SCC, SWC, ECC Announce Football Scheduling Partnership

Three Connecticut high school football leagues have announced a two-year scheduling partnership that will involve 39 total teams and at least 80 games over the next two seasons (2017 and 2018).  Twenty-two teams from the Southern Connecticut Conference, including league newcomers Harding and Bassick, along with 12 from the South-West Conference and five from the Eastern Connecticut Conference have agreed to a scheduling partnership that will begin in 2017. 

Harding and Bassick Will Join Southern Connecticut Conference as Associate Members for Football

Warren G. Harding and Bassick high schools will join the Southern Connecticut Conference as associate members in the sport of football, starting with the 2017 season.  The SCC athletic directors and principals unanimously voted to invite the two Bridgeport-based schools into the league for football earlier this month.   The addition of the two schools brings the SCC’s football-playing schools total to 22.  The league will most likely remain in three-tier format with Harding joining tier two, and Bassick in tier three.  The league is currently in the process of setting up a two-year schedule (2017and 2018).

Refurbished Bowen Field Dedicated

Although it opened in 1947, Bowen Field in New Haven had never seen a game played under the lights.  Since the SCC was founded in 1994, the New Haven schools (Hillhouse/Wilbur Cross) were the last football teams in the SCC to play during the day.  in 2016, Creed/Career/Whitney Tech became the SCC's 20th football team, and on September 9, Bowen Field was re-dedicated with a pre-game ceremony.   Ironically, the first game was two New Haven schools - Hillhouse vs. Creed/Career/Whitney Tech.  Hillhouse prevailed, 35-0.
