Teams That Lost Players In Crash Decide To Practice

Oct 10, 2016

The boys and girls soccer teams from the Vermont high school that lost four of the five students killed when their car was hit by a wrong-way driver over the weekend decided to hold informal practices Monday.

Joe Yalicki,  the boys assistant soccer coach at Harwood Union High School, says a varsity game that had been scheduled for Monday was canceled, but the team wanted to get together.

Three of the five students played soccer.

Yalicki knew all five victims from the crash late Saturday night on Interstate 89 in Williston that killed four Harwood students and a girl who now attends school in New Hampshire.

Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin has ordered flags in the state to be lowered to half-staff until Thursday in honor of the students.
