Since the league’s inception in 1994-95, SCC has enjoyed success in boys and girls basketball. Last year, the Career girls won the SCC league title on its way to winning the Class LL championship and finished number-one in the state. Two years ago, the Hillhouse boys program won the back-toback state titles (2006 and 2007) on its way to finishing as the top team in the final state polls.

Founded in 1994, the Southern Connecticut Conference celebrates its 15th season of competition in 2008-09 with 23 member-schools and nearly 23,000 students. Recognized as the premier athletic league in the state of Connecticut, SCC member schools have captured over 260 state championships since the league’s inception. More importantly, the SCC is recognized for its outstanding non-athletic programs and events, which attempt to break down barriers and build bridges of understanding to its students.
