6 area athletes had a memorable week
BRATTLEBORO — The late Stuart Scott probably screamed "boo-yah" from up above and Dick Vitale could only have described it as "awesome, baby" when Tony Martinez scored with three seconds left in overtime to give the Brattleboro varsity boys basketball team a thrilling 58-57 victory over Hartford up in White River Junction last Tuesday.
That was clearly this area's Most Memorable Moment from Jan. 17-23, but who would you vote for as our Player of the Week?
