A Look At Class LL

Led by St. John’s-bound Keylantra Langley, Lauralton Hall gets the No. 1 seed in this bracket. The Crusaders did not get a friendly draw. No. 16 Glastonbury is no slouch and may be a tough game for the Crusaders in the second round. No. 9 Mercy and No. 8 Stamford both get first-round byes and will the winner could face the Crusaders in the quarterfinals.

A Class LL finalist last year, No. 4 Career draws a bye as well. The Panthers get the winner of No. 13 Hamden and No. 20 New Britain.

No. 5 Holy Cross gets a bye. No. 12 Danbury draws No. 21 Sacred Heart Academy. The Pacers have upset a few teams during the regular season, but may have a tough time with Danbury’s Casey Smith inside.

No. 2 St. Joseph is happy to have top scorer Michelle Gorman back after she missed a few weeks with an illness. Wilbur Cross reached the semifinals as the No. 13 seed last year. The Governors have an outside chance as the No. 18 seed this year. If Cross can get by No. 18 East Catholic, it gets the Cadets in the second round.

No. 3 Norwich Free Academy played perhaps the toughest non-conference schedule to prepare for the state tournament. For what? The Wildcats could probably play without Kastine Evans and reach the semifinals.

Don’t know if it will happen because of the Crusaders’ draw, but Evans and Langley would be a great matchup in the title game.

The safe bet in this field is NFA to repeat.
