Hoop Dreamin' at UVM

The UVM men's basketball team played its final home game of the season on Sunday. Kids VT sponsored it for the second year in a row. Our staff hung out in the lobby of the Patrick Gymnasium before the game and at halftime, handing out copies of the March issue and signing up parents for our weekly e-newsletter, the Wee-Mail.

We added something new this year, too — a mini basketball game with 30-second shoot-outs that proved very popular with Cats fans of all ages. I snapped this pic of UVM's mascot, Rally, cheering on some of our players.

Sadly, the Cats lost the game in the final second. UVM had just tied up the score — and all the fans in the stands were on their feet, cheering — when Hartford's Nate Sikma hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer, putting the Hawks up 61-58. What a heartbreaker! The whole crowd deflated instantly.

There's a silver lining for a few lucky audience members, though. By signing up for the Wee-Mail and playing our mini b-ball game, Heather Young, Tyler Willard, Trey Smith and Jen Burt won four passes each to Jay Peak's Pump House Indoor Waterpark. Congratulations also to our high scorers, Makenna (23), Reese (29) and Griffin (32).

Hope the Cats have better luck in the playoffs!

That visit evolved into the area’s only week-long K-12 chess summer camp. Now entering our 5th year, past campers ranged from beginners to many VT state…(more)
