Davina Hernandez chuckled when reminded how many runs her Southington (Conn.) softball team has both scored and allowed this season.

The Blue Knights’ run differential has been absurd, as they’ve scored 86 runs and allowed just two.

More absurdity — Southington isn’t even halfway through its schedule yet.

Also note that the defending CIAC Class LL champions have battered opponents with a new head coach, a new battery, two new outfielders, and with just three seniors on the roster.

“We knew we had four key losses, but I’ve been impressed with some of the girls,” Hernandez said. “Some of them made huge improvements. You could really tell they’ve put the work in during the offseason.”

Southington is 7-0 and ranked No. 1 in the New Haven Register Top 10 poll. The program has won a state-record 15 state titles.
