Northern Connecticut Girls' Softball League


2000 SEASON SUMMARY



The league structure and membership changed only slightly from the previous year. The number of teams, six U-14 and eight U-16, remained the same. Somers repeated as U-14 regular season winners over the same towns that were represented in 1999. East Windsor won the U-14 tournament, winning 5 out of 6 games played, after ending their regular season with a 4-0 week. In U-16, Newington did not return and Vernon was added, becoming the fourth town with teams in both age groups. The U-16 league was also separated into two 4-team divisions, North and South. Enfield and Vernon finished first in their divisions and South Windsor took home the U-16 tournament trophies after an exciting final against Vernon.
Player registration for our third season decreased to 220 from 231 in 1999.

The U-16 game began shortly after the conclusion of the U-14 game with All-Stars from the North Division versus All-Stars from the South Division. A South rally in the 9th inning fell just short as the North won 7-5. All participating players received medallions to commemorate this concluding event of the 2000 NCGSL season.
