Girls Lacrosse

The girls lacrosse team saw their season come to a close much sooner than anticipated with a 12-9 loss to CVU. The Rebels hosted the Redhawks on Friday for the quarterfinals and just couldn’t find their offensive groove. The Rebels were thwarted by CVU netminder Ali Wainer who kept the team from gaining any momentum, piling up 12 saves.

Seniors Annika Nielsen (2 goals), Kimmy Norris (3 goals), Ava Hultgren (2 goals), Melissa Valgoi, Julia Finnegan, and Mia Wood have been pivotal to the success of the team this year. The team finishes the 2017 season at 13-3.

Boys Golf

The boys golf team had a great day at the Division 1 Sectional Qualifier in the driving rain on Tuesday, May 30 at Manchester Country Club. The 12 teams competing in the event were vying for one of six spots to go on to the state championships at Vermont National. Last year’s champion North Country had all five scorers returning, state champions and perennial favorite Rutland were the top teams. The Rebels entered the day ranked out of the top six having shot team scores under 360 only once this year. Despite awful conditions, they shot a 339 tying for the final spot to get into the championship! The team was led by Kyle McLane whose one over par 73 was only bested by Jared Nelson’s 69 and 72s from Logan Broyles and North Country’s Tyler Smith. Rutland shot 306 to win the day with North Country at 310. Other qualifiers were Essex (324), Mount Mansfield (333) and Burr and Burton (339). The other Rebel scorers were Carleton Plourde (88), Jagr Rinehart (88), and Adam Sobczak (90). 

Softball

The Rebel softball team hosted Rutland in a home play down game early last week, winning 3-1. The key offensive blow came when Abby Dubuque singled and then scored on a Zeile Condon- Layman two-run homerun to center field. South Burlington would add another run on a sacrifice fly by Anna Borrazzo, driving home Liz Sargent. Rutland would score a run in the 4th to finish the scoring. Anna Borrazzo earned the win in the circle striking out 13 while allowing only four hits. With the win, the Rebels moved on to play Colchester who dealt the Rebels their last loss on May 16.  

Playing at Colchester on June 2, South Burlington jumped out early. Brianna Belisle drew a leadoff walk and Sarah Brown ripped a double into right center field. Belisle beat the throw to the plate to give the Rebels the early lead. With the score 1-0 the Lakers threatened in the bottom of the second. With one out, they loaded the bases, but pitcher Anna Borrazzo struck out a batter and induced a ground out to get out of the jam. The top of the third was the turning point. Belisle led off with a single and stole second. Liz Sargent singled with one out scoring Belisle from second. Kaity Groen reached on a fielder choice. Abby Dubuque then hit a sacrfice fly to center field to score Sargent from third. Zelie Condon-Layman followed that with a single down the first baseline scoring Groen and puuting SB up 4-0. The score stayed the same until the Lakers strung together a walk and a single followed by a two run double by Riley Magoon. With the score 4-2 the Rebels added some insurance. Brown reached on an infield single and scored when Sargent ripped a triple into the left field corner. With the score 5-2 and needing only one out to reach the semi-finals, Magoon struck again driving the ball off the right field fence for a double. The next batter single to shallow center field and Magoon rounded third and headed for home. Condon- Layman fielded the ball and fired a strike to Belisle who tagged out the diving Magoon for the final out. With the win the South Burlington Softball team will play in the first ever semi-final game against Mt. Anthony.

Baseball

South Burlington’s baseball season came to an end on June 1 after losing on the road to Burlington, 2-0. The eleventh seeded Rebels fought hard but couldn’t get the offense going.
