Varsity Girls Basketball Team Dominates Over MMU, 41-11
By Marcie Bolton
Tuesday evening Mount Mansfield Union High School (1-8) traveled south to play MUHS.   Middlebury‘s assistant coach Laura Emilo remarked, “The girls have been working hard, and we are really starting to understand how to play as a team and to our strengths. We play best and with the most energy when we are pressing, which you could see from the first half in last night’s game.  We played with a lot of enthusiasm.  All but 2 players scored.  It really was a team effort.”  Senior MUHS forward Chrissy Ritter had a game-high with 12 points, 7 steals and six rebounds. Junior guard Tiffany Danyow put in for 7 points and 5 steals.  Senior forward Madison Fuller scored 6 points.  The girls have their next game on February 8th against Vergennes.  [ more ]

When Theo Spencer dropped in at VUHS the other day, he literally unrolled his whole presentation, so to speak. He began his presentation to students suspended about forty feet above the gym floor on a piece of fabric. As he spoke, he rolled, twisted and defied gravity with the ease of his new found profession of circus arts student, circus acrobat and performer. While those on the ground gasped, held their breath and simply stood in awe, the message they received was more than instruction in acrobatics above the ground, but about choices and paths to be taken in life.
