Linked Up – Winter Championships 2020

Southington got a number of strong performances to earn a title in Class L. David G. Whitham – Hearst CT Media.

It begins with many runs at the Floyd Little Athletic Center and wraps up with the “Run To The Sun” and the “Road To The Whale.” Of course the “it” is the CIAC winter championship season, and it is underway. Thirty-seven teams will lift CIAC championship plaques and there will be stories on those and many others throughout the winter. Linked Up – Winter Championships 2020 will have all the great championship stories and corresponding emotion right here.

For those unfamiliar (or simply as a reminder for those who are previously familiar) Linked Up Championships will provide a link to the local media story for all of the CIAC Championships over the course of the season.It provides a one-stop shop for anyone looking for great stories on championship-winning teams.
