What is the SCC's best moment/performance of the 2014-15 year?  Town Fair Tire was the presenting sponsor of the SCC’s “Best of… for 2014-15,” an online poll to determine the best moment or performance in the Southern Connecticut Conference during the academic year. More than 900 votes were cast over a 14-day period.

The Winner: For the first time in league history, three SCC baseball teams (Amity Regional – LL, North Haven-L, and Sheehan-M) win state titles. Sheehan defeated Montville, 5-0, in Class M final on June 13. A day later, Amity Regional captured its third straight Class LL title (8-1 over Staples) and North Haven held off East Lyme, 3-2, in the Class L final.
