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 […]
BRISTOL — Many around the state were speculating who was going to start for East Catholic in the Class M semifinals after the game was rained out on Tuesday. Would it be future MLB draft pick Frank Mozzicato, who only threw 74 pitches on Saturday? Or would it be the sophomore, TJ Winn who […]
Nearly two weeks ago, the SCC softball tournament kicked off with a surprising upset when third-seeded East Haven was eliminated.
Eleven days later, the Yellow Jackets have roared back.
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 […]
TORRINGTON – When Naugatuck track coach Ralph Roper “peeled back the onion” he wasn’t surprised to find a Naugatuck Valley League title for his boys’ team. “That is what you hope a good team will do,” Roper said after Naugatuck added the postseason crown to a jewel of a 12-0 regular season in the NVL […]
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 […]
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 […]
WATERFORD — Maddie Burrows is batting .667 (8-12) with two home runs, four doubles, nine RBIs and nine runs scored.

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 […]
After nearly two years on the shelf, baseball is back! And so is the GameTimeCT Top 10 poll. With little information to go on because of the lost 2020 season, voters were content to pitch their ballots for the usual suspects in this year’s preseason rankings. Voting in any preseason poll is an inexact science […]

If there is a high school hockey season in Connecticut, it appears it will go off without the Eastern Connecticut Eagles. “Unfortunately, since we are a co-op and the ECC has decided that there will be no winter co-op sports, we will not be allowed to participate even if the CIAC puts something together,” Eagles […]
