A Look At Class L

Wow. Class L is loaded.

Top-seeded Northwest Catholic may meet with No. 9 Hillhouse, the defending champion, in the quarterfinals.

No. 5 Pomperaug and No. 4 Berlin is also a possible quarterfinal game.

No. 6 Bacon Academy (defending Class M champion) loses just once in the regular season and its reward? A possible matchup with SCC champion No. 11 Branford in the second round. Then the winner of that game gets Abigail Corning and No. 3 Wethersfield. That’s all before the semifinals.

No. 16 Bunnell faces No. 17 Weaver and scoring machine Latiqua Patterson in the opening round.

No. 13 Lyman Hall draws No. 20 Fermi and may face Berlin in the second round. The Redcoats reached the Class M final last year, but are still without sharpshooter Alexys Vazquez. Lyman Hall also without its top post player in Jen Ruys.

E.O. Smith draws the No. 2 seed. The Panthers are still undefeated, but play top-seeded Northwest Catholic tonight for the CCC title.

No. 15 Platt has one of the field’s top players in Damika Martinez. The Panthers will face. No. 18 Wilby in their opening game.

NVL powerhouse Torrington earns the No. 7 seed. The Red Raiders one of the best guards in Class L in Sarah Royals.

No one in the state may be playing better than Branford’s Courtney Schissler. The Hornets open with SCC foe No. 22 Guilford.

There are so many contenders in this field. But if Hillhouse can get by Northwest Catholic, the Academics are the pick to repeat as Class L champs.
