CASTLETON — Balance. Coaches love the word. It’s about contributions from many different places on the basketball court and the Castleton women’s basketball team took it to a new level in Wednesday’s 78-42 rout of Little East Conference rival Keene State.

CHESTER — It was just like being back home in the driveway in Middletown Springs. Poultney’s big post player Molly Hier kissed the ball of the glass to the tune of 16 points to lead the Poultney girls basketball team to a 37-30 victory over Green Mountain in Nason Gym.

When Castleton University’s baseball team opens the season on Feb. 13 with a doubleheader at Cabrini University in Randnor, Pennsylvania, Rutland’s Reece de Castro will have a new home. The Rutland High and Rutland Post 31 graduate is being shifted from second base to third base this season.

WEST RUTLAND — Motivation can be a powerful force. The West Rutland girls basketball team saw “MSJ” on those uniforms and that was enough. The Golden Horde had a 20-5 lead by the end of the first quarter and a 40-7 at the half on the way to a 66-28 victory over Mount St. Joseph.
