Cameron Curler wrapped out a double and a single to lead Vergennes to an impressive 8-1 win over Northfield in high school baseball action last Saturday.
John Kauffman, Jackson Alexander, and Dylan Beesnick contributed two hits apiece as well to the win, while Curler was the winning pitcher. Zach Daley and Pat Morales had doubles for Northfield who dropped to 2-5 with the loss. Vergennes improved to 5-2.
The Middlebury Tigers earned a win on the road last weekend, too.
Marshall Hastings had two hits, scored four runs and drove in three more to lead the Middlebury Tigers to a dominating 16-5 win over the Missisquoi Thunderbirds last Friday in Swanton.
Dane Liliestrand played a key role as well, matching Hastings two hits, scoring three times himself and scoring a run. Sean Harrison registered nine strikeouts on his way to a complete-game win. Ryan Plouff took the loss who remained winless at 0-6.
The Middlebury girls weren't so fortunate when the same two teams met on the softball diamond last weekend. Casey Boucher's two-out, two-run single in the fifth inning broke a 1-1 tie and led the Missisquoi Thunderbirds to a 3-2 win over the Tigers last Friday in Swanton.
Carley Gagne contributed a double and scored while Dena Vaillencourt provided a double and a single to the win. Offensively for the Tigers Mattea Bagley's run scoring double was the highlight of the day.
Gagne picked up the win for the Thunderbirds who improved to 5-1 with the win. Gagne gave up just two runs and three hits while recording 11 strikeouts in her seven innings of work. Lea Gipson took the tough loss for the visiting Tigers.
