Handful of area players make SVL Girls First Team
BRATTLEBORO — After helping the Bellows Falls varsity girls basketball team to a 16-6 record, seniors Taylor Goodell and Halle Dickerson were both named Southern Vermont League Division C First Teamers.
Goodell scored her 1,000th career point with a left-handed shot from in close during a playoff victory over Winooski. "Agent 0" went off for 29 points when the Terriers handed West Rutland its lone loss.
Also making it onto a First Team were Brattleboro's Rachael Rooney and Lauryn Sargent, along with Twin Valley's Katelyn Longe. Rooney was one of the area's best players in the clutch, making two free throws with 0.1 seconds left to beat Burr and Burton and later sinking a 3 as time expired to defeat Monument Mountain.
Longe led the Wildcats with 217 points this past season. Sargent finished with seven points and eight rebounds in Brattleboro's playoff loss to Rice.
