Northern Connecticut Girls' Softball League


2001 SEASON SUMMARY



The Northern Connecticut Girls' Softball League underwent record growth for the 2001 season. Four new towns (Bolton, Manchester, Simsbury and West Hartford) entered the league, bringing our total to 14 member towns. The total number of teams increased from 14 to 20 and registered players rose to 326 from 220 in 2000. Ellington became the fifth member town to enter teams in both age groups. Five teams were added to the U-16 league; three new towns (Bolton, Simsbury and West Hartford) and two former U-14 teams (East Windsor and Tolland). The thirteen teams were divided into two divisions with Vernon and Enfield capturing their respective regular season titles. Simsbury emerged as victors in the U-16 league tournament, beating a tough Enfield team in the championship game. The U-14 league increased by one team as new entries Ellington, Enfield2 and Manchester replaced East Windsor and Tolland. South Windsor went undefeated to win the regular season trophies. Vernon narrowly defeated South Windsor in an exciting final to take the U-14 league tournament crown.
