably most members of the Vergennes Union High School class of 2016, Panton resident Julia Johnson did not welcome last week’s mandatory Proficiency Based Graduation Requirement (PBGR) presentation.

MIDDLEBURY — On Monday, for the second straight game the Middlebury Union High School boys’ lacrosse team gave a Division I power all it could handle, but came up just short, this time to third-ranked South Burlington, 8-7.

Two days before, the 6-8 Tigers lost to visiting first-place Champlain Valley, 7-6. And that result followed a convincing, 9-5 win at Mount Mansfield, a team the Tigers needed overtime to defeat at home on May 9.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Union High School boys’ tennis team took one step closer to an undefeated regular season on Wednesday, when the Tigers edged visiting U-32, 4-3.
