The puck drops on another University of Vermont hockey season in three weeks. Catamount hoops tips off shortly after.
That makes this a perfect time to launch the “On Campus” blog to complement The Burlington Free Press’ college sports coverage.
I’m heading into my fourth year on the UVM basketball beat; long-time Catamount hockey writer Ted Ryan is ready to chronicle another season; and we’re anxious to pass along news, insight and commentary about the Catamounts on the blog.
The Free Press staffers will also use this space to highlight sports other than hockey and basketball — at UVM as well as at colleges around the state, like St. Michael’s, Middlebury and Norwich. In addition, we’ll keep you informed about local athletes who are excelling at out-of-state colleges.
As always, we encourage reader feedback. Hope you enjoy.
