One of the new regular features of the new CIACsports.com will be to provide a sampling of the fine coverage of local high school sports by the Connecticut media. In most cases this will never be an all encompassing effort, and there are stories that will be missed. It is simply an attempt to put some more eyes on some of the interesting stories being told around the state. This will surely increase in the coming weeks as the season previews begin in full force from the state’s media, and we will do our best to keep up with that flow. For now, here is a sample of what is making news right now.
