Lady Rangers Ready for the Challenges of 2011-2012

December 4, 2011

ORLEANS–Coming off a season that took them to the Division Two State Finals, the Lake Region Lady Rangers basketball team will have their work cut out for them if they wish to get back to Barre in 2012.
Head Coach Mark Tinker is realistic about what he lost from last season, but that means in no way he is not confident about his team this year.
"It is going to be different. We graduated some seniors that have been pretty instrumental in the program since they were freshman and sophomores and on up through.

MIDDLEBURY–An outpouring of offense in the second half propelled the South over the North 35-8 in the 11th Annual North-South All-Star Football Game.

November 9, 2011

NEWPORT–While most people don't get a chance to see it, North Country Cross-Country coach Chris Shaffer is doing good things with the program.
For the second time in his two years as head coach, the Falcons will once again be represented at this weekends' New England Cross Country Championship in Rhode Island, but Shaffer knows that he is just a part of the success that the athletes have had.
"There is a point where all my talking and all my running next to them can only go so far, because once race day comes it's how determined they are and what abilities they bring."

BullDogs Hold off Falcon Comeback 37-26

November 6, 2011

NEWPORT-The North Country Falcons came back from a 37-6 deficit by dominating the second half of Friday night’s Division two playoff game. However, that early 31 point margin was too much to come back from as the Falcons were ousted from the semi final round by the score of 37-26, one game short of a championship game bid.

North Country Season Ends in 3-0 Loss to MVU

October 30, 2011

SWANTON–The Falcons put it all on the line on Friday afternoon against the Missisquoi Thunderbirds, but MVU was just too good, topping North Country 3-0.
"They had the game of their life," said Coach Bouchard, "They knew it could potentially be their last game, so they gave it their all."
Despite losing by a larger margin than in their previous bout with MVU, North Country played a much better game. They were significantly more aggressive, and had several forays into T-Bird territory, compared to their limited time spent in the blue and white's end the first time out.
