CHESHIRE—There was no crazy comeback this time for the Cheshire softball team in a big game. A three-run first inning prevented that.
But that didn’t mean there weren’t tense moments for the Rams in their C…
St. Joseph completed an unbeaten regular season Friday with its 1-0 victory over Trumbull in the FCIAC championship game.

It was a much more straight forward week for the No. 1 team in the state. For the second week in a row No. 1 St. Joseph collected every single first-place vote to remain. The Cadets breezed through the comfortable part of their FCIAC schedule to improve to 18-0 this spring. St. Joseph is once […]

One week into the season and there was considerable shuffling inside and out of the GameTimeCT/Register Top 10 Poll. Masuk retains its position atop the standings behind a pair of steamrolling wins over FCIAC opposition, collecting 12 of 16 first-place votes. FCIAC rivals Trumbull and St. Joseph swap places after the Cadets were pushed to […]

GLASTONBURY — When E.O.

STORRS — While Kelly Pritchard’s knees might not have been shaking, there was no doubt that the precocious freshman pitcher was just a tad bit nervous when was called upon to record the final three outs in Friday’s Class LL quarterfinal game.

MERIDEN — E.O. Smith boys soccer coach John Blomstrann didn’t think there was any way his team could be shut out. Masuk proved him wrong.
