On Friday, September 30th, the NCUHS Girls Varsity Soccer team ran a training session for the Junior High program in Derby. The session started with an overview of the high school program, expectations for the pre-season, and the fall try-out procedure explained by Varsity coaches Peter Alexander and Joe Batista. Both coaches Steve Farrow (7th grade) and Amanda Blaisdell (8thgrade) had their players participate in the dynamic stretch routine that mimics the soccer warm-up at UVM.
Our dad was a kind and gentle man. His height could have intimidated, but it never did.Each time that we were together, we would begin to plan when and where the next time would be. His dreams were magical, and he made them real. He lives in us, in our children and in those he loved and who loved him. Nothing on this earth in the 64 years that he shared with us can ever take that from our hearts.
ORLEANSâ€“"My hats of to Enosburg, and that's all I'm going to say."
Those are the only words spoken to me by Coach Tom Evans after Lake Region's 2-0 loss to Enosburg on Monday night.
Judging by his words and tone, coach, you can imagine how Evans felt about his team's performance on the pitch.
Things started out on the wrong foot for LR personnel wise as sophomore goaltender Alex Beauregard started the game on the bench due to what sources cited as a disciplinary matter.

LOWELL â€“ Last week the Agency of Natural Resources (ANR) issued a stop work order against Green Mountain Power (GMP) on the Lowell Mountain wind project due to issues that arose with storm water runoff.
The stop work order was for building on the road, not other work, said a spokesperson with GMP Monday. Work is continuing on creating storm water management.
According to Dotty Schnure, the construction got ahead of itself and the implementation of the storm water management fell slightly behind. Now work is underway to compete that work, Schnure said.
