Lady Trojans Struggle with Injuries

MARSHFIELD – A depleted Twinfield-Cabot girls’ basketball team fell to Proctor, forfeited to Richford, and struggled offensively against Danville last week, dropping them to 3-13 on the season.

Isabel Greb poured in a game-high 26 points to lead Proctor to a 41-26 road win over the Lady Trojans last Monday. Cadence Goodwin added 11 points and 16 rebounds in the win for the Lady Phantoms as they improved to 6-10 on the season.

Laci Potter led all scorers with 15 points to power Danville to a 33-10 home win over Twinfield-Cabot on Thursday. Kendall Hale, Lauren Joncas, and Lynsey Lavely combined for 15 more to help fuel a 22-3 first half run to put the game out of reach. After a slow start to the season, Danville has won five in a row, moving up to eighth in the current Division IV standings. The Lady Trojans have lost eight straight, including three to forfeit since losing four of their five starters to season ending injuries.

Twinfield-Cabot is scheduled to travel to Winooski on Tuesday before wrapping up the regular season at home against Williamstown on Thursday.

Another Runner-up Finish for Charger Bowlers

RANDOLPH – The Craftsbury Academy (CA) bowling team claimed their fourth runner-up finish of the season last week as Randolph hosted the Chargers, Windsor, and Hartford at the Valley Bowl.

CA came out firing, qualifying first overall as a team and steamrolled into the Baker round with a lot of momentum. The Chargers bested Randolph in the opening round, exacting some revenge on a loss to the Galloping Ghosts last week. Windsor swept CA in the championship round in a tight match, 143-136 and 171-170. Senior Will Patnoe leads the Chargers in scoring average and is ranked in the top five in the state high school rankings.

Twinfield-Cabot will host CA this Saturday at Twin City Lanes in Barre to wrap up the regular season.
