It was not that long ago when CVU was known as “Soccer Central” and football did not exist at the high school level.
As the air becomes cooler and the leaves begin to fall, so too the Major League Baseball season comes to an end. For the Red Sox who are, at the moment, 89-69 (20 games over the .500 mark), this season was a huge turnaround from the 2020 campaign, in which the Sox were only 24-36.
The Redhawk fall sports season is off to a full start. Football, volleyball, soccer, field hockey, golf, cross-country running—with exception of football and field hockey, all others carry both men’s and women’s teams.
Along with Tim Albertson being named Coach of the Year, the Redhawks had a number of players achieve recognition for their accomplishments.
Between the playing of Twin State and North-South All Star Classics, plus the naming by the coaches of the players to participate, Vermont High School athletes have been kept busy. In fact, the CVU Redhawks, have been some of the busier ones.

March 2 saw the lady Redhawks honor five teammates playing their final years at CVU and carrying on the winning tradition. A dominating victory over St. Johnsbury Academy, 55-23, helped matters. The five are Maddie Reagan, Josie Pecor, Cathy Gilwee, Jade Leavitt and Maddie Mfochive.
In a rematch of Metro leaders, the South Burlington boys did what they couldn’t do only 11 days earlier and took home a hard fought 47 – 36 victory over Champlain Valley Union. Using a 14 – 4 margin in the 4th quarter, the Wolves outlasted their opponents on 3/9 at the Dave Bremner Gym, in Hinesburg.
CVU girls continued their dominance over opponents over the Green Knights while the boys outscored South Burlington by 14 points in the second half.
For a pandemic-driven school year, sports crop up at odd times and in limited spaces – limited in terms of fans-in-the-stands and in terms of where competition occurs so as not to endanger fellow competitors.
CVU’s ski racers saw only members of their own team on trails as they raced through the woods and down the slalom courses. This wariness of clustering several teams together was designed to limit the possibilities of interpersonal contact and, hence, the chance for corona infection.
Both men’s and women’s Twin-State soccer teams that are scheduled to play New Hampshire in July were named recently.
