Here are my top three things that went on over the past week.
1. Summer baseball is in full swing, and with several local players competing at both the Legion and Junior Legion level and having success, like the OEC Lightning's pitcher Cody Chaput, who has been dominant on the mound, you should take a chance to go see them this week in Newport.
The Lightning play at 5:30 on Tuesday, and the OEC Kings, the Legion team, will take the field on Saturday for a doubleheader starting at 12:00.
A new feature you will see on our site every Sunday will be my top three sports stories from the week that was. It will be a combination of local and national sports stories, depending on the time of year, and it will be in no particular order.
Here are my Top Three From The Week That Was:
1. North Country graduate Whitney Bernier skated for Team Vermont in the Make-A-Wish all-Star Hockey Game.
