Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
Happy New Year! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend safely welcomed in 2022. It was nice to have a couple days to sleep in and not blog, but I am excited to get back to it this morning as Border Country Sports heads into the second year.
Today is Monday of course, and that means it is time for my Monday Morning Hot List for this week. A look at who was "Hot" in high school sports this week.
--I begin with the two players who earned the Border Country Sports Bennington Martens POTW awards this week. Kylee Humiston of Argyle led the Scots to a non-league win over Bishop Gibbons with a 30 point effort. Humiston knocked down six treys to record 18 of her points.
--Andre Printy was out boys POTW. Printy helped MSJ stay unbeaten at 5-0 with a 34 point game in the Mounties win over Springfield. Printy also had a 17 points game in an MSJ win over Brattleboro.
--Warrensburg's Stevie Schloss had a stellar couple of games as he led the Burghers to a pair of wins in the George Khoury Christmas Tournament. Khoury is one of the great coaches ever to come out of our area and he sure would have been proud of Schloss's performance in the tourney that is named after him. Schloss had 28 points in an opening round win over Johnsburg-Minerva. Next, Schloss scored 21 points to lead Warrensburg to a 54-42 win over Loudonville Christian in the championship game. Schloss is only a sophomore.
--While I am on the subject of Warrensburg, the Burghers wrestling team won 4 out of 5 matches at the Slater Duals in Fair Haven on New Year's Eve. Warrensburg's only loss was to Vermont powerhouse Mount Anthony. The Burgers defeated Granville, Oneonta, Springfield and Fair Haven.
--At that same tournament in Fair Haven Granville's Jaxon Torres and Quinn Johnson had a fantastic tournament. Torres went 5-0 in the 113 pound class at the event. Torres won two matches by pin, two by decison and another via a forfeit. Johnson also went 5-0 at the event. Three by decision and two by technical fall.
--Staying with wrestling for a bit Fair Haven had a strong meet at the Middlebury Duals last week. The Slaters defeated Harwood/ CVU 36-16, Colchester 36-30 and Otter Valley 39-6. Fair Haven recorded several wins by pin at the event. Tristan Hyatt at 138, Tyler Terrian at 182 and Colton DeLong 220 and 282 all had three pins, while Lincoln Wilcox at 120, Trey Lee at 126 and Paityn DeLong at 145 had two pins each.
--Proctor continued their winning streak in girls basketball and Maggie McKearin once again had a big game. McKearin had 25 points in a dominating 84-27 win for the Phantoms over Arlington.
--Peyton Guay continued to have a nice start to the season for West Rutland girls basketball last week. Guay scored 21 points in the Golden Horde's win over Mid-Vermont Christian. Guay also had 16 points in a win over Otter Valley.
--Salem's Amber Terry practically brought the Generals from behind single-handedly in a win over Granville in ovetime. Salem trailed heading to the fourth quarter and Terry only had two points. Terry however scored 22 of Salem's 31 points in the final stanza at OT to lead the Generals to a come from behind win. Terry finished the game with 24 points.
