Updated Divisions 2018/2019

1 comment

Class L got a bit harder with New London (up from Class M in prior year) and Simsbury (down from LL in prior year) joining Class L with several state open placers moving into class L including T. Finn 2nd @ 106 (Simsbury), N. Powell-Keyton 4th @ 106 (New London), and J. Commander 3rd @ 195 (New London).


Overall, Class L added 5 teams (Simsbury, New London, Rham, Cheshire, Bunnell) and lost 3 teams (Amity, Hall, Masuk), so a net increase in teams by 2 in class L.


Class LL added 2 teams (Amity & Hall) and lost 2 teams (Simsbury and Cheshire). No net change in the number of schools.


Class M and S had many changes, most significant was Ledyard to Class M from Class S. Suffield and Windsor Locks look to be a coop this year and move to Class M. Overall, Class M looks to pick up one net school with 4 schools transferring in (Ledyard, Masuk, Goodwin Tech, Suffield/Windsor Locks) and 3 schools out (New London, Rham, Bunnell). Class S seems to be losing 4 schools (Ledyard, Suffield, Windsor Locks, Goodwin Tech) and not adding any. H. Adams from Suffield placed 6th @ 145 pounds at the Ct Open last year, so he will make some noise in class M.


Did I miss anything? Thoughts anyone? Seems like Class L & M are more competitive and Class LL & S less so. All divisions are posted at the link below and are subject to change.

West Haven had no team last year, and from what I can tell does not this year either, Same goes for Kennedy in L? So LL has 24 teams and L 26? Either way L is tougher with New London, and Simsbury than last year.
