REGION – Soccer season has ended for Vermont high schools and here’s a few soccer statistics.
In Division I, number one CVU girls were undefeated for the third year in a row and have won the D-1 State Championship eight of the last nine years. With this win, it makes them 19 state soccer championships, which, according to the National Federation Record books, is top in the nation. They beat number 3 Colchester, 4-1.
In Division II, number nine Rice girls won their first state championship since a 1999 Div. I crown. They beat number seven Harwood, 2-1.
In Division III, number one Thetford girls won their third straight Div. III championship and their fourth overall. They played number two Vergennes, 6-1.
In Division IV, number one Proctor girls won their eighth overall title. They were playing in their ninth straight title game. They shut out number three Rivendell, 6-1.
In Division I, number one CVU boys were undefeated for the second year in a row and won their 19th State Soccer Championship, matching Proctor boys for the most boys’ soccer titles in state history. The Vermont schools are tied for second in the nation, according to the National Federation Record books. CVU beat number six Mount Mansfield, 3-0.
In Division II, number one Stowe boys moved up to D-II this year after winning the last seven D-III crowns, a state record. Counting a 1957 title in D-I, their total is 13 state soccer titles. They shut out number two Middlebury, 2-0.
In Division III, number four Green Mountain boys won their first soccer title in program history. They beat number seven Mill River 4-3 in overtime.
In Division IV, number one Twin Valley boys won their fourth soccer title in a win against number three Arlington, 4-1.
Here is something for you to wrap your brain around – CVU girls and boys total 38 championships – in just one sport. Also, little Proctor girls and boys total 27 championships – in that same sport. That is quite a high bar to set for the rest of the schools in the state.
