Milton lax falls to Harwood

By most measures, including 11 regular-season wins and a No. 1 seed in the Division II playoffs, it has been a successful campaign for the Yellowjacket boys lacrosse team. It took just a seven-minute stretch in the second quarter of the D-II semifinals last Tuesday for it to come to an end, as a visiting five-seed Harwood Union team that played much faster and deeper than its ranking pulled away for a 14-8 win. Down one early in the second quarter, the Highlanders scored six unanswered goals and eight of the final nine tallies going into the half as...

Milton tests BFA in tight Lake Division game

It’s not often a team can give up a 12-point lead and allow 43 points to an opposing player and still come away with a win. The Bobwhites (8-9) needed a little bit of luck to get away with both February 15 and extend their winning streak to seven games after dropping nine of their first 10. Milton senior Ryan Brown scored 43 points and pulled down five rebounds but BFA-St. Albans topped the Yellowjackets 73-68 in the Lake Division showdown. BFA led 34-22 with about three minutes left in the second quarter before Milton (7-9) came storming back...

Salary increases divide FWSU, teachers

FLETCHER — If the Franklin West Supervisory Union teachers union and school board are going to reach an agreement on a new contract, they’ll have to do it with one scheduled meeting left between the sides and a distance to fill in key negotiation points. On February 9 at Fletcher Elementary School, the sides were reluctant to move off their health care and salary offers in a three-year contract, and still need to reach consensus on the language in several key amendments of the master agreement. Currently, teachers are asking for a health care plan with a reimbursement account...
