Through the first quarter of the season there have been some very good starts by teams at Hall and Conard High Schools.


On the  boys volleyball court, both the Titans and Red Wolves are ranked in the top 10 in Class LL. Hall is undefeated heading into Friday’s meeting with Wethersfield. The Titans have dropped just one set so far this season and are one of just four unbeatens in LL. Hall is ranked fourth in Class LL.

Conard is ranked ninth in Class LL and was off to a 3-1 start heading into a showdown with Southington. The Red Wolves had dropped just one set in their opening three wins.


Coach Matt Cersosimo has the Conard boys lacrosse team hitting on all cylinders. With scoring from the likes of Nick Katsaros, Luke Shaffer, and Will Keever , strong two-way play from  Jules Capone, and a solid defense anchored in the cage by Brayden Mangini, the Red Wolves were off to a 6-0 start before falling to fellow (and still) unbeaten Northwest Catholic 12-9 on Thursday. Conard has scored 88 goals on the season.

Hall has struggled early on under first-year coach Keith Blum. After winning its opener against Wethersfield they have dopped three straight and hope to get back to their winning ways Saturday at Norwich Free Academy.


Hall is 3-3 through its first six games after a 19-5 win over Northwest Catholic Thursday.

Conard has struggled to an 0-6 starts and looks to gets its first win Friday when it meets Hall.


Like the Conard baseball team, the Hall girls softball team is looking for its first win. The Titans will look for win No. 1 against Wethersfield Friday.

Across town, Conard sits at 2-3, but currently holds the final spot for playoff contention at No. 23 in Class LL. The Red Wolves have scored 24 runs in their two wins, and two of the three losses have come against unbeaten teams. Conard plays winless East Hartford on Friday, looking to move to .500 on the season.
