Mike Sansone (LHP) – Notre Dame (West Haven) Baseball
The junior lefty was perfect for five innings against Masuk (Monroe) Wednesday, but he allowed his only blemish of the game in the sixth—a hit. He struck out 10 and walked no one as Notre Dame toppled the Panthers 3-0. Unfortunately for the Green Knights, North Haven knocked them out of the playoffs in the quarterfinal round, Saturday.
Haydn Gourley (RHP) – St. Joseph (Trumbull) Baseball
He’s a freshman! Gourley hurled a no-hitter and struck out 14 Wednesday as St. Joseph dumped Plainfield from the CIAC Class M playoffs, 2-0. The Cadets, a No. 34 seed that had to win a qualifier to make states, will meet Waterford Tuesday for a shot at playing in the state finals.
Abby Geshwind (RHP) – Hand (Madison) Softball
Daniel Hand throttled Naugatuck 10-0 to open the Class L state tournament last Tuesday. But the junior righty barely needed all of that run support as she was perfect on the mound. Geshwind struck out 14 in the perfect game. Hand made it to the quarters where it was eliminated by Pomperaug Regional Friday.
Molly Hale (3B) – Northwestern Regional Softball
The sophomore pushed the Highlanders into the state semifinals with a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of 7th, Friday. Northwestern knocked off Stonington 3-2 to advance to its first CIAC semifinal since 1999. Hale also homered in the game. She was 3-for-3.
Matt Baugher (A) – Greenwich Boys Lacrosse
The senior’s fourth goal of Wednesday’s first round CIAC 1st Round match-up with Staples (Westport) won the game. And it beat the final horn with one second remaining. Baugher scored four goals and assisted on another two in the 12-11 win. Greenwich’s season ended Saturday with a 17-6 loss against unbeaten Darien.
Evan Federowicz (A) – New Milford Boys Lacrosse
The senior attackmen helped extend his high school career—and his team’s season—by putting up a monster effort in an 11-10 upset of No. 2 South Windsor for No. 15 New Milford Wednesday. Federowicz scored six goals in the game and set-up the game-winner. On Saturday, New Milford’s season finished with a 15-1 loss against No. 7 Cheshire.
