NEWPORTâ€“Lake Region played host to North Country at the Prouty Beach tennis courts on Wednesday, but the Falcons still felt that home town advantage and defeated the Lady Rangers 7-0.
"We needed this win. We have played some very difficult matches lately, especially ones against Montpelier and Middlebury," said North Country coach Marie George. "The 3-4 loss to Mount Mansfield on Monday really prepared the team for this win."
Unfortunately for Lake Region it was a very one sided affair as the Falcons allowed only two sets to go the Rangersâ€™ way.
ORLEANSâ€“Fairfax freshman fireballer Kayla Mathieu stymied Lake Regionâ€™s bats, tossing a no-hitter, while her teammates gave her more than enough support in a 20-1 schoolgirls softball game Wednesday night.
â€śOur first two games against them, they threw (senior pitcher) Ruby (Bushey), and we knew we could hit her,â€ť said Ranger coach Matt Tinker. â€śWe were actually pretty confident coming in. But we werenâ€™t prepared for this girl (Mathieu). She was just phenomenal.â€ť
