The varsity girls soccer team won their last home game of the season after a season-long streak of losses. The 3-0 win v.

On Tuesday, the girls lost 0-1 to Lamoille dropping them to 1-12 for the season. The Panthers will end regular season at Randolph on Friday (4:00 p.m.).
In cross country, the girls earned 4th overall (out of 7) in last week’s Connecticut Valley Conference. Competing with the minimum five runners, this was an impressive performance v. some big teams.
