•Devin Belinski - Amity-Woodbridge baseball
The left fielder was 3-for-4 with six RBI in Amity’s 14-6 victory over Fairfield Prep in the SCC baseball title game. The Spartans finished the regular season 13-7 and are the 14th seed in the Class LL tournament. Last year, Amity won the state title LIVE on CPTV Sports after going 12-8 in the regular season. We will again have all four CIAC baseball championships LIVE June 12-13 as part of our Spring Sprint coverage.
•Mike Cowell — Shelton baseball
The Fordham-bound senior righthander pitched his second no-hitter of the season, blanking North Haven 3-0 in the SCC tournament quarterfinals. Only two batters reached base, both on errors. Cowell was the first UChoose Student-Athlete of the Week this spring after pitching his first no-hitter against Branford. He also was featured last week in the Best In Connecticut Sports Spotlight on CPTV Sports’ In Focus (Wednesdays, 7 p.m.)
•Chris Gatt – McMahon-Norwalk boys lacrosse
The senior attackman and captain helped his team advance in the CIAC Class L tournament. Gatt had two goals, including the winner in overtime, as the Senators rallied from a four-goal deficit to beat Conard-West Hartford, 10-9. He also had two assists.
•Nick Kenny – Granby boys lacrosse
The junior attacker’s overtime goal propelled the Bears past Somers 7-6 in the NCCC boys lacrosse championship game (of note: the Granby girls also won the conference title).
•Colin McCarthy – Xavier-Middletown boys lacrosse
The sophomore played a huge role in Xavier’s first SCC tournament title since 2001. In last Tuesday’s 15-14 semifinal win over North Haven, he tied the score with 27 seconds left in regulation before scoring the winner in overtime. In Thursday’s title game streamed LIVE on CPTVSports.org, McCarthy scored four goals in the Falcons’ 13-8 win over Fairfield Prep
•JT Morin – Wilton baseball
The senior lefthander pitched two complete games without allowing an earned run as the Warriors won their first FCIAC tournament title in 20 years. Last Tuesday, he struck out 14 and allowed eight hits on 137 pitches in a 6-1 quarterfinal win over Noralk. Three days later, he struck out 12, scattered two hits, and pitched all eight innings in the Warriors’ 1-0 win over Staples-Westport in the final.
