A senior-laden Chazy baseball team lived up to its expectations by capturing the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference Division I championship in 2013, and a big reason for the Eagles’ success was the play of Kyle Bisonette, who was chosen as the division’s Most Valuable Player by the coaches in the league.
Three of Bisonette’s teammates, Nathan Reynolds, Craig Botten and Jacob Kennedy, were named to the Division I All-Star Team.
