Shauna Kehoe- Rocky Hill (softball): Kehoe made her high school debut on the mound, pitching a complete game, allowing only three hits and striking out four as Rocky Hill defeated Maloney 6-4. Head coach Tyler Catlin called Kehoe’s opening day start a “gusty performance on the hill”. The sophomore sensation followed it up with another complete game in a 6-2 victory at Manchester as the Terriers finished the week 2-0.
Zach Nakonechny- Newington (Baseball): Nakonechny was the opening-day starter, striking out nine and allowing only two hits as Newington won 8-3 at South Windsor last Monday. The senior was also outstanding from the plate last week, going 2-3 with an RBI vs South Windsor, and then duplicating that feat in a 12-2 home-opening victory over Enfield.
Lily Kenney- Cromwell (Softball): Kenney won both games from the mound last week, pitching a no-hitter and shutting out East Hampton on Monday and then allowing only two hits and striking out 12 vs Morgan on Wednesday. The sophomore was also spectacular from the plate, connecting on five hits for seven RBIs and three runs in the two wins.
Tino Gagliardi- Cromwell (Baseball): Gagliardi drove in eight runs on four hits, including a grand slam in the fifth inning, as Cromwell defeated Morgan 15-11 last Wednesday. The senior captain helped right the ship for a Panthers team that dropped the first two games.
Cooper Moreau- Wethersfield (Lacrosse): Moreau showed his resiliency in goal, stopping 21 of 28 shots to help Wethersfield boys lacrosse pick up the program’s first official win as a varsity program. The junior allowed only one goal after the first quarter, as the Eagles rallied from a 6-1 deficit to beat Granby 8-7 at WHS on April 10. Head coach Bruce Cutkomp praised Moreau’s efforts, saying, “his leadership was instrumental in the team’s confidence being reinvigorated and turn the game around.”
