• Defending champions: Bloomfield boys and girls.
• What to look for: Bloomfield enters as the defending champions, but it may be a tighter race this year for both the boys and girls. The Ridgefield boys come in as FCIAC champions, having edged out Danbury. Windsor, which won the Class L title, will challenge as well. On the girls’ side, distance runner Hannah DeBalsi will try and lead Staples to an Open title. The Wreckers won the Class LL title, but Tolland, Windsor, Darien, Wilbur Cross and Simsbury are all in the mix.
• You should know: Danae Rivers of Wilbur Cross has a chance to earn three gold medals. She’s one of the favorites to win the 800, 1,600 and set to run the anchor leg for the Governors’ 4×400 relay team, which is seeded third (3:55.92).
