Lake Region Union High School hosted a six-team relay race on Tuesday.  Among the teams competing were:  North Country Union High School, Lyndon, Peoples, Hazen, Stowe, and Lake Region (LR).

It was a beautiful day, warm, sunny, 70 degrees, and not a cloud in the sky. The first part of Lake Region’s course is riddled with hills, leading into the woods behind the school. The latter part of the trail is all downhill, though, which tends to bring out the best in these runners. Especially when they don’t have to worry about puddles and loose soil.

The Lake Region Union High School Rangers lost a hard fought battle with the Bellows Free Academy Fairfax (BFA) Bullets, 3-1, Friday afternoon. The Rangers — who came into the game at the top of their division and undefeated — knew they had their work cut out for them.

The game began on a high note, with both teams playing aggressively from the jump. The competition was heated, and the game play physical. The sight of bodies colliding, falling, and lying prone upon the pitch became a familiar one as the game progressed. These two evenly matched teams were vying hard for the upper hand, but the Bullets out-hustled the Rangers in the end.

DERBY — At age 19, Kendra Perkins was no stranger to national dance competition. She had been there four times before.

July 7 to 12 was her fifth time at the Sheer Talent competition, and she came home from Las Vegas with a titanium medal. Her score was 298 out of a possible 300 points from three judges.

“I came off the stage and I was bawling,” she said. She thought she had done badly. A perfectionist, she often reviews videos of herself dancing to try to improve. It turns out she did pretty well, even though she wasn’t satisfied herself.

MEMPHIS, Tennessee — We are the Orleans County Challengers. Players from Glover, Irasburg, Albany, Orleans and Derby compete for us. We got together for our first practice in March after our junior high basketball season ended. Despite being competitors just days before, we all immediately got along. Not only playing basketball but off the court, too, we were all friends before teammates.

It was obvious in our first game, that in Vermont, we would be a force to be reckoned with, scoring 79 points in our first game together. After four tournaments, with four games in each one, we were champions — we hadn’t lost a single game.
