Northern Connecticut Girls' Softball League


2002 SEASON SUMMARY



The Northern Connecticut Girls' Softball League had several composition changes from 2001. Bloomfield and Windsor entered our organization with teams in the U-16 league, increasing the number of member towns to sixteen. Enfield was unable to return in U-16; East Windsor combined with Ellington and Suffield with Somers. The twelve teams were formed into three 4-team divisions with Tolland, Simsbury and Bolton taking home the regular season trophies. West Hartford defeated Tolland 3-2 in an exciting U-16 tournament championship game.
The U-14 league gained two teams, as Simsbury and Suffield joined the seven returning teams from last year. Ellington, with an 11-2 record, finished in first place. Vernon successfully defended their U-14 tournament title with a 6-2 win over Enfield1 in the final.
Overall, NCGSL had a net gain of one team but total player registration decreased slightly (322) from 2001 (326).
