Wildcat Golf Season ends at Sectionals

BRANDON – The Hazen Union golf team’s rain shortened season came to an end last week at Neshobe Golf Club, falling short of qualifying for next week’s state tournament.

The Wildcats team total of 420 placed them twelfth last Thursday in Division II sectional qualifying. Xavier Hill led Hazen Union with a 99, followed by Tyler Rivard (101), Brendan Moodie (109), Jadon Baker (111), and Andrew Menard (112). Joseph Barwood of Hartford was the Division II medalist with a low round of 75. Stowe’s Isaiah Thomas (77) and Peoples Academy’s Ty Whyte (80) will join Barwood next week as state qualifiers at Orleans Country Club. Hartford, Otter Valley, Stowe, Harwood, Woodstock, and Peoples Academy will compete in the team competition next week for the right to claim the Division II state championship.

“Our team played well at sectionals, they had some rough holes to start and then all recovered nicely. For the year we had some rain-outs so I’m glad we were able to get five players to qualify for sectionals. Xavier, Jadon, and Andrew all improved their score from last year and I’m glad Jadon got to play for us for all four years, making it to two sectionals, and earning a medalist honor in his career. Tyler and Brendan had great rounds for their first sectionals and Tyler put in extra effort this year to qualify and also earned his first medalist honors in our last home match. Xavier, Brendan, and Andrew should all be back for next year’s sectionals with a chance to try to lower their scores some more. Eliot and Gavin will also be back with a chance to qualify. We want to thank Mountain View for letting us practice and host matches again this year,” said head coach Jason McArthur.

Lady Trojans Post Second Straight Shutout

BRADFORD – The Twinfield-Cabot girls’ soccer team battled to a double overtime scoreless draw with Oxbow last week to improve to 1-6-1 on the season.

Ida Astick and the Lady Trojan defense recorded their second straight shutout last Tuesday, earning a hard fought 0-0 draw on the road at Oxbow. Astick continued to play well in net for Twinfield-Cabot, making six stops on the day. MaKenna Simmons made five saves for the Lady Olympians as they improved to 1-4-3 on the season.

“All in all it was a good effort for us as it took a little bit to get into a rhythm. They were defending us aggressively, but it was a well fought match from both sides,” said head coach Seth Wilmott.

The Lady Trojans will welcome Danville to town on Wednesday as they recognize the high school careers of Ginger Klarich, Aleacya Moshinskie, and KimLinh DeBona on Senior Day.
