Staff Reports

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — The surging Hartford High girls basketball team pulled away in the second half to top visiting Woodstock, 55-31, on Monday night.

The Hurricanes improve to 8-5 with the win and have now won four games in a row, and five of six, to rebound from a slow start to the season. Woodstock falls to 1-11 with the loss.

Hartford led, 23-19, after a tightly-contested first half. The Canes built a little more breathing room in the third quarter and then closed the game on a 20-3 run.

Jasmine Jenkins had 19 points to lead Hartford. Kennedy Mullen had 13 points. Bailey Cameron made three 3-pointers and finished with 12 points. Davan Murphy chipped in nine points on a trio of buckets from beyond the arc.

Emma Tarleton had 10 points to pace Woodstock, which hosts Mill River on Wednesday.

The Hurricanes continue to take leaps forward this season after a 5-16 record a year ago.

Up next for Hartford is a home date with Springfield on Thursday.

White River Valley 52
Green Mountain 24

SOUTH ROYALTON — The Wildcats opened the contest with a 20-6 run to set the tone in a win over Green Mountain.

“The big thing for us tonight was rebounding,” WRV coach Tim Perreault said. “We talk a lot about boxing out and rebounding. We like to get the ball out and get running and you have to have rebounds to do that.”

Hannah White led the attack with 11 points. Toni Turner had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Chelsea Trask pulled down a team-high 11 boards. Sylvie Coltey had 10 points and Sarah Howe had eight. Ella Perreault added six points and seven rebounds.

Hanover 63, Kearsarge 28

NORTH SUTTON, N.H. — Sophomore Melissa Whitmore made four 3-pointers on her way to a team-high 16 points to help the Marauders take down the Cougars.

The win served as a tune up of sorts for Hanover (13-2 overall, 11-0 NHIAA) in advance of Friday night’s game at Hollis-Brookline (11-0).

Charlotte Johnson added 14 points and Maddie McCorkle had 13 for Hanover. Willa Parkins added eight points.

The Marauders opened the game on a 17-8 run and then sealed the win with an 18-1 run to open the second half.

Angelina Bigwood added 10 points and Reese Perry had nine points. Elliot Rupp finished with eight points. Karen Kapuscinski and Evelyn Page each had seven. The Jacks had 24 assists on their 31 field goals.

Windsor’s road gets tougher on Thursday when Fair Haven comes to town.

Lebanon 70, Milford 25

LEBANON — All 13 players on the Raiders varsity team scored at least a field goal in a blowout of the Spartans.

Rebecca Wright had 25 points in 10 minute of action for Lebanon (11-3 overall, 9-2 NHIAA).

Mid Vermont Christian 40

QUECHEE — The Mounties scored 19 points in the fourth quarter to complete a second-half comeback against the Eagles (9-4).

“They brought the intensity, we kind of did, but that fourth quarter did us in,” MVCS coach Chris Goodwin said. “Hopefully we bounce back. I imagine it’ll be a bump in the road and we’ll learn from this one.”

Hayley Goodwin led the Eagles with 18 points. Sydney Goodwin added seven points.

MVCS hosts Poultney on Wednesday.

Boys Basketball

Hanover 63, Milford 46

HANOVER — Charlie Adams (18 points) and Nolan Gantrish (13) carried the offensive load to help the Marauders beat the Spartans.

Hanover remains undefeated with the win at 12-0 overall, 10-0 in NHIAA play. Jai White added 10 points and Hank Pikus had seven for the Marauders.

“We had some big minutes from Nolan and Charlie, they led the way for us tonight. They both did a nice job,” Hanover coach Tim Winslow said.

The Marauders host Kearsarge on Wednesday night.

Unified Basketball

Laconia 36, Hanover 32

LACONIA, N.H. — The Marauders’ lack of height eventually proved the difference at the Sachems.

“They had a lot of height and got a lot of rebounds on us. We had a tough time getting rebounds,” Hanover coach Missie Rodriguez said. “Losing is tough, but everyone had a great time.”

Avery Hunnewell had a team-high 22 points for Hanover. Eli Weintraub added eight points. The Marauders (1-4) visit Keene on Feb. 10.


Dartmouth’s Thomas

HANOVER — Dartmouth junior Claire Thomas was chosen the EISA’s Alpine skier of the week on Monday for her efforts at last weekend’s Colby Carnival.

The Salt Lake City native helped Dartmouth place second as a team by scoring 87 points from her race results. Thomas grabbed her second career carnival win in the women’s giant slalom on Friday and followed that up by taking sixth in Saturday’s women’s slalom. The Big Green won the women’s Alpine events both days.

Dartmouth returns to Maine for the Bates Carnival this weekend.
