Shelton can clinch top spot

#ctbase -- With No. 8 Shelton's 7-3 SCC interdivision win over No. 6 Notre Dame-West Haven on Wednesday, the Gaels put themselves in position to clinch the top seed in the conference tournament.

The Gaels are 14-3 and the Green Knights are 15-4. Shelton has won six straight and has to defeat Sheehan and Wilbur Cross  to close out the week in order to claim the top spot, accordng to Shelton coach Scott Gura.

"We'll avoid Notre Dame and Amity until the finals which is huge," Gura said.

Ryan Testani had a three-run double and Ryan Daiss got the win on the mound. For Daiss, this was his biggest win of the season.

"People were questioning the fact that he pitched against some sub par teams," Gura said. "He went out there and pitched extremely well today."
