We live in a great area with a number of collegeslocated in our community. This weekend is a big weekend for the University of Vermont and their hockey and girls basketball teams. Both are in the playoffs with the hockey team in the final four of the Big East tournament and the girls in the National Invitational tournament where they just defeated Dartmouth last night.They now will advance to the next round. It is an exciting time for the College and our community. We live a small area and sports are extremely important to us. With that said, we support our local sports teams enthusiastically. What a thrill it has been over the last few years to see first the incredible success the girls program had and then the mens team when they beat Syracuse in the NCAA tournament. It was one of the biggest upsets in the history of the tournament. Yes we get worked up about it, and enjoy every minute of it, at least I do.I played numerous sports growing up and whenI attended St. Michael's College I played soccer. For the last ten years, I have coached baseball so you can see, athletics are an integral part of who I am. With that said, this is a going to hopefully be a great weekend for the Catamounts and all I've got to say is, Go Cats Go.
