It is unfortunate...but this program will continue to tank. 6-4 would be impressive if the schedule was what it was in the past. The teams that are usually competitive were unusually weak...shelton, ND West Haven. I'll get excited when they play competitively against West Haven, Madison & Southington. This was the first loss to Southington in 5 years! All of Cheshire's talent is in the Sophomore class but if they continue to go uncoached they
will not be able to compete with the better programs. Cheshire made a big mistake allowing the "town" to control the program & push Ecke out. Kids that want to play for a well coached program are looking to go elsewhere. It is sure the end of an era in Cheshire and that is a shame. Tisk tisk to the people who caused this mess.
