The fall season is still not over, even though COVID 19 statistics would seem to dictate otherwise with the Griswold Schools shutting down for 2 weeks. The Eastern Connecticut Conference announced on Thursday that they are going to still provide a post season sports experience for our student athletes. Football players are going to converge to New London on October 31 for a skill drill competition which will include only High School seniors and juniors. It is got going to be a football contest, but a skills competition. Also, No spectators will be allowed to be in attendance. Boys and girls soccer teams will be competing. The current ECC regions will be divided into 2 groups. The top 4 schools will compete in a tournament (semis, finals, and consolation game). The lower 3 teams will play in a round robin style competition with each game getting 2 games, all will be at the higher ranked school’s site. Spectator policy will be determined by the policy at the host school. The boys will play their tournament on November 12 and 14, while the girls will play theirs on November 11 and 13. Volleyball will also be having a post season and much like soccer, the ECC will be divided into 2 groups according to seeding. Each team will get 2 games. Again, spectator policy will be determined by the host school. Cross Country will have 3 separate meets hosted by the ECC. Each team will be allowed to enter up to 7 runners per team. The sessions are listed below:
