The lady wolverines have been a “streaky” team all season when it comes to wins and losses. In the middle of the campaign, Griswold went on a 4 game losing streak just after winning 4 out of 5 (12/18 – 1/8). Then, to finish off the regular season, Griswold went on another streak winning 6 of 7 regular season games, starting with a win at St. Bernards, 44-35. They also had wins against, Woodstock Academy, Montville, Lyman Memorial, and Parish Hill in that stretch.
Then, there’s Stonington. Stonington beat Griswold twice in the 2021-2022 season and they had to oppose them one more time in the opening round of the ECC DIV II Tournament. The Griswold girls lost for the 3rd time, 53-27, with Stonington stifling Griswold with their defense.
It’s time to start another streak! What a better time to do that than the CIAC State Tournament.
The tournament brackets were released today, and Griswold ended up with a #15 seed. The Lady Plainfield Panthers actually ended up with a #17 seed and they hold 2 regular season victories against the Wolverines. Plainfield will face #16 Watertown and Griswold draws #18 Platt Tech. Round 1 starts on March 1.
The road doesn’t get any easier for Griswold is they get past Platt. They then get the #2 seed Bacon Academy who went 18-2 during the regular season. Plainfield would get #1 Holy Cross.
SNSN will have continuous updates from the State tourney as well as the upcoming Boys ECC and State Tournaments.
