Hilltoppers Use Long Ball to Subdue Falcons

NEWPORT-The Saint Johnsbury Academy Hilltoppers used a high percentage outside attack and a balanced inside game as they captured their ninth straight victory this winter over the North Country falcons by an 84-46 final.

A suspension, according to locals who saw the contest, was unjust at best.
