cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — The Hotchkiss School held its 16th annual regatta on Sunday, Oct. 22. No, it wasn’t on one of the local lakes or ponds. No other teams participated. In fact, only a core group of first-year science students took part in the competition — which was held in the school’s swimming pool. And featured boats made out of cardboard.
The annual regatta was created as a way to teach science students about buoyancy. Each team of about three students built a boat and then launched it in the pool — with two passengers — to see if it could make it to the bulkhead in the middle of the pool.

After intercepting a Jake Sutterlin (36 carries, 176 yards, two touchdowns) pass attempt with 6:14 left in the game, Enfield went to work at their own 40-yard line. The Raiders were held to short gains on first and second down, and it looked as if the Mountaineers’ bend-but-don’t-break defense was coming back to life.
