Bears hit the road for Class M opener


STONINGTON — Stonington High’s girls’ basketball team will be on the road for its Class M state tournament first-round game.

The 18th-seeded Bears play at No. 15 Plainville on Monday at 7 p.m.

Thirty-two of the 44 Class M schools qualified for the tournament by winning at least 40 percent of their regular-season games.

Stonington and Plainville are two of six teams to go 13-7. The tie was broken by power points, the Bears having the second fewest of the six teams.

Plainville plays in the Southern Division of the 32-team Central Connecticut Conference. The Blue Devils did not qualify for the eight-team conference tournament.

If Stonington (13-8 overall) wins it will play at No. 2 Cromwell (19-1) or home against No. 31 Enfield (9-11) on Thursday.

Holy Cross (19-1) is the top seed.

Five other ECC schools are in the field — No. 5 New London (17-3), No. 21 Plainfield (12-8), No. 26 Waterford (11-9), No. 28 Montville (10-10) and No. 29 Windham (10-10).

GYMNASTICS

Stonington qualified for Saturday’s Class S state tournament at Pomperaug, which gets underway at 1 p.m.

The 24 teams with the highest team averages qualify. A team’s average is computed by averaging the five next best scores after the top team score has been discarded. There are 37 teams in the state.

The 24-team field is divided into three groups of eight based on last year’s enrollment.

The Bears’ average of 118.13 puts them seventh in Class S.

Woodstock Academy is first with a 148.27. The Centaurs won Class M titles in 2011 and 2012 and the Class S crown last season. They won Open titles in 2012 and 2013, making them the best team in the state those seasons.
