SBHS Girls Alpine Ski Team Takes 1st Place at Saturday’s NVAC District Championships

 A 1st place finish in the Giant Slalom by South Burlington’s Annike Nielson helped propel the South Burlington girl’s alpine ski team to a 1st place team finish at Saturday’s NVAC District Championships at Sugar Bush. Nielson finished with a combined course time of 1:33.90. Other notable performances on the slopes came from South Burlington’s Ava Hultgren, who finished 9th in GS, Madi Grabowski (12th), and Ali Barron (26th). These gutsy performances contributed to South Burlington’s team score of 119, four points ahead of 2nd place finisher Harwood. Nielsen also posted a 4th place finish in the Slalom course for the Rebels. While South Burlington will be celebrating this big win, the Rebels will also be looking ahead to the State Championship races.

 The Rebels got bounced out of the first round of the playoffs last Wednesday, falling to Mount Mansfield 55-35. The Cougars kept the Rebel offense off balance, shutting down early scoring attempts, creating turnovers, and forcing difficult shot attempts from South Burlington’s shooters. Mount Mansfield’s stifling defense culminated in a third quarter in which they held South Burlington to just four points, while extending a thirty point lead on Rebels. Jeremy Clements led the Rebels in scoring with eight points, while three Cougars reached double figures in scoring. The loss ends South Burlington’s season with a 9-12 record, while 5th seeded Mount Mansfield advanced in the playoffs to face 4th seeded St. Johnsbury.

Colchester’s Matty Cuce fired a shot wide of the South Burlington with one minute remaining in the first period of overtime last Wednesday. Recovering the puck in approximately the same position fifty seconds later, Cuce made up for the miss by firing it into the back of the Rebel net to give the Lakers a 3-2 victory and end South Burlington’s playoff run.  The Lakers shocked the Rebels from the opening period with two quick scores in the opening minute of the contest. Colchester took a 2-0 lead into the second period, when a nifty puck transition between Peter Camardo and Kyle MacDonald set up teammate Brendan Lahue for South Burlington’s first score of the game. Matt Baechle tied the game with another South Burlington goal with just over three minutes remaining in regulation to send the matchup into overtime. South Burlington and Colchester both had opportunities in the extra period to end the contest, with both teams getting multiple man-up opportunities in the period. Cuce’s score late in the period snatched the victory from the defending champions, as Colchester advances to face CVU in the playoff race. South Burlington’s Ben Greenstein made twenty-five saves in goal for the Rebels.
