Whereas, since February 2, 1993, the team has not sustained a home court loss, and

Whereas, the team has repeatedly won the Central Valley League’s northern divisional title and triumphantly clinched the Vermont Division IV championship in 1994, 1995 and 1998, and was one of two finalists in 2000, only to lose the championship game after a most valiant effort on the Barre Auditorium basketball court to their formidable opponents, the Danville High School Indians, and

Whereas, without doubt, two of the most spectacular players, among the cavalcade of outstanding Canaan Eagles, have been seniors Chantal McKeage and Marissa Domanico, and

Whereas, each of these superb young women has displayed remarkable talent on the basketball court, and

Whereas, Chantal and Marissa’s offensive proficiency has been permanently enshrined in the school’s athletic history by virtue of their each scoring in excess of 1,000 points over their four-year careers as Canaan girls’ basketball Eagles, and

Whereas, Chantal completed the 2000 championship game with an impressive personal tally of 1,066 points, and

Whereas, Marissa concluded her tenure in an Eagle’s uniform, having scored an unbelievable 1,362 career points, and
