LYNDONVILLE— It’s been a long journey for the 2016-2017 Lyndon Institute Vikings Girl’s Basketball team. The Lady Vikings, led by head coach Eric Berry, finished their season with a school-best 17-3 record, which earned them the second seed out of Vermont Division II Girl’s Basketball.
“It was a big accomplishment,” Berry said. “We had to go to U-32 in the last game of the regular season and pick up a big victory. That victory got us the number two seed and put us in the position that we’re in.”
