    Hand actually played in Bristol Friday as well: http://touch.courant.com/#section/2266/article/p2p-80434817/.

    I know that there are probably too many games to cover them all, so some local coverage from the teams Hand played so far in the tournament. Maybe Gametime can put in links to coverage from other sources like you are able to do during football season

    Stamford Advocate covered the second round : http://www.stamfordadvocate.com/default/article/Stamford-softball-loses-at-Hand-5526460.php.

    Westport-News had first round coverage: http://www.westport-news.com/default/article/Staples-softball-puts-up-a-good-showing-but-loses-5523861.php

      It’s a good idea. We’d like to link everywhere we can if we haven’t covered something personally. Football is simpler, since it’s once a week. Tougher to get links from everywhere every day without someone devoting some time to the practice. We will make attempts.

        Sean, Thanks to all your efforts and to all those covering high school sports.

        All those who follow the high school scene really appreciate it, especially when it comes to the non “high profile” sports. Maybe all of us who look for coverage on our teams should help out more by posting links to stories when we find them, rather than complaining like we often can do.

        Keep up the great work!
