Lady Pacers to lead off on Friday night

Posted

BRATTLEBORO — The winter sports season will begin at the Stable, with the Hinsdale varsity girls basketball team hosting Sunapee on Friday night at 6.

The Lady Pacers went 20-2 last season, including a 42-31 loss to Littleton in the Division 4 state championship game. Center Angelina Nardolillo had a double-double (11 points, 12 rebounds) in that finale.

That will be followed by a rematch of a Division 2 girls ice hockey semifinal, when Brattleboro plays at Missisquoi Valley on Saturday at 1 p.m.

"It was an unbelievable crowd. We had so much support," said coach Eugene Frost after his team's 2-1 loss in that thriller. Juliana Miskovich scored a wraparound goal with 1:11 remaining before the BUHS fans went berserk.

The Twin Valley varsity boys basketball team, which fell to Poultney 46-42 in a Division 4 semifinal last season, will open up in the Proctor Tournament on Dec. 12 at 5:30 p.m. Jack McHale (20 points) and Izaak Park (12) were the top guns for the Wildcats in that Final Four contest.

Also coming off of a very successful season is the Brattleboro Nordic skiing team, which will debut at Prospect Mountain on Dec. 28 at 10 a.m. Henry Thurber placed seventh overall in the classical discipline, leading the Colonel boys to a silver medal in the 2019 state championship meet.

Christian Thomsen scored a team-high 172 points during the 2018-19 regular season to lead the Leland & Gray varsity boys basketball team, which will start out at MSJ on Friday the 13th at 7 p.m.

After going 15-6 last winter, the Bellows Falls varsity girls basketball team will open up at Fair Haven on Dec. 14 at 2:30 p.m. Taylor Goodell and Halle Dickerson were both named Marble Valley League First Teamers.
