Final two weeks of the high school season

The final two weeks of the nine-month high school sports season is upon us. Plenty of area teams are still competing for state championships.
In baseball, Shelton and West Haven square off on Tuesday for a berth in the Class LL finals. That game will be played at Palmer Field in Middletown at 7 p.m. At Beehive Field in New Britain, Sheehan and Branford are playing in separate games Tuesday for the right to reach the Class L final this weekend.
DeLuca Field in Stratford and West Haven High are the sites for the softball semifinals. Area teams Mercy (Class LL), Naugatuck (Class L), Guilford (L), Derby (S) and Coginchaug (S) are all battling for spots in the finals while the Class M matchup between Seymour and Lauralton Hall at DeLuca Tuesday night should bring out plenty of people to watch Kim Bogen and Bridget Gates possibly duel into extra innings.
In lacrosse, Amity and Fairfield Prep square off tomorrow in the Class L boys' lacrosse quarterfinals in Woodbridge. Guilford (M) and Morgan (S) are also still alive.
Cheshire is the remaining boys' volleyball team in the area. The Rams come off a come-from-behind five-set win at Fairfield Ludlowe Friday night. Now Cheshire tries to take down another giant killer, Southington, in the semifinals Tuesday night.
The golf championships for Divisions II, III and IV will be contested Monday while Division I is on Tuesday. The girls' golf championship is also on Tuesday.
The finals for the boys' tennis individual division championships and the girls State Open is Wednesday. The State Open track meet is Monday at New Britain.

Next week, the State Open for boys' tennis and the heptathlon and the decathalon for track concludes the season.

See you out there.
