Here’s the latest message from CIAC:
Update Sunday 10:00 am. On Tuesday morning we will have use of 6 tennis courts at nearby St. Joseph’s College (about 1.5 miles from Hall). In order to get through the draw and, possibly, an additional singles round, we will need some teams to go to that site. Supervision by coaches will be necessary and we may have a site director available. If both coaches cannot be on site, we will disallow coaching so that one player/team does not gain an advantage. We must vacate the site by 2:00 to allow for a Girls State tournament home match for NWC.
Welcome to the CIAC Boys Tennis Class LL Tournament Championships. Thank you for your patience with our postponements, and please continue to be patient with a very long day of matches.
