MONTPELIER — On Jan. 1, 2020, new baitfish regulations will go into effect aimed at providing anglers with additional opportunities to use and harvest baitfish. “We spent the last two years listening to the public and working with the Fish and Wildlife Board to improve regulations while limiting the spread of fish diseases and invasive species,” said Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department Fisheries Biologist Shawn Good. “I think anglers will be pleasantly surprised by these new regulations.” Some changes include: •  Baitfish transportation receipts will be valid for 10 days instead of 4 days...

MONTPELIER — Vermont’s hunters will get one final chance for a deer this year during the muzzleloader deer season and the second part of the archery deer season.

MIDDLEBURY — After Sunday’s NCAA Division III Regional final, Coach Peter Kim of the host Middlebury College women’s soccer team called his six seniors the most successful class in the program’s history. The six seniors — goalie Ursula Alwang, forward Ellie Greenberg, and midfielders Virginia Charman, Olivia Miller, Caitlin Magruder and Sabrina Glaser, all but Glaser starters on Sunday — had helped the Panthers to make four consecutive NCAA appearances, including a run to the 2018 final, and win the 2018 NESCAC playoff championship. But after what proved to be a heartbreaking, 2-1 loss to...

The outlook was grim for the Panther five that day: We were down by 12 against Williams with only 2:12 left to play. But the hoop that so resisted Panther shots suddenly turned receptive — Middlebury’s desperate shots went in, as the Ephs clanged the foul shots that might have iced the game.  Middlebury ace, John Humphrey, described the game’s wild ending: “We were down four with just 15 seconds to go, and I hit a bomb. Down one now. We fouled, and they missed the front end of a one-and-one.' “There was a scramble for the ball, and I got it, and dribbled up the floor. Two guys came at me, and...
