Thetford takes second state title in three years


Thetford Academy extends its reign over Div. III girls’ basketball.

The Panthers hoisted the hardware for the second time in three years with a 42-36 win over No. 8 Oxbow in the Div. III state championship Saturday at Barre Auditorium.

The No. 2 Panthers orchestrated a strong start behind the play of Kiana Johnson and Casey McVeagh, and ultimately outlasted the Olympians down the stretch.

Thetford won it all in its sixth-straight title game appearance.
