Pink Zone initiative unites rivals on court By Julie Sopchak The Southington Citizen

Kennedy and DePaolo Middle Schools clashed again for their traditional rivalry match. But this time around, the fight wasn’t centered around two middle school girls’ basketball teams, but rather the fight against breast cancer. The game was carried on as a Pink Zone event, which are part of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Pink Zone initiative. Teams hold fundraisers and wear pink for a scheduled game and donate the funds to breast cancer research. This particular Pink Zone event on Feb. 4 was held to benefit the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, which is part of the Jimmy V Fund and the WBCA.

DePaolo girls basketball coach Val DePaolo is a member of the WBCA, and also played basketball at the collegiate level, so she is familiar with this type of event. She said she thought it would be a great idea for the middle school to take part in this. “I played at Boston University, and all the colleges tend to do a ‘pink game,’ usually in February, and you see them they’re wearing pink,” she said. “Obviously we can’t do that, but we kind of do it on our own scale.” Her team sported pink shoelaces and pink hair ribbons, since pink jerseys weren’t really an option. In addition, the girls decorated and customized their own pink T-shirts with their names and numbers and othSee Pink, page 8

What people will remember when reflecting on the life of Dominic “Dom” D’Angelo, who passed away last Saturday at the age of 87, won’t be the number of wins he had as the head Southington High football coach for 21 seasons — 113 — or his tenure as the athletic director at the high school from 1962-1987, helping bring the school from tiny farm town to suburban metropolis, and it won’t be the fact that he was a standout athlete at then Lewis High and in college at Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia. No, what they will remember first, before all else, is

that he was simply a terrific guy, with great character, who tried to make everyone around him a better person — no more, no less. “Dom was a unique guy. Easy going, nice guy who loved the kids and loved being around them,” said long-

time friend John Fontana, who also coached baseball during the same era D’Angelo was roaming the football sidelines. D’Angelo began to leave his mark as a mentor in the

After story, bobcat saga continues By Robin Lee Michel The Southington Citizen

Photo by John Notar-Francesco

Pawprints and photographs are evidence a bobcat roamed a local yard. Francesco took a series of photographs and even had enough time to retrieve his more powerful zoom lens. “It was a gorgeous animal.” He has also taken photographs of other wild animals, including a bear that had taken down his bird feeder to eat the food inside. Notar-Francesco said the multiple sightings over the years may have been of the same bobcat although the coloring was different, which may be explained by the different times of year he has seen it, he said. He thought the animal he photographed Jan. 8 was possibly a female and maybe weighed 60 pounds, which is a larger weight estimate

than that given by Paul Rego, wildlife biologist based at Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area in Burlington. Rego is an employee of the state Department of Environmental Protection. Ann Dyer, a professional national award-winning photographer who owns Photo Expressions by Ann Dyer, said she spotted a bobcat several summers ago in her Vicki Lane yard off Hart Street. At the time she was upstairs in her home so she yelled to her husband to take a look, which he did. Ironically, she

Earlier this month, The Southington Citizen printed a story about a bobcat being spotted Jan. 6 in a Ciccio Road homeowner’s yard. Since it was published, several other Southington residents called the newspaper to report they, too, have seen a bobcat. John Notar-Francesco, of Southington, took several photographs on Jan. 8 at noon. One of the photos is shown on the Town of Southington website www.southington.org . “I first spotted him in August 2007 running across the yard,” he said. Previously he saw an animal — which he now realizes was a bobcat — in the rear of his property and it was gone in an instant. “If you make any sound he bolts,” Notar-Francesco said. Last February, he saw the feline standing behind shrubs. “This time I opened the door and it actually sat down and stared at me. I took my time,” he said. “It seemed to be interested in something under the snow bank.” For five minutes, Notar-

Two arrests were made at Southington High School on Thursday morning, Feb. 10, during a “free air sniff ” conducted by Southington Police Department’s K-9 units. A free air sniff is when police bring search dogs to a particular site to search for drugs by smell. The searches were conducted at the high school, ALTA, and DePaolo and Kennedy middle schools. No arrests were made at the other three schools. Police Sgt. Lowell DePalma said the last time a free air sniff was conducted was in October. He said no arrests were made during that session. “We do them periodically,” he said. “We work pretty well with the school system and it’s one of those things that we can call for them, or the

school can call for them, or in this particular case, we haven’t been there in a while, so we went up to do it that day.” While the school administrations are aware the police will be coming for a search, the presence is unannounced to the students. Arrested on Thursday

The rugged terrain in Southington provides a habitat bobcats like, according to DEP information. In July 2003, Plainville resident Charles Madigan surprised a bobcat hidden in a drainpipe and it attacked

him. He was able to fight it off after sustaining scratches and bites. Plainville police detective Gary Miller reported to the scene and shot it. He took a photograph as proof. The DEP reports bobcats are reclusive and usually do not attack humans, however, this bobcat had rabies it was later determined. Madigan had to undergo rabies treatment. Rego told the New York Times in 2003 “I think I

would classify this as an isolated case.” If a resident spots a bobcat, call Rego at Sessions Woods, (860) 675-8130 or visit the state DEP website www.ct.gov/dep .

Window contractor plans to ‘pay it forward’ through contest By Julie Sopchak The Southington Citizen

There are a lot of things that can be contagious: yawns, nasty colds, smiles and even good deeds. And it seems that J.C. Tonnotti Window Company has caught the “giving bug” by planning its first Pay It Forward event of donating new windows to someone whose house is in need. “We did it last year in conjunction with another company, and we felt like after seeing the results of what we accomplished, we felt that it was very beneficial to help somebody, or a family that is

in need of something that is a very costly item that typically they’re not going to be able to afford,” said Joe Tonnotti, owner of the window company. “Just the gratification of what we see at the end result is a real genuine feeling. To see the people, and they’re crying, and they’re appreciative, so that’s something that makes us all feel good.” The event Tonnotti is referring to was called Giving from the Heart, and it was hosted by Lachance Roofing, of Bristol. Owned by Jay Lachance, the roofing contractors put a new roof over the heads of a Terryville

family and asked Tonnotti to put in the windows. “We did the windows and we volunteered our day and donated all the windows for the family. We had such a wonderful time doing it and it was such a great event, that Joe decided they would like to hold and host a similar event here in Southington,” said J.C. Tonnotti office manager Trish Gibson. “So that’s what we’re working on, and it’s going to be our first annual Pay It Forward event to coincide with the national Pay It Forward.” Pay It Forward is a nationSee Pay, page 19 Citizen photo by Julie Sopchak

Zone Continued from page 8 members’ parents. Also, $280 was raised during the day from students donating $1 to have the privilege of wearing pajama pants for the day, and a raffle was held at the game for a large gift basket. “Normally they can’t wear pajamas,” said Lori Paterson, one of the mothers operating the bake sale table. “So we raised $280 from the students doing the Pajama Day.” Pajama Day was a noticeable success, with several students at the game sporting their comfortable bed wear in the bleachers. DePaolo said this might be

the first middle school girls’ basketball Pink Zone event in this area, but she couldn’t verify that. “That’s what a lot of people were saying,” she said. “It’s just a nice thing to do, so I just thought for the middle school it’s great. They raised a lot of money at the school and with the raffle and the bake sale. “I’d love to do it every year,” she added. The game itself was an exciting one, with DePaolo being edged by Kennedy by one point, 33-32, in an overtime loss. DePaolo seemed to be robbed of the win when a layup attempt with less than six seconds to go, spun around the rim, appeared to be going through the basket, and then spun right back out.

Mentor Continued from page 1

to represent Southington in its inaugural Hall of Fame class. D’Angelo, humble as ever, was shocked when he heard the news, but was honored because it reminded him of the kids and all those wonderful memories. Most poignantly, current Southington girls basketball coach and captain of the football team in D’Angelo’s final year at the helm, Mike Forgione, who was there on Hall of Fame induction night to help D’Angelo to the stage,

said at the end of the evening, as they went to say goodbye, D’Angelo said to Forgione, “Mike, I’ll never forget you.” Ironically, it’s Southington

that will never forget Coach Dom. Obituary on page 16. Richie Rathsack contributed to this story

1950s when he joined forces with the YMCA as Southington’s director. Current executive director of the YMCA John Meyers said D’Angelo had a rich history at the YMCA and was really involved with the development of the young men. Meyers even referred to him as the “Pied Piper.” “I heard wonderful things about what he did for youth development, especially for what he did for the boys,” Meyers said. One of D’Angelo’s many great achievements was the development of the Southington Midget Football program, which grew rapidly until it became its own entity. Similarly, D’Angelo developed a basketball program for boys to participate in and all the while, he followed a simple, but powerful message: “They always said building boys is better than mending men,” Meyers remembered, meaning, if the

job is done to develop boys at a young age, there is a better chance they’ll turn out to be exceptional men when they’re older. “He really embraced that whole philosophy,” Meyers said. D’Angelo also carried the YMCA torch in regards to the idea that for those kids who can’t afford the YMCA, he’d find a way to get them in — an open-door policy is what Meyers called it, a policy that continues to ring true today. “His legacy is certainly to the kids of this community. To me it was always how he treated the youngsters. There are not too many like him around,” Fontana said. As an athletic figure, the numbers speak for themselves — National High School Coach of the Year for the Eastern United States in 1972; Northeastern States Coach of the Year in 1973. But that’s all stuff for plaques, the impact on those that came in to contact with D’Angelo will forever be his legacy — one that will never be lost, get rusty or be forgotten. This past November, D’Angelo was one of four coaches

Kin for the Early Learning Guidelines Project to begin this January. Her leadership kept the ECCS moving forward through some critical periods, and I look forward to continuing to work with her in her new role as Education Committee chair,” said Krista Pringle, ECCS Coordinator. Dent is the owner/director of Cheshire Country Day School, a childcare center serving children ages six months to six years. She has a master of business administration and a master of science in education with a focus on early childhood education. Prior to moving to Connecticut, Dent taught kindergarten and first grade at PS. 160 in the Bronx, New York. Dent said, “I became active in the ECCS because of my strong belief that all children should be nurtured and supported in their natural curiosity and their desire to make sense of the world through active exploration. As co-chair I hope to continue this work by reaching out to the Southington community and making sure that all of us that impact the lives of children are doing everything we can to ensure that all of our children enter school ready to learn.” Slimak has been involved in Early Childhood Development for 15 years, most recently as a home daycare provider. “As the education chairperson, the ECCS has offered workshops to parents and providers with behaviorists, nutritionists, and educators from Southington. I am looking forward to expanding on these important programs through my role as cochair,” Slimak said.

Adelphia Hinkley “Billie” Killian, 90, died peacefully Feb. 11, 2011, at Bristol Hospital after a lengthy illness. She had been a resident at Sheriden Woods the last three years. She was preceded by her husband of 51 years, William O. Killian. She was a loving wife and mother, who found comfort in the everyday pleasures of a simple life. She loved her Lord and was devoted to her family. She worked for New Departure before raising her family. After her three children were grown, she worked at The Bristol Public Library, where she thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the public until her retirement. She joined Immanuel Lutheran Church after her marriage believing that one common expression of faith was key to the spiritual life of her family. Time proved her correct. She rarely missed a Sunday church service or sitting in the back pew. Her favorite hymn was “In the Garden” and she memorized the 23rd

CitizenOpinion Open Letter to the Community

Superintendent provides update on 2010-11 school calendar Joseph V. Erardi Jr. Special to The Citizen

This letter serves to update everyone with additional infor mation pertaining to the close of the 2010-11 school year. On Thursday, Feb. 10, I reported to Erardi the Southington Board of Education that the last day of school is scheduled for Thursday, June 23, 2011. The February vacation will remain as published. As an agenda item at the next board of education

meeting on Thursday, March 10, the board will set the graduation date for the Class of 2011. They will also discuss lost school time throughout the winter and how that will impact the 181st day of school. I plan to recommend the following: If we do not have any further loss of school days, I will recommend Thursday, June 23 last day of school and the same date for graduation. If we have one additional day of “no school,” I will recommend Friday, June 24 last day of school and the same date for graduation. If we have two additional days of “no school,” I will recommend Monday, June 27

last day of school and a Friday, June 24 graduation date. If we have three or more “no school” days, I will recommend that the board consider a shortened April vacation. The above recommendations will serve as a starting point for discussion with the Board of Education. I will keep the staff and community updated as we move to close out a very difficult winter season. Feel free to contact my office at (860) 628-3202 if you have any questions or concerns regarding the close of the 2010-11 school year. Joseph V. Erardi Jr. is the Southington Superintendent of Schools.

Police make more arrests during alcohol compliance checks

After police conducted alcohol compliance checks for the second time in as many months, six of the eight businesses visited sold alcohol to the underage person. The compliance checks were conducted Jan. 28 at eight stores that sell liquor. In December, seven of 14 businesses visited sold alcohol to the underage person. “It is frustrating,” said Sgt. Lowell DePalma, police spokesman. DePalma, along with members of the Southington Townwide Effort to Promote Success have been conducting merchant education programs at all the businesses within the last year. The program was to help business owners feel more comfortable being able to identify underage customers. The employees working at the restaurant was arrested and charged with sale of alcohol to minors. Each is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court Feb. 7, DePalma said. Each of the businesses has been referred to the state liquor commission for alcohol permit review and/or action. The businesses that sold alcohol to a minor were Wineland Spirits, Country Farms Convenience Store, West Side Spirits, Bridge Package Store, Little Red Store and Dairy Farms. Wineland Spirits also sold to a minor during the December compliance check. DePalma said the department will continue conducting the compliance checks throughout town.

Markley keeps promise to hear residents’ concerns Newly elected state Sen. Joe Markley took some time on Jan. 28 to visit with seniors at the Calendar Senior Center in Southington. Markley said he was keeping a campaign promise to stay connected. “These folks supported me and I want to stay in touch and be responsive to their needs,” he said. Voters who supported Markley in the general elections say they were pleased to see him and respected that he kept his word and returned to their center. At lunch, Markley made his way around the cafeteria and listened to more than two dozen seniors as they enjoyed homemade soup — a weekly menu item of the elderly nutrition program a the center. With prices of food, gasoline and labor increasing each year, many of the residents said they were concerned about the state funding to their low cost program. Right now, a resident who can afford it pays $2.50 per meal. Those who don’t have money

to pay are not turned away. The senior center’s director, Bob Verderame, also raised concerns about a state matching grant program for elderly and disabled transportation. Verderame asked Markley to make sure the program remains intact. The town receives 80 percent reimbursement from the state Department of Transportation and a $50,000 state matching grant, all of which pays for buses and drivers. “I understand the need for transportation and recognize Southington is not on a transit district line and has no taxi service,” Markley said. Before leaving the Calendar House, Markley asked constituents to contact him with any future concerns. “If we all work together, Southington will remain a great community to live and work in for years to come.” Markley represents the 16th district towns of Southington, Waterbury, Wolcott and Cheshire. — Office of state Sen.

Taxes Continued from page 1 the BOE and the Town of Southington. Issues discussed involved mostly education budgetary matters and ways to help boost the town’s economy and preserve businesses locally. BOE Chairman Brian Goralski brought up concerns that the Education Cost Sharing Grant of $19.8 million to the town would be cut. He said that number was balanced off the last two years by $2.8 million that was federal stimulus money, but that money is gone now. “The big dilemma for you and the governor to face now is how to fill that $2.8 million gap in a year that cutting and spending and really holding the line on taxes is really important to everyone,” Goralski said. “And the bottom line is, if it’s not there, the taxes in Southington — the people you represent — are going to go up, because that $2.8 million can’t be made up any other way here.” Goralski said he thinks the solution to the ECS and tax problems is to keep growing businesses in Southington. “We did a great deal of growth in our schools through partnerships, whether it be through businesses, student initiatives, and grants from foundations and people,” he said. “To me, growing the economy, growing business is about building that partnership. A business shouldn’t want to leave Connecticut because of the taxes, they should want to stay in Connecticut because we fund education. We have a smart workforce in Connecticut, why? Because we do have ECS funding. Those are the driving forces that make Southington strong, and that’s my solution to offer to you guys is work hard to maintain our business and grow our businesses, because that’s the biggest tax incentive, not by raising taxes, but keeping them here and growing them.” All three legislators agreed there will likely be a tax increase. Zalaski said it would be “foolish” to think a deficit

Robert Sampson listen. could be erased without the tax increase. Markley and Sampson agreed, but remained optimistic that the possibility of getting out of it without a tax increase was possible. “I actually believe you can-

not cut your way out of a recession,” Zalaski said. “It’s $3.6 million that we’re in the hole, and everybody that doesn’t believe we’re going to raise taxes is very foolish.”

struggling, they can’t afford it.” Gibson added the reasoning for home ownership being a requirement is that the contractors can’t go and work on property that isn’t the candidate’s own. “Somebody who may have lost their job,” Gibson said, elaborating on what they’re looking for in a candidate. “The family that we worked with on Giving from the Heart, the husband had a very unexpected medical issue and they had a very young child, and this truly interrupted their dream of their new life together. We know the economy’s been really tough, not everybody’s back to work, and if there are medical issues or anything like that that really disrupts your income flow, it can have huge ramifications on a family. And this winter has been so long and so cold to be living with singlepaned windows.” Tonnotti and Gibson both explained the advantages of having new windows, and how it helps save money from heating and cooling costs. “It helps them down the road, too,” Tonnotti said. “Pretty much saves energy,

This year’s national day is Thursday, April 28, but Tonnotti’s company will hold its day on Saturday, April 30, for volunteer purposes. “There is a two day difference because we can’t install the windows during the week,” Gibson said . “We’re going to have to do it on the weekend because all of the staff who does all the work for the house will actually volunteer their day.” Tonnotti said the ideal family chosen will be the “all-American” type that is struggling in difficult economic times. “It’s pretty much going to narrow it down to a Southington family that would most likely be a husband and wife with children that would consist of them owning their home,” he said. “They can’t rent it, it can’t be a multi-family [home], can’t be a condo. So it’s like the allAmerican family type of thing when you’re looking at how to define it, and the true husband, wife and kids that are working, but they’re

It will definitely cut down on energy costs.” Tonnotti said just like with Giving from the Heart, he would like to dovetail the project with other contractors.

tiple legislators, and at times, they don’t feel that they have faith in their school systems that we have,” he said. “So you have to remember the reality of it is when they put some of these mandates, I think they’re putting the mandates on everybody because they don’t have faith in their own group.” BOE Vice Chairwoman Terri Carmody voiced concern about regional magnet

schools and how much it is costing Southington to fund students’ tuition from town. The town currently pays $350,000 for about 70 Southington students to attend the schools that specialize in specific areas like math, science and the arts. “I have a concern of magnet school tuition and how much it’s costing us in our budget,” Carmody said. “Every time I see an advertisement on television for

the magnet schools, who’s paying for that advertisement? Just because I’m a public school supporter, I’m very upset when I see that.” “Just to drive it home,” Rickard said, “have you seen these ads? They’re spending a lot of money on TV, mailings, all that stuff. There’s an excess and it’s in your face, and it’s ‘Come here and your town will be better,’ when I think what we’re doing here is pretty good here.”

Dean’s List Brenden Blaschke, of Southington, a senior, is a physical therapy major; Dorota Chuchro, of Southington, a senior, is a nursing major; and Halina Jez, of Southington, a junior, is a nursing major, all made the dean’s list at the American International College, Springfield, Mass., for the fall 2010 semester.

“My difference I suppose is I believe we could get out of it without a tax increase, but I don’t think it’s going to happen,” Markley said. “Since the state income tax passed 20 years ago, we have been dead last in economic growth, and I don’t think that’s a coincidence, and I think another tax increase is going to have the same effect on our economy.” “I believe there is absolutely the possibility that we could balance the budget without raising taxes,” Sampson said. “That being said, I don’t think that’s the way it’s going to end up, I think we’re going to end up with a tax increase, but I’m fearful because I feel like the pendulum has swung too far and it seems to me that’s what we’ve done, we’ve chased businesses not only out of Southington, but out of the entire state of Connecticut.” Board members also brought up concerns of mandates issued by the states. Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Learning Howard Thiery said the community plans to work on everything that has been mandated, but the mandates themselves disrupt the process of progression. “We almost need a different way of looking, instead of these mandates where you have to throw a switch and whole thing comes tumbling down,” he said. “We’re actually committed to these things, but we want to grow them up in a way that works for this community and is responsible for this community.” Board member Kathy Rickard said she would like to see legislators help grow businesses and employment rates, and leave the details of education to the local boards. “All of this ‘You must do this and you must do this,’ really shows, in my mind, a lack of faith in your local board,” she said. “We know what’s best for our community, and if you’re going to tell us to do something, you’d better back it up

with the funds to do it.” Markley agreed with Rickard, and said there is no reason for mandates when local boards are “so eager” to put in their best efforts for schools. “To say from the state we’re going to come up with a solution and it’s going to work for everybody, I think it’s a mistake,” he said. “You need to leave it as much as possible to the towns and cities to make their own decisions, and I’ve always believed that. I would leave as much as possible to the local board of education, I don’t think the state should be dictating to the towns.” Zalaski agreed, saying he has faith in his town’s board of education, being a resident of Southington, but he explained there are multiple legislators who don’t have the same faith in their respective towns or districts. “All the big cities have mul-

CCC West champs again By Matt Leidemer Special to The Citizen

It didn’t take long for the Southington High School cheerleaders to start a winning streak. After winning their first conference-level championship last year, the Blue Knights repeated as West Division champions at the Central Connecticut Conference Championships last weekend, which were hosted at Southington High in a 15-

get to where we are. We went through snowstorms and we came out today fully prepared and ready to go, through the challenges we had the past couple weeks,” said Cerreta. For the Knights, the victory comes after a disappointing performance two weeks earlier at the Connecticut Classic competition, held at Wolcott High School. “We were upset about [Wolcott], but we definitely came through today,” said senior Jenalee Bruneau. “There’s no better feeling than today. After going through that, we still made it

team competition. Southington was not the only team to repeat as division winners. Berlin (South) and East Hartford (North) also retained their titles, as Tolland edged defending champion Rocky Hill to claim the East Division. Berlin knocked off two-time defending champion East Hartford to claim their first Conference Grand Champion title, which goes to the highest score of all division winners. Megan Cerreta, a senior and three-year varsity cheerleader for the Knights, felt the result showed the effort her team put into preparation. “We worked so hard, we practice 12 hours a week to

to the top. It’s the best feeling ever.” Head coach Heather Allenback hopes that the championship will show her younger cheerleaders the results that can come from hard work. “Our first competition was not the best, but we’ve had some difficulties in practice, so this does boost their confidence and their focus. Half of our team is young, they’re tenth-graders, so I think this is going to be good for them, to emphasize how important it is to work hard, practice hard, and take this very seriously to get that recognition,” Allenback said.

All systems go as gymnasts ready for states By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen With the regular season now behind them, the focus can shift to the real reason Southington gymnastics competes every year – state titles. “I think we’re the team the beat,” head coach Byron Knox said. The girls got their final test this past Wednesday (result not available at press time) against Glastonbury, a team that on paper is the best in the state. According to the CIAC Web site, they have the highest team scoring average coming into the week. This is a flawed measurement says Knox. “Looking at that average, it’s not a fair assessment of a rankings going into championship,” he says, explaining that the average can be thrown off by one big score or by the number of meets a team has competed in. Coming into the week, the regular season finale at Glastonbury was not only going to put a regular season winning streak on the line, that dates back to early in the century, but it was going to be more of a tune-up for the gymnasts. “We’re going to use a meet like Glastonbury as a practice meet for states,” Knox said. “If they’re supposed to be that much more superior than us then we’re going to see them again, so why not do it in their gym.” Because of the snow, Southington finished the year with only six non-invitational, matches, which shouldn’t post any issue come championships on Feb. 26. “We’re ready. We can literally miss a week and still be able to get out there and compete,” said Knox with confidence. As a team, the girls are coming together at just the right time. Olivia Morrell, who hasn’t competed with the Lady Knights all year because of injuries and other club obligations, but was on the roster, returned against Wethersfield last week and was in lineup this final week, getting ready for states. As one of the top all-around competitors on last year’s squad, Morrell’s arrival provides a nice boost. “It was her idea to start today; she’ll be with us the next few meets through states,” Knox said after the Wethersfield victory. Morrell had to brush the rust off, but once she does, she’ll team up with Southington’s top all-around competitor, Toni Penta, to help lead a dangerous group. “Toni is really coming into her own,” Knox said of his sophomore. “She looks not only

polished, she looks strong and she’s a little more confident than she was the last couple of competitions.” According to Knox, the team used the time out of the snow and between cancelled matches to improve on their skills in preparation for what might lie ahead. “We’ve been trying to upgrade a little bit to meet the level of the unknown competition. You can’t wait until you get to the (state) meet and start pulling out the rule book and start picking skills,” he said. As for that regular season win streak, Knox said he doesn’t even think that’s a though in the girls minds. What he does say is that he feels the buzz that people want to be the defending Class L champs. “I can tell you people want to see us dethroned. I can feel the buzz in the communi-

The Southington Citizen — Friday, February 18, 2011

On brink of elimination, hockey team still fighting By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen

Thanks to the snow, there is still time left – but how much time, well, that is running short. With

seven games left coming into Valentine’s Day week, the 39-1 Hall-Southington ice hockey team still had a chance, but the odds of getting to the 40 percent winning percentage they needed to qualify for the Division III state tournament have become slim.

“We’ll say we’re eliminated if we ever get 12 losses (the magic number for elimination). Until then, we’re still trying to qualify,” head coach Jeff Anastasio said. It wasn’t a successful weekend of trying to get back into things as the Warrior-Knights dropped backto-back contests to Newington-Berlin. It started Friday night in Newington, where they lost 4-2 and it ended Saturday afternoon with a 3-1 defeat. In both games HallSouthington held its own in the first and third periods – as each team had a goal a piece in both periods in both games. In the second period of the two games combined, the Warrior-Knights severely lost the battle with a 5-1 goals against them count. “Second period has been a stumbling block for us all year,” Anastasio said as if he was looking for answers. “We generally come out, we’ve scored the first goal in a lot of our games, and then we kind of fall apart a little bit in the second period and then come back strong in the third.” That was precisely the case in this one. It’s a problem they’ve been dealing with all season and the answer is one Anastasio has re-

After Friday night’s loss, there was still optimism looking forward at a trio of games starting with last Saturday’s Newington-Berlin match-up, which didn’t work out too well. Things contin-

Nick Mastroianni scored, assisted by Kevin SanAngelo and SanAngelo scored, assisted by Brett Schaefer and Nick Carpenter. Newington-Berlin 3, Hall-SHS 1 Kevin Cop scored the lone goal for the Warrior-Knights and Gradante made 32 saves in the loss, which dropped the team to 3-9-1 (0-6-1 CCC South). E.O. Smith-Tolland-Windham 1, Hall-SHS 1 OT Owen Kantor scored the lone goal and Gradante made 28 saves in the tie to improve to 3-9-2 (0-6-2 CCC South).

ued against E.O. Smith Co-op this past Monday, where they managed a tie on the road, not ideal, but better than a loss; that game was followed up with a contest against the Bolton Co-op two days ago (result not available at press time). “These next three games can really turn it around for us,” said Anastasio leading into those three. Reason being is because the final five games, as talked about all year, look like this: at Division II Cheshire (8-32), vs. Division II East Catholic (7-7), at Division III Northwest Catholic (6-7-2), vs. Division I Conard (5-5-3) and vs. Division III Sheehan (5-7) (all records as of Feb.

Individual bests key for swimmers in final week By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen

In the sport of swimming, unique from other sports, pride can be taken in both the overriding goal of the team – which is to win meets – as well as the overriding goal of the individual – which is to win events. In a season, both these goals can weave themselves in and out of a team’s mindset like smooth lane changes amongst a heap of traffic. Evan Tuttle knows this and the head coach for Southington boys swimming and diving is using that now to help motivate his team against the toughest competition yet. “We’re fortunate enough in swimming to have two kinds of success – you have team success and you have personal success,” he said after a loss to Conard, which followed a loss to Farmington. “In meets like today, and basically what we have for the rest of the season, I’m looking at personal success from my guys; putting in times that they can jump out of the pool and be proud of, that their teammates can be proud of as well.” Tuttle said so far, that’s been accomplished and

13). While not all of the records look that alarming, they are all good teams with good wins on the year so to beat some of the smaller schools now, which match-up better with Hall-Southington, is crucial and Anastasio, to a point, agreed.

“The more wins you can knock off the better. Of course, we look at the week ahead and we see some winnable games and we need to take care of those and then try to knock off one of the other teams,” he said.

Whenever things are more finite, Anastasio remains on course – postseason or not, it’s about getting better. “Even after [things are decided], we’re trying to improve.”

The Southington Citizen — Friday, February 18, 2011

Good year ends with loss, tourney up next Cheer By Sarah Gomes Special to The Citizen

The Southington girls basketball team wrapped up its regular season with an 11-9 record on the year, capped off with a tough

3-point loss at the hands of New Britain on Monday night. However, head coach Mike Forgione knows the simplicity of what needs to be done moving forward to ensure success heading into postseason play. “We have to play as a team,” Forgione said. “Ninety-nine percent of the time I’ve been pleased with their effort all year.” In his first season, Forgione took over a team that was coming in top-heavy when it came to youth. “Being my first year, I knew there wasn’t a lot of experience returning,” Forgione said. “I knew their top scorer was gone and a bunch of seniors that played big roles for them in the past.” “It was a battle in the (CCC) West last year so I knew going in there was going to be a lot of challenges ahead of us.” Those challenges seemed to prove moot with a sixPhoto by Matt Leidemer

game win streak only four games into the season, starting off the year 7-2 – so much for rebuilding. It was also a season that saw a 35-26 loss to Northwest Catholic avenged eight games later with Southington coming out on top 28-27 on the road last week. “We gutted it out against Northwest,” Forgione said. It is this gutsy play that will be needed moving forward from the Blue Knights, one game at a time, according to their head coach regardless of what expectations might have or might not have been set from day one. “We really just take it one day at a time so I really didn’t have any long term goals for the season,” Forgione said. “I just started focusing on that first game at RHAM (on opening day).” Now 20 games later, Forgione has a team at the precipice of the postseason and on Feb. 23, they will find out their fate and go into the Class LL tournament no

longer as a group of inexperienced players, but ones ready to compete at a high level. Girls Basketball SHS 28, Northwest Catholic 27 Tori Munson had a game high 17 points and Meg McLaughlin hit one of two free throws with under five seconds left to help seal the win for Southington (11-7,66 CCC West). Emily Durocher chipped in four points. Farmington 39, SHS 33 Munson had 13 and Stephanie O’Keefe had seven for the Lady Knights (11-8, 6-7 CCC West). Danielle Charamut added five points and Maeghan Chapman, four. New Britain 53, SHS 50 Munson led the way with 14, O’Keefe, nine, all on threes, and Charamut, eight. Southington finished the regular season 11-9, 6-8 CCC West. Sawicka had six points, Berry, five.

Southington was well-represented on the All-Conference team. Seniors Angela Beaupre, Bruneau and Cerreta, and sophomore Becky Klem were selected by the coaches to the West Division’s 10-cheerleader team. Cheerleaders tried out for a panel of judges, showing off a variety of skills including jumps, tumbling and cheers, with the 10 top scorers from each division being named to the All-Conference team. As added entertainment during the competition, Southington’s three partner stunt groups performed exhibitions throughout the day, as did team performances from Bristol Central junior varsity, Hartford Public High School and Central Connecticut State University. The CCSU Blue Devils team boasts a pair of Allenback’s alumni, Jessica Baillargeon and Brianna Bruneau, both 2009 graduates of Southington High.

Friday, February 18, 2011 — The Southington Citizen

Guys prepare for CCCs By Michael Guerrera The Southington Citizen It was a raucous crowd – actually, a raucous student section. It was vulgar at times, inappropriate, but mostly just loud and obnoxious, same as every home court student section. It felt like something more than game No. 17 and Hall treated it like that, but Southington did not. “The first half clearly was where we lost the basketball game. We didn’t match their intensity level from the tip. I give all the credit to Hall, who played with great energy, great enthusiasm,” head coach Bob Lasbury said. The score at half was 25-16 and while Southington kept pulling in close, they could never recover. It was an off night offensively as Hall’s menacing, scrappy defense gave the Blue Knights issues. “That defensive style cost us to miss some easy shots,” Lasbury explained. Foreshadowing was in the air, though, as the atmosphere resembled what Southington will see on a daily basis come next week

when postseason starts, first with the Central Connecticut Conference tournament, and then the Class LL tournament. “If we hope to do anything in a conference or state tournament atmosphere, you’re going to go into hostile environments and this was definitely one of them,” said the head coach. “They had a large fan base and we need to be able to focus on what we need to do and not react to anything like that.” Solace can be taken by looking at the Blue Knights’ track record. Just last week, they lost a tough game to Northwest Catholic at home and then bounced back with a win against a good Farmington team. With two games left, Tolland tonight for Southington’s Senior Night, and New Britain on the road Monday, the formula to a strong finish was pretty simple. “We need to have two really good practices tomorrow and Thursday,” explained Lasbury after the Hall game. “It’s the opportunity to learn from this game, to get better and have that springboard us to the tournaments.”

Boys Basketball Northwest Catholic 62, SHS 42 Tyler Dube had 14 points and Sal Romano had a 13point, 12-rebound double-double, but Southington shot 26.7 percent from the field as they lost, ending their sevengame win streak and dropping their record to 11-5 (8-3 CCC West). Drew Aylett had five assists. SHS 60, Farmington 49 Dube had 22 points, five rebounds and six steals, Romano had 20 points, 12 rebounds and Jordan Chapman chipped in 14 points and five boards as Southington won, improving to 12-5 (9-3 CCC West). Hall 65, SHS 50 Romano had 18 points and 11 boards and Chapman had 15 points, seven rebounds in the tough loss for Southington (12-6, 9-4 CCC West). Dube added 10 points and four boards and Alex Borofsky had eight rebounds.

Southington’s Florian selected to All-State ski team By Dave Mongillo Special to The Citizen

Snow Views

The Southington High School ski team is really off and running now that the season is almost over. Last week they had two races in great conditions at Mount Southington. The first of the two was the Grand Slalom (GS) part of the tryouts for places on the All-State team that will carry the Connecticut colors at the Eastern High School Championships in March on the historic race trails at Cannon Mountain, N.H. Four Blue Knight racers were invited to run in the trials. The top 30 boys and girls in the GS go on to race in the slalom. Austin Florian finished fourth in the GS, less than one second out of the gold medal. Sebastian Doughty come in 25 out of the 60 boys in the event and made the cut for the slalom. On the girl’s course Southington’s Jamie Abraham put in three great runs, finishing 25 out of the 51 racers in the GS. Lady Knight racer Christa Case faltered on her second run and finished out of the top 30. Last week, Wednesday (Feb. 9) the full Blue Knight varsity ski team gathered at Mount

Austin Florian skis during the slalom All-State trials this past Monday.
