Class M Breakdown


Berkshire League champion Lewis Mills earns the No. 1 seed. The top-seed may have some trouble with No. 16 Foran. If the Lions are to hold ace Brian Ward for Lewis Mills, Foran looks to be set up for nice run in this field.

A hard-hitting Montville team will be a dangerous opponent at No. 4. Its seeding does not do this team justice, therefore No. 12 St. Joseph is technically a sleeper and should make a deep run.

Haddam-Killingworth gets the No. 2 seed. The Cougars have been finding different ways to win all season and will have to continue do so in the second round against possibly No. 15 Woodland.

NVL powerhouse Holy Cross is No. 7. Look for No. 23 Bacon Academy to upset No. 10 Northwestern if ace David Mahoney takes the mound for the Bobcats. Ellington has won seven of its last eight and are No. 3 in this field. Ellington should coast to the semifinals.

No. 6 Waterford gets a good draw, as it faces O'Brien Tech in the first round. That means Waterford could save ace Colin O'Keefe for a potential second round game against East Catholic.

Champion: The ECC is always strong, so the pick is Montville. The Indians have a loaded offense and solid pitching.
Here is the Class M bracket.
