Hartford bass team skips trip

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — Upper Valley high school sports programs have seen scores of state and regional competition opportunities wiped out by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now one has lost an event at the national level.

Hartford High School’s nascent bass fishing team was to go to La Crosse, Wis., for The Bass Federation’s high school national championship next month. Given the pandemic situation and various travel difficulties arising from it, Hartford coach Aron Tomlinson last week decided to call off the Hurricanes’ trip.
