Linked Up – Winter Championships 2019

It began February 7 with the Class S Indoor Track & Field Championship, and concluded March 19 with the Ice Hockey Division I Championship. That was the 2019 CIAC winter championship season in which dreams were made, hearts were broken and many, many memories were made. Every championship game, every dramatic meet, every competition had a story. These are all those championship stories, thirty-six of them in all.

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.
