The CIAC State Baseball and Softball Tournaments have reached the Semifinal Stage.
Several games were played on Sunday to complete the field. I travelled out to Madison to see Guilford and Hand battle in a Quarterfinal game to see which team would move to the Semifinals.
In the end, the Tigers prevailed 4-1. Abby Geshwind was the winning pitcher, allowing 4 hits and striking out 8. Christina Coric had 2 hits, an rbi, and a run scored, and Caroline O'Connor had a double and 2 rbis for Hand. Coric was the Willy George DeMaio Top Dog of the Game.
Amanda King had a single and double for Guilford.
Other Sunday Softball Scores:
Class M: Granby 3 Seymour 2
