Area trio make MVL 1st Team
After helping the Bellows Falls varsity girls basketball squad to a 15-6 record, Taylor Goodell and Halle Dickerson were each named MVL Division B 1st Teamers. Goodell does a little bit of everything, with her performance versus Arlington (10 points, 8 assists, 7 steals) being the norm while "Agent Zero" led the Terriers with a dozen points during their playoff game in Springfield.
Eleven other area players were named to an MVL 2nd Team, including Twin Valley's Maria Page who exploded for 17 points during a postseason game against Twinfield, Brattleboro's Rachael Rooney who smiled at her dad after drilling a backbreaking 3 against Burr and Burton on Senior Night, rising star Arin Bates of Leland & Gray, and the fundamentally-sound Abbe Cravinho of Bellows Falls.
State champions Fair Haven and West Rutland are both represented well, combining for eight total All Stars. The complete MVL teams for each division are shown below.
