#SCC25 Turn Back the Clock - June 3

#SCC25 Turn Back the Clock -- June 3, 2008

Four of the five teams in the SCC’s Hammonasset Division reached the state baseball semifinals.

Three of the schools - Guilford, Hand and Jonathan Law - were in Class L, while Foran was in Class M.  

Jonathan Law, which defeated defending Class L champion and SCC-rival Guilford in the semifinals, went on to win its first-ever state title - a 7-1 win over Fairfield Ludlowe on June 7 at Palmer Field.  

A fifth SCC school - Amity reached the Class LL semifinals for the sixth straight season before falling to eventual champion Westhill, 2-1. 

Regardless, the SCC had a state-best seven teams reach the quarterfinal round and another state-best five reach the semifinals.

Fast forward to 2019, the SCC has three teams (Cheshire and Amity in LL; Notre Dame in L) reach the state semifinals.
