MIDDLEBURY — After giving up more than 90 points in back-to-back losses and being outrebounded at Plattsburgh on Tuesday, the Middlebury College men’s basketball team restored order vs. visiting Skidmore on Saturday. While snapping that brief two-game skid with a 71-54 victory, the Panthers held the 4-3 Thoroughbreds to 32 percent shooting and outrebounded them, 48-44. With Tuesday’s loss at No. 10 Plattsburgh, the Panthers stand at 6-2 heading into two road games on Dec. 17 and 18. And they probably will drop from last week’s No. 18 ranking in NCAA Division III. But more importantly,...

ADDISON COUNTY — If a movie director pitched a script in which an all-star team leader capped a senior season with a hat trick in the championship game — and the third goal was the double-overtime game-winner — a studio head might reject the concept for not being believable. But that’s just what happened on the University of Vermont’s Moulton-Wynder field back on Nov. 3. And accomplishing that feat is one reason that Mount Abraham Union High School’s Jalen Cook earned another title: Addison Independent Player of the Year. Cook was one of a talented group that helped Coach Mary Stetson’s...
