They started the season there and ended there. It took Masuk five weeks and a second straight Class L championship to get back to the top of pile, but a 26-1 record was enough for the Panthers to claim the No. 1 spot in the GameTimeCT Top 10 Poll for a second straight time at […]
SOUTH WINDSOR — Her day started with a phenomenal accomplishment, and a field trip to Holiday Hill to boot.
The rest didn’t go too bad, either.
South Windsor senior Maria Hanchuk added state…
Maria Hanchuk of South Windsor High School as its 2018-19 Gatorade Connecticut Softball Player of the Year this morning by the organization. Hanchuk is the first softball player from South Windsor to win the award. The 5-foot-5 senior lefty led the Bobcats to a 20-0 record; she posted an 18-0 record with a 0.49 ERA […]
Cheshire trailed perennial SCC power Amity 3-1 in the bottom of the seventh inning of the SCC Championship game and appeared destined to bookend their SCC season with losses to the Spartans. But the Rams rallied with three runs and won it on Matt Downing’s single to right, which ultimately brought Matt Costello home with […]
St. Joseph completed an unbeaten regular season Friday with its 1-0 victory over Trumbull in the FCIAC championship game. The No. 1-ranked and top-seeded Cadets now take a 35-game win streak into the state playoffs where they will look to win back-to-back state championships. St. Joseph could, of course, be challenged by SWC champion and […]
The the latest Top 10 GameTimeCT softball poll remained largely unchanged as conference championship season got underway. The top six — St. Joseph, Masuk, Trumbull, South Windsor, Cheshire and North Haven — remained in their places as all survived the week without a loss. All 10 teams from last week remained in the poll. NOTEBOOK: […]
With about a week remaining before baseball conference tournament pairings are finalized and get underway, fascinating results across the state have created another shakeup in the latest Top 10 poll. Cheshire is still No. 1, but the Rams were the only team to stay put while carnage ruled across the rest of the poll. The […]
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 […]
For the first time in 51 weeks, we have a new No. 1 softball team. Thanks to a couple of shut-down pitching performances by Payton Doiron and a home run from Charlee Horton (vs. Trumbull) and Paige Hunter (vs. Masuk), St. Joseph assumed the top spot in the latest GameTimeCT Top 10 Softball Poll. The […]
For the third-consecutive week, we have a new No. 1. Fairfield Prep led off the preseason poll No. 1. Last week, blazing hot Ridgefield claimed the mantle. This week’s new No. 1 is undefeated Ledyard. The Colonels have been on everybody’s radar since the preseason. They debuted at No. 7 and jumped to No. 3 […]
Ridgefield, which survived an ill-fated attempt to dry its field with gasoline-fueled fire (but now must wait for an estimated $50,000 cleanup) and moved the game to Woodbridge where it defeated perennial power Amity, 5-4, is the new No. 1 in the GameTimeCT Top 10 baseball poll as the second, full week of the season […]
Fairfield Prep spent a majority of last season No. 1, and looked primed to win its first baseball championship. But the dream, as if often does in the CIAC postseason, ended in an 10-inning heartbreaker, 5-4, to Cheshire, which went on to capture the Class LL title. Though the Jesuits graduated versatile Will Lucas and […]

SOUTH WINDSOR — The intention was to put the ball in the hands of his teammates, emphasizing his arm instead of his legs as the season launched Friday afternoon. But Raquan Tompkins couldn’t help but tuck the ball and bolt. A swath of open turf and the East Hartford junior was off. “When I see […]

WINDSOR – Despite losing by double-digits to Windsor on Wednesday afternoon, no one is counting out Wethersfield’s baseball team. “I think we have a lot of talent,” Wethersfield star center fielder Jimmy Sullivan said. “When we play well we can be a very tough team to beat.” The thing is, the Eagles, who came into […]
GREENWICH — One play, one touchdown. That’s how Sunday’s CIAC Class LL Tournament semifinal-round game began for the Greenwich High School football team, which wasted little time in taking the lead on a South Windsor squad that aims to p…
