HOWLIN’ GOOD TIME Sunday’s Cheshire Dog Park Grand Opening and 2nd Annual K-9 Carnival was a howling good time. The beautiful weather, June 1, helped to bring out hundreds of people to the event on Waterbury Road, many with their dogs in tow. They were treated with puppy pampering stations, a multitude of vendors, K-9 demonstrations, disc games and more. “It was a fabulous day,” said Cheshire Dog Park member Jeanette K. Salfeety.

The town has received a 2014 Risk Management Achievement Award from the Connecticut Interlocal Risk Management Agency, the state’s leading municipal insurer. CIRMA gave out awards to 21 municipalities in six categories last month. Cheshire was recognized for long-term reductions in losses from workers’ compensation claims, the third time it has received the award. It is based on results over a 10-year period. Cheshire has cut workers’ compensation claim costs by 80 percent and its days lost from an annual average of 336 to zero over five years. Its total claims costs were 65 percent less than towns of similar size and demographics. The town’s effort “creates more efficient operations and ensures the delivery of vital public services,” CIRMA Vice See Award / Page 4

public building commission, said the lavatories in the concession building are “so disgusting” that many refuse to use them. The disparity between the new and original estimates has some councilors and building commission members blaming each other. Town Council Chairman See Costs / Page 5

On June 13-14, 2014, the 17th year of the Cheshire’s Relay for Life will be held at Cheshire High School. Currently, there are 49 teams signed up, with approximately 421 people. The Cheshire Citizen will introduce some of the people and faces behind the teams who make up the Relay as a reminder that cancer can affect anyone at any age. Cheshire Relay for Life Youth: “I was a Relay baby. Really. I was in a stroller, going around the track with my mother,” said CHS senior Samantha Welch. “My grandfather’s side of the family had breast cancer, and my grandmother had cancer. They all fought and survived.” As a captain for her team in Dodd, and then helping

“I was a Relay baby. Really. I was in a stroller, going around with my mother. My grandfather’s side of the family had cancer, and my grandmother had cancer. They all fought and survived.” Samantha Welch, Cheshire High School senior

to chair the Relay with her mother by the time of her CHS freshman year, Welch now steps up as Relay for Life Youth Coordinator. While she no longer has one specific team, Welch oversees about 40 youth teams, and “handles all things youth.” That includes mentoring youth groups, and answering questions. Two ambassadors who Welch works with are Shawn Germaine and Jess Kosciuk. In Germaine’s experience, she explains that her mother, sister and brother have been in the Relay. “They would join friends who had their own teams.” The CHS junior also has seen the affect cancer has had in her neighborhood. One neighbor who had skin cancer is doing well with treatment. Another, longtime neighbor became sick with Stage 4 lung cancer, and unfortunately did not survive. “She was like a second mother to me.” This past May was the one-year anniversary of her death. Only recently, yet another neighbor died of lung cancer. “It’s hit my family pretty hard lately.” Along with being an ambassador, she is a co-captain with Jess Kosciuk for team, Batman, The Cure for Kids. “It’s a good thing to do,” said Germaine of the event. “I be-

lieve in the charity.” Kosciuk is a newcomer when it comes to being in a Relay for Life team. However, the CHS junior has been to many Relay events since elementary school. She also has had cancer-related illnesses in her family, mainly blood cancers, such as leukemia. “My uncle was diagnosed last year and died in early March. I’ve been to Southington. I’ve volunteered in the past and that kind of got me wanting to do it, as well. I saw how cool it was.” Opening ceremonies, complete with color guard, kicks off the annual Relay for Life. Within the Relay, assorted activities keep the energy positive and keep teams going strong throughout the 24hour event. “We have youth events like the bachelor auction,” Welch said. “It’s freshman, sophomore, junior and senior boys ... we auction them off,” she said laughing. “It’s a huge hit. It’s so much fun.” There’s a midnight volleyball tournament in the East gym, held in memory of Cheshire’s Katherine Toce, an 11-year-old Highland Elementary School student who died of cancer in 2001. “We’re expecting big a big crowd. It’s huge. We are excited,” Welch See Relay / Page 6

President David Demchak said in a statement. Town Manager Michael Milone attributed Cheshire’s success in reducing losses to a combination of factors, including the work of the town’s risk management team, training and replacement of equipment. Local unions also have safety committees that work with the Board of Education, Milone said. Milone cited the replacement of walk-behind snow-removal machines with ones that have enclosed cabs as an example of upgrading to safer equipment. Milone said a “culture of

When a hospice patient requires an acute inpatient stay, Masonicare is able to provide compassionate, skilled care within our Acute Care Hospital Unit. Our emphasis is on comfort — both for the patient and their family.

Privacy is further enhanced in a peaceful atmosphere where spiritual, emotional, social and clinical support are coordinated through an interdisciplinary team of professionals.

safety has been created,” partially due to the work-related death of a public works employee in 1997. “It’s in the back of people’s minds that all you need to do is be careless once, and you may never get the chance to be careless again,” he said. “It galvanized people about the importance of safety.” CIRMA started the risk management awards in 1980 “as a way of celebrating the work that our members do to reduce loss and their day-today activities to make workplaces safer,” Field said. “We’re celebrating the accidents that don’t happen.” jgebeau@record-journal.com (203) 317-2242 Twitter: @JeffGebeauRJ

Costs The Council voted 6 to 3 at its May 13 meeting to table bidding on the revised locker room plan until July. The opposing sides also dispute the cost figures each cite for the projects. Talbot said the budget for the concession building was intentionally set below the $350,000 threshold that would trigger a referendum. Slocum accused commissioners of “glorifying” new cost projections for individual projects in a “transparent” attempt to revive plans for a field house structure designed to address the locker room and concession stand building issues, as well as create a solution to the school’s storage problems and provide other amenities. The school currently stores items for athletics, band, theater and graduation in nine portable trailers. Field house proponents have argued that it makes more sense to remedy the problems with a comprehensive solution instead of isolated fixes.

“Let’s let the people have residents get?” Building commission members raised this point again at their say,” he said. “Why jgebeau@record-journal.com a meeting this month, noting should nine people sitting in (203) 317-2242 that the revised cost of the a room decide what 29,000 Twitter: JeffGebeauRJ locker room and concession building work is more than $1.3 million, not that far off from a $2 million estimate for the field house.

Timothy P. Slocum and Councilor James Sima suggested that the building commission has been “dragging its feet” on the concession stand project the council delegated in the fall. Slocum also said the commission has taken “three years to move from point A to point B” on the locker room renovation. Voters authorized $500,000 for the renovation at a 2009 referendum. Meriden-based BL Companies was hired to design it in 2011. The council added $50,000 to its budget in 2012. Commissioner Mark Nash said the council is to blame for the delays, calling some members “backwards and obstructionist” with “no desire to look down the road.” The best way to respond to the increased estimates is to put the work out to bid, Talbot said. “How can we really know how much money they’ll cost if we don’t go out to bid?” he said.

Cheshire’s homes have two bedrooms or less, Fink added. The state average is 42 percent. Towns also are trying to accommodate retiring baby boomers who are seeking to “downsize” their residences, Fink said. One benefit of inclusionary zoning is that municipalities with a “wider array of hous-

ing options and therefore a wider array people tend to retain property values,” he said. Fink said many Connecticut towns that are demographically similar to Cheshire have instituted or are exploring inclusionary zoning. He cited Ridgefield, Brookfield, Haddam, Clinton and

fellow students when “one of their own gets this horrible disease,” is something that has left a huge impression on Welch. In her freshman year, Welch was introduced to “a very nice girl by the name of Theresa Fitzpatrick.” Theresa had cancer. “Now normally you don’t see high school kids wanting to do a lot,” said Welch. It was different though when it came to supporting Theresa, she said. On the day of the Relay that year, Welch said every student in the school was present and each wore Theresa’s team shirt: a purple, tie-dye T-shirt, emblazoned with, Theresa’s Battleship. Fitzpatrick lost her fight to cancer in June 2013, a year after graduating. However, teams still enter the Relay under her team name and in her honor. Theresa is just one example of how much heart so many have for this event, said Welch. “It’s amazing to see all these high school students come together for Relay,” she said. “It’s crazy, but this disease has brought the Cheshire community so much closer than I would ever think.” To find out more about Cheshire’s Relay for Life, go online to www. cheshirerelay.org.

Fink said the change is primarily being driven by towns trying to provide affordable housing to their young people, along with workers such as police officers, teachers and nurses. “If we want to keep our sons and daughters here, they’re going to need some kind of housing,” he said.

Guilford. “A lot of towns are looking to create that kind of housing where residents are OK with it,” which is usually the town center, he said. Commission member Diane Visconti asked Fink to provide an example of a town comparable to Cheshire that has had success with inclusionary zoning. Fink cited Old Saybrook, which created one such zone and is adding a second. Fink said the key to implementing inclusionary zoning is having a “townwide conversation” about it beforehand. He said many residents misunderstand the kind of people it is intended to serve. “People think it’s drug dealers and gang members,” instead

of hard-working professionals of moderate means, he said. Fink told commission members to “take as long as you need to” as they talk with residents and consider whether inclusionary zoning is right for Cheshire. “The process is now asking you to be proactive and take a look at what people want,” as well as what the town needs, he said.

We want to share that factual history.” Calabro says the actors are responsible for projecting these stories to the audience. “Someone can present it forcefully or someone can present it wistfully,” said Calabro. “The emotional part of it is where the actor’s real talent will show. We hope they will get a sense of the person’s life and how to best present their personality and character.” Muholland said there will be three rehearsals before the “Spirits Alive Tour.” “This is important because we really want to raise awareness of Cheshire’s history and preserve the cemetery. We want to entertain and teach those on the tour,” says Muholland.

The actors will be the main focus of the tour. “Every actor will be portraying someone buried in the cemetery,” said Stephen Muholland. “We researched personal stories of their lives from the times they lived in. The actors, through these people, will tell their stories.” The Cheshire Historical Society drafted scripts for the actors. The scripts are based off of historical books found in Cheshire. According to Calabro, the book “Landmarks of Old Cheshire” played a major part in forming the scripts. “When you’re working with historical facts, you don’t want to veer too far off the path,” said Calabro. “People have specific histories of what they did in the course of

Opinion Veterans History Project a Library of Congress treasure It’s easy to spend hours perusing the Library of Congress website at loc.gov. The collections of American life are amazing and include audio, video, photograph and document archives. There are files that range from Look magazine to World War II Military Situation Maps. There’s Stars and Stripes: The American Soldiers’ Newspaper of World War I, 1918-1919. There are topics from technology to art, to history to immigration and native peoples. This Memorial Day, as we take a moment to reflect, we’d like to draw your attention to several selections in the American Memory project which are available online. One recent audio presentation is the Sept. 11, 2001 Documentary Project. The library notes that: more than 60 years ago, the American Folklife Center mounted a similar effort to document national sentiment in 1941 following the attack on Pearl Harbor: After the Day of Infamy: “Man-on-theStreet” Interviews Following the Attack on Pearl Harbor. (This audio tape also is available online.) The Sept. 11 documentary “captures the heartfelt reactions, eyewitness accounts, and diverse opinions of Americans and others in the months that followed

the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Airlines Flight 93. Patriotism and unity mixed with sadness, anger, and insecurity are common themes expressed in this online presentation of almost 200 audio and video interviews, 45 graphic items, and 21 written narratives. The day after the attacks, the American Folklife Center called upon the nation’s folklorists and ethnographers to collect, record, and document America’s reaction. A sampling of the material collected through this effort was used to create the Sept. 11, 2001, Documentary Project. This collection captures the voices of a diverse ethnic, socioeconomic, and political cross-section of America during trying times and serves as a historical and cultural resource for future generations. The Veterans History Project of the American Folklife Center collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war. The Project collects first-hand accounts of U.S. Veterans from the following wars: World War I (1914-1920); World War II

(1939-1946); Korean War (1950-1955); Vietnam War (1961-1975); Persian Gulf War (1990-1995); Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts (2001-present). In addition, those U.S. citizen civilians who were actively involved in supporting war efforts (such as war industry workers, USO workers, flight instructors, medical volunteers, etcetera) are also invited to share their valuable stories. The United States Congress created the Veterans History Project in 2000 and it is an ongoing project. Its mission is to collect, preserve and make accessible the first-hand remembrances of America’s war veterans from WWI through the current conflicts, so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand the realities of war.

Congress American Folklife Center is primarily an oral history program that collects and preserves the firsthand interviews of America’s wartime veterans. VHP relies on volunteers, both individuals and organizations, throughout the nation to contribute veterans’ stories to VHP. In addition to audio- and video-recorded interviews, VHP accepts memoirs and collections of original photographs, letters, diaries, maps and other historical documents from World War I through current conflicts. Many of our participants choose to interview friends or family members that have served in the military. However, local veterans service organizations, a local or regional Department of Veterans Affairs facility, a senior center or a retirement community are good places to locate veterans who might be interested in sharing their story. To learn more email vohp@loc.gov or call (888) 371-5848. The library also encourages visits to VHP’s Information Center, which is located in Room LM-109 of the Madison Building (101 Independence Ave, SE, Washington, DC 20540). It is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (EST), Monday through Friday. The Library of Congress is closed on all federal holidays. Please contact VHP prior to your visit to ensure VHP staff are available (email vohp@ loc.gov or telephone (888) 371-5848). Currently, the Veterans History Project is highlighting the Aleutian Campaign, the “unknown campaign” of World War II. The following is from a March 18 press release from the VHP: The history of World War II is populated with battles and place names that have become legendary: Omaha Beach, Guadalcanal and Okinawa. Less familiar are Adak, Attu and Kiska. They are part of the story

of the Aleutian Campaign, in which thousands of American soldiers fought against Japanese forces that had invaded islands off the coast of Alaska, which was then an American territory. It is these battlegrounds — and the stories of those who served there — that the Veterans History Project brings to light in the latest installment of the “Experiencing War” web series, available at www.loc.gov/vets. Beginning in June 1942 and lasting through July 1943, American forces struggled to take control of Attu and Kiska. Not only did they confront the Japanese, but they also battled another enemy: the unforgiving climate of the islands. Despite the dramatic environment in which they served, and their successful defense of American soil, these soldiers’ stories have largely disappeared from the collective memory of the war. Currently, the Veterans History Project holds more than 500 stories of veterans of the Aleutian Campaign and hopes to add many more to the collection in order to best tell the story of World War II’s “unknown campaign.” With this feature, VHP highlights the stories of a handful of veterans who took part in the Aleutian Campaign. They include Dean Galles, who sustained bayonet injuries during hand-tohand combat with the Japanese, and Clifton Davis, who describes the unique blizzards known as “willowaws” that were common in the Aleutians. Also featured are the stories of Seabee Earl Long, who discovered a love of reading while on the long journey to the Aleutians, and Howard Bernstein, a pilot who flew bombing missions out of Attu Island.

Panel recommends extending APEX technology contract By Jeff Gebeau The Cheshire Citizen

The Town Council Technology Study Group voted unanimously May 28 to recommend that the council approve a two-year extension of Cheshire’s contract with APEX Technology Group, its technology consultant. The group was assembled to formulate a five-year technology plan for the town. APEX was originally contracted to design the plan but later took over management of the town’s day-to-day technological operations from another consultant. The town and Board of Education combine to pay APEX $240,000 per year under the existing agreement, which will not change. The proposed extension does contain a provision for additional payment to APEX in the event of an emergency that requires it to provide extra hours of service for a prolonged period, such as a protracted power outage.

public information off icer, endorsed APEX’s work. Whenever the town makes a specific technology-related request, the company’s answer is always ‘We’ll find a way,’ she said. Prior to the vote, APEX Vice President Anthony Verrill detailed for group members the projects the firm has been working on since November, as well as those it plans to undertake between now and the summer of 2016. Verrill cited upgrades to the town website and wastewater treatment plant network, implementation of a new state-mandated video recording system at the police station and the removal of Windows XP from Town Hall computers as among APEX’s focuses since the fall. This year, the company will concentrate on implementing a new $185,000 phone system in Cheshire schools and installing a new door access control system at Town Hall and the police and fire departments. By the summer of 2016, its goals are to expand the phone system to municipal offices and the door access system to remaining municipal locations, along with upgrading police department software and systems, he said. He also wants to draft an update to the original fiveyear plan. Verill suggested modifying APEX’s recommended twoyear $965,000 capital budget request that the group approved last year. He suggested moving some projects forward and consolidating the two-year request into a one-year, $527,000 proposal. Councilors Patti Flynn-Harris and Peter Talbot said they would present the proposed consolidation to the council when it begins work on the capital budget later in the summer.

Softball: It’s all — and nothing More sock for Schock By Ted Moynihan

Special to The Citizen

CHESHIRE — The Cheshire softball team continued its offensive heroics with an 11-hit attack that featured four home runs en route to a 10-0 romp over visiting Hamden in a CIAC Class LL first-round game Monday afternoon. The victory extended the No. 8 Rams’ overall record to 16-6 and kept them at home for a second-round game against No. 9 Fairfield Ludlowe (16-5). The 25th seeded Green Dragons closed their season with a 10-11 mark. Not only did Cheshire welcome back pitcher Mackenzie Juodaitis to the fold after a period on the injured list, but the junior right-hander responded to the challenge with a no-hitter. The only thing that stood

between Juodaitis and a perfect game were a hit batter and three walks. Joudaitis struck out eight. “We talked about the postseason and how you’ve got to work the black and paint the corners,” Cheshire coach Kristine Drust said. “We were waiting for good pitches to hit. We’ve been working on some solid, solid fundamentals when it comes to hitting.” Leadoff hitter BryAnna McIntosh got the Rams on the scoreboard early. The Rams shortstop blasted a home run to deep left field. Cheshire added a run in the home half of the second inning when Alexa DiLeo lined a leadoff single through the shortstop hole, before giving way to a pinch-runner. Maggie O’Reilly’s singled off the glove of losing pitcher Leah Rowe and McIntosh followed with a sacrifice fly ball to

right field. Casey Harding made it 3-0 in the bottom of the fourth with a home run to left center field. One inning later Olivia Odermatt made it 4-0 with a home run to left field. “That’s a good team,” losing coach Peter Zoppi said. “They’re real strong hitting-wise, from No.1 through No.9. We got the ball up a little bit and they made us pay for it.” Leading 3-0, Cheshire broke the game wide open with a seven-run sixth inning that featured a walk, four singles, a hit batter and the home team’s fourth home run of the game. This one was off the bat of right fielder Sara Como. That was all the offense Juodaitis needed en route to her no-hit, no-run performance. As a team, Cheshire now has 23 home runs on the season.

Volleyball: Rams firmly rule SCC roost By Paul Rosano

Special to The Citizen

CHESHIRE — The Cheshire boys volleyball team was in total control throughout its match with Xavier May 29. Well, almost total control. After the first half of the first game, when the Rams got settled, they truly dominated on their way to a 3-0 SCC Tournament championship victory over the Falcons at Cheshire High. Game scores were 25-16, 25-13 and 25-21. It was the fourth consecutive SCC title for Cheshire (17-3) and f ifth overall. Cheshire senior Ted Li, who had 11 kills, five blocks, two digs and an ace, was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. “We came out a little slow, a little tentative, but once we got a rhythm going, a pace that we wanted, we did a really nice job,” Cheshire head coach Sue Bavone said. “One of the good things: We didn’t miss a lot of serves tonight. We’ve been missing a

lot of serves in the past. That was a plus. In the first game, once we started to put some pace on the serve, use the serve as a weapon instead of just getting it in play, we did much better. The rest of the game went off the serve.” Xavier (12-7) led early in the first game except for ties at 1 and 15. After the second tie, Cheshire ripped off eight points in a row behind the serving of setter Trenton Hager (25 assists, two kills, one block, one ace). The Rams put together four consecutive kills from 18-15 to 21-15, with one apiece from Patrick Lindner and Greg Zane sandwiched around two in a row by Lee. The game ended at 25-16 on an unforced Xavier error following another Lindner kill. Cheshire made good use of the double-block, particularly in Game 2, when the combination of Zane and Li made three doubles in a row for points that provided a 5-1 lead. Li had all five of his blocks in the second game, while Zane had four of his five.

“We’re not the biggest team, but these guys have good timing and these guys are pretty athletic,” Bavone said. “They’ve played a lot of volleyball, so they have a good sense of what’s happening on the other side of the court. We know who we are, so we know how to play who we are.” Xavier cut it to 10-7 in that second game, but Cheshire opened up leads of as many as eight points four times, nine three times and 10 twice on its way to a 25-13 win. Xavier made Game 3 the closest of the night by hanging with Cheshire and getting to within one point at 21-20. “We played hard tonight; Cheshire’s a very good team,” Xavier head coach John Post said. “They earned it tonight. Every time we did make a run, they had an answer for it.” Cheshire won four of the last five points in Game 3 to close it out 25-21. “The pace got a little slow on (Xavier’s) side (in Game See SCC / Page 18

CHESHIRE — Cheshire got itself into trouble of its own making with two errors in the second inning against Ridgefield Monday afternoon. The Rams’ bats made up for those miscues and had the last word as No. 9 Cheshire defeated No. 24 Ridgefield 12-5 in the first round of the CIAC Class LL baseball tournament at Burt Levanthal Field. Cheshire (15-7) was to travel to No. 8 Glastonbury (15-6) for a second-round game Tuesday. On Monday, senior centerf ielder Dan Schock led the way for the Rams with three hits, including two home runs, three RBI and three runs scored as Cheshire had 11 hits and scored 10 times in the last three innings with fourrun innings in the fifth and sixth. As huge as his two homers were — one solo and one a two-run shot — perhaps Schock’s biggest hit was a single in the fifth. With the score tied at 4, Schock’s base hit drove home Ryan Pierpont (three runs scored). Wes Robertson scored on Ridgefield centerfielder Jeremy Gordon’s errant throw to the plate. Schock made a heads-up play by taking second and third on a head-first slide. He scored one batter later on a single by Cooper Mrowka (2-for-3, two RBI, two runs scored) to give Cheshire a 7-4 lead. “I saw the throw, I knew it was going to go high, so I knew I was going to take second,” Schock said. “And then I realized no one was at third and I know I have pretty decent speed, so I was going to give it a shot. And luckily it worked out.” M rowka s co re d o n a single by Adam vonFischer (two hits) to complete Cheshire’s seven-run

comeback after the Rams fell behind 4-1 thanks to their disastrous second inning. Cheshire starter Kyle Waldron zipped through the first inning, but was victimized by a throwing error by Robertson trying to pick off John Boscia at first, which sent the lead runner Colin Berlardinelli (single) to third. Belardinelli scored on second baseman Tommy Savino’s throwing error to the plate and Boscia was knocked in by Wright Lindgren’s single to make it 2-1. Ridgefield (10-11) added two more on a sacrifice fly by starting pitcher Sam Sarath and a base hit by leadoff hitter Liam Smith. “We were imploding there. (Waldron) threw very well,” Cheshire head coach Bill Mrowka said. “That causes him to throw 30 pitches in an inning, but he battled. He did well and we were able to obviously get some big hits when we needed to.” Waldron gave up one more run in the seventh while picking up the complete game victory. Between the third and sixth, he gave up two hits and faced 13 batters. Cheshire tacked on four in the sixth on Schock’s two-run homer and pinch-hitter Richard Mills’ two-run triple. Matt Hickey had a two-run double in the fourth. Schock’s two dingers give him a school record eight for the season and 11 for his career, which ties him with his coach, Bill Mrowka, who set the mark more than 30 years ago. “It means a lot seeing as sophomore year, I had only one home run,” Schock said of the career record. “It’s pretty cool because the big guy (Bill Mrowka) had the record, so I want to beat it for a little bragging rights.” Said Bill Mrowka: “I tell you, with these bats that’s pretty impressive.”

Rams re-Lax, repeat

Rams Notes Baseball Xavier 11, Cheshire 6: Big innings were the order of the day, six-run jobs for both Cheshire and Xavier in Middletown. The No. 4 Falcons, however, proved more resilient, scoring five more times on their way to a SCC Tournament quarterfinal victory over the No. 5 Rams at Palmer Field. Cheshire starter Ethan Lonardelli retired the first six batters he faced. Then C.J. Caprio started Xavier’s big inning with a lead-off single in the third. By the time the Falcons (16-5) were done, they had scored six times on five hits and one error. Caprio scored on a single by Laurence Hill (3-for-4, triple, three RBI), Chris Cardi scored with the bases loaded on a walk to Will Garrity and Alex Parkos drove in two with a double. Alex Pia hit a run-scoring single and Rich Downey hit a sacrifice fly to left field to complete the scoring. Girls lacrosse Cheshire 18, Amity 8: No. 4 seed Amity Regional scored eight goals in this SCC Tournament semifinal matchup against No. 1 Cheshire. The bad news for the Lady Spartans? Cheshire’s Madeline Levy single-handedly scored eight goals herself, leading the Rams to a convincing win at Alumni Field at the Maclary Athletic Complex. Cheshire (12-5) held a slim 6-5 advantage at the end of the first half, but Amity (107) was able to wrestle away the lead at the onset of the second frame when goals from Eleanor Henn and Sarah Turner made it 7-6 with 22:28 remaining. Cheshire advanced to the

SCC championship game at West Haven’s Ken Strong Stadium. Boys volleyball Cheshire 3, Amity 0: Despite its lack of size, Cheshire swept Amity in a Southern Connecticut Conference semifinal round contest. With three players listed at 6-feet 3-inches and another at 6-8, the visiting Spartans enjoyed a sizeable height advantage over the host Rams. Despite their lack of height, the top-seeded Rams still managed to dominate play at the net, led by Patrick Lindner with 12 kills and six blocks. Lindner combined with Greg Zane, who chipped in with five kills and seven blocks, to dominate the taller Amity front line. Meanwhile, setter Trenton Hager had 32 assists and three digs. Libero Eric Cusano had seven digs to lead the defensive effort. The Rams dispatched the fourth-seeded Spartans by game scores of 25-17, 2511 and 25-19. Amity played Cheshire to a 3-2 score the first time the teams met this season. Track and field S CC c h a m p i o n s h i p : The Cheshire girls were led by senior Selina Sampieri, who not only defended her SCC pole vault crown, but broke her own meet record

in the event. She cleared 11 feet, surpassing the 10-6 she nailed a year ago. The Cheshire boys were led by Chibueze Njoko. The CCSU-bound thrower was second in the shot put (476) and second in the discus (153-7). Also for the Rams, Tyler Post was second in the 200 (22.96) and Mark Fusco was second to Cobb in the 800 (1:58.95). Amity swept the boys and girls team championships at the SCC meet, held in Wallingford. Boys golf S CC c h a m p i o n s h i p : Hand won the team title and North Haven’s Ramsey Kong the individual crown at the annual conference tournament at Racebrook Country Club in Orange. Kong shot a 1-under par 70 to take the medal. Hand, led by 75s from Brian Carlson and Tommy Pellett, carded a collective 310 to best runner-up Amity by six strokes. Cheshire, the lone area team to qualify as a unit, placed sixth at 329. Chris Simione was low man for the Rams with a 79. Jake Ecke and Tom Arisco both came in at 80. Girls tennis New Canaan 6, Cheshire 1: Though seeded No. 20, the Rams of New Canaan are the defending state Class L champs, and they took it to the Rams of Cheshire, who were seeded No. 13. Cheshire’s lone win came at No. 2 singles, where Sara Bruce recorded a 6-4, 6-2 final. Cheshire, which successfully defended its SCC Division II title this spring, closed its season at 13-5. New Canaan improved to 10-7 and advanced to face No. 4 Amity.

WEST HAVEN — The Cheshire girls lacrosse team has been here before. Four years in a row, in fact, which means the seniors know no different. Winning the SCC Tournament championship, that is. May 29, the Rams rolled to their fourth straight conference title and seventh in program history with a 13-7 victory over Hand-Madison at West Haven’s Ken Strong Stadium. Cheshire did it by dominating the second half 8-3, blowing open a game that stood 5-4 at halftime. The Rams, two days removed from their semifinal win over Amity, were simply far stronger down the stretch than the Tigers, who had just beaten Guilford in their semifinal the night before. “They played a tough game last night and we knew if we could keep it close, we could pull away at the end,” said Cheshire coach Dan Warburton. Senior Emma Farrel, who

followed up a four-goal, six-assist effort against Amity with three goals and three assists against Hand, was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. “Emma played patient and controlled. She was very smart this tournament with no turnovers,” Warburton noted. “She did all the things we needed her to do and more.” For all her scoring, Farrel said it was Cheshire’s defense that made the difference in the tournament final. “We won this game because we had patience on offense and we held a great fast-break team down,” Farrel said. “The defense had an amazing game.” Alexa Carbone made four saves in net for Cheshire. Olivia Larson had a teamhigh four goals. Maddy Levy, who had eight goals against Amity, zipped in two on the Tigers. With the win, Cheshire improved to 13-5 and now moves on to the CIAC Tournament.

3) and we got kind of sucked into that slow game. A lot of really weird balls came over,” Bavone said. “I took a timeout and said ‘This is like a pinball game. Let’s try to settle down and play some clean volleyball.’ And I think we did. We started to push the pace a little bit and we got back on track.” Li led throughout for Cheshire, particularly at the net. “Ted’s awesome,” Bavone said. “He did a nice job. He can do a little bit of every-

thing for us. He was All-State last year as our setter and this year we put him on the right side to be a hitter for us and he’s just been phenomenal.” Referring to Li dedicating his MVP award to the entire team, Bavone added, “He fills up the stat sheet every game and he’s humble as you can see.” Cheshire’s Colin Haensel added eight kills, six blocks and one ace. Xavier senior captain Kevin Berger had 25 assists, Andre Zumerchik had seven kills and 10 digs. John Babon threw down seven kills.

will embrace his leadership and visions.” As parish minister, Romans is ultimately the leader of the school, along with the church, even though school administration runs its dayto-day operations. “In the eyes of the archdiocese, I’m responsible for what happens in the school,” he said. His

objective is to “work collaboratively with the principal and vice-principal to provide a safe center of faith-filled learning.” “He’s a pastor of souls,” said Archbishop Leonard P. Blair, explaining one of Romans’ primary roles in the See Pastor / Page 19
