Falcon Girls Take Second, Boys Seventh in Stowe

January 9, 2012

STOWE–The North Country nordic teams headed to the Mount Mansfield Resort Nordic Center in Stowe on Friday.
Christina Cotnoir was in attendance and said that, "The weather was mild and the atmosphere was festive! The race went quickly due to the mass starts. It was fun to watch as the skiers started en mass, furiously double-poling to gain a good position on the narrow trail which wound into the woods. The next time the skiers appeared was on the top of a hill. The spectators cheered all the skiers as they whizzed past us down the hill. Many spectacular crashes kept it exciting."

Falcons Sweep Season Series Against MMU, Win 42-7

January 8, 2012

NEWPORT–If you thought the hurt that the North girls basketball team put on MMU the first time they met was bad, it was nothing compared to the demoralizing 42-7 whopping they dished out on Thursday night.
"We were all stoked, we pretended like it was going to be Rice and we played better defense" said Kelsey O'Donnell on how NC was able to reduce the number of points allowed.
Quite frankly, she is right. They did not just play better defense, they played stifling defense which led to North Country allowing an average 1.75 points per quarter in the win.
