…Unless you’re talking about Class S. Even then, it’s a stretch.
All but one of our local teams went down in Class LL last nite: St. Joseph, Fairfield Prep (hard, btw), Bassick (to Harding), Notre Dame-WH.
That’s not including Trinity Catholic as a local this time. We were using them to prove a point last time. Technically, they’re the Advocate’s baby.
Anyway, here’s the final four of Class LL:
No. 15 Harding vs. No. 3 Crosby, at CCSU Wednesday, 7
No. 4 Trinity Catholic vs. No. 2 Windsor, at NHAC Wednesday, 7
Elsewhere, Stratford defeated Sheehan and advanced to play (gasp) SWC rival Bethel in an interesting Class M semifinal at Kennedy.
Tonight in the ever intriguing (if not extremely skewed) Class S, we actually have a worthy opponent for Kolbe Cathedral when it faces Ansonia tonight at Bunnell.
Ansonia wasn’t exactly a juggernaut in the NVL, where it went 9-11 and lost two games by over 30 points. But in Class S, the 30 seed is suddenly one of the best teams in the tournament.
Ansonia won’t be a awed by allyoop dunks like Gilbert’s players were. But, honestly, it hasn’t cut through this bracket like Kolbe Cathedral has.
They’re still going down tonight as Kolbe Cathedral continues its magical (?) ride to the Class S final.
