BERLIN — Amid all the hauling weights downfield, bench-pressing 185 pounds and shoving a truck several dozen yards down the parking lot at Sage Park, there was the agility course. Run through nine tires. Run around and between five upturned garbage pails. Hop sideways over several pads. Run straightaway over several more. “I love that,” […]
BERLIN — There’s one month to the start of practice and another month to the first Connecticut high school football games since 2019.
A strange and disappointing 2020 is behind the state’s teams. They’ve go…

The Masuk softball team, once again, finishes as No. 1 team in the state. The Panthers were the preseason No. 1 and maintained the position throughout the 2021 season. Masuk — which has won 36-consecutive games — finished as the only undefeated team in the state at 24-0 and won its fourth-consecutive SWC title and […]

STRATFORD – It rained. It thundered and there were even a few strokes of lightning but yet they played on. Southington softball defeated Hall, 8-2, Thursday night in a rainy and muddy CIAC Class LL State Tournament semifinal at Deluca Hall of Fame Field to advance to the team’s third Class LL final in […]
SOUTHINGTON – Two weeks ago, Southington softball second baseman Alison Rembish fractured her hand during practice when a ball bounced awkwardly and hit her hand. She missed the Central Connecticut Conference tournament and wasn’t sure if she would be able to play in the CIAC Class LL softball tournament. “I wanted to play in the […]
Conference tournaments are over and we head into the first CIAC tournaments in two years on Tuesday. And with the state postseason comes the penultimate GameTimeCT Top 10 poll. We’ll return with the final rankings in two weeks. North Branford made its Top 10 debut after winning the Shoreline Conference, knocking out East Haven following […]
The poll is heating up alongside the recent weather, with some of the biggest changes it has seen since opening week. Waterford’s first loss of the year to Stonington created a shift at the top in which Masuk gained four first place votes, while St. Joseph moved up to number two. Waterford falls […]
It seems as if the Top 10 teams have firmly solidified themselves over the weeks, as no teams dropped out for a second week in a row. The top three and bottom three teams held positioning, but a shake-up in the middle took place following Cheshire’s first loss of the season. Masuk, Waterford and St. […]
After a relatively pedestrian week, most of the Top 10 teams held position. But last week may have been just the calm before the storm. The top four undefeated teams have held position since the April 27 poll. Masuk, Waterford, St. Joseph and Cheshire have each maintained at least one first place vote. Only two […]
SOUTHINGTON — After striking out a batter to end the sixth inning, East Catholic pitcher Frank Mozzicato turned around and waved to the section of Southington students up the first base line Monday night. The fans had been yelling at Mozzicato all game — and he loved it. “Just hearing the chirps, it fuels […]
Another week in the books means another week with Masuk on top. Many teams moved around within the Top 10 this week, with one newcomer. Woodland announced its Top 10 debut by defeating then-No. 6 Seymour 3-0 last week behind a 19-strikeout performance by Sammy Sosnovich. Seymour, previously ranked sixth, drops out after taking losses […]
Hand took over at No. 1 last week and was first put to the test by Shelton before having to come back from down 11 in the fifth inning against West Haven with Danny Weinstein winning it with a walk-off home run 13-12. Not much movement in the poll this week, except for Staples dropping […]
Masuk maintained the No. 1 spot and held onto its nine first-place votes from a week ago with three overwhelming victories. Notre Dame-Fairfield took the No. 10 slot, thanks to a 7-0 record and three shutout victories last week. Freshman Pitcher Judy Tarczali has been lights out for the Lancers with two no-hitters. MacQuarrie […]

Masuk stays No. 1 in the poll, picking up seven additional first-place votes after a 5-0 start to the season. Waterford held onto the second place spot and received three first place votes, as it did in the preseason poll. St. Joseph jumped East Haven despite both teams getting off to 4-0 starts. They both […]
It has been almost two years but softball is back, and the GameTimeCT Top 10 Poll along with it. There are many unknowns entering this season after a lost 2020 spring, but that hasn’t stopped the voters from gathering whatever information they could to rank the top teams in 2021. But, like every other sports […]

I am not going to sugarcoat this in any way, we didn’t have a football season this fall. I know it sucked and wasn’t what everyone wanted. That said, we still wanted to recognize some of the best players in state and tell them this: we wish we could have seen them play this […]
