Canton Girls Advance to Round 2 of Class S Tournament

With a 55-20 win over the Wolcott Tech Wildcats Monday evening, the lady Warriors move on to the second round of the CIAC Class S tournament on Friday.

During the game, many of the younger Canton players had the chance to play during much of the game.

“Tonight was an opportunity to really get everybody involved,” said coach Brian Medeiros. “We knew coming in that Wolcott Tech had made a nice run to make the state tournament but we probably knew it wasn’t going to be the closest game.”

Friday night, the girls will take on Windham at 7 p.m. in the Canton High School gymnasium.

The girls are hoping to get back to the championship game at Mohegan Sun, where they lost the championship to Thomaston last year. It won’t be an easy road and the team could face some of its toughest competitors but if the girls play up to their potential, play consistently and “bring their A game,” Medeiros feels their chances are good.

“If we just take care of the ball and play like we’re capable of doing, I think we have a great chance to get back there,” he said.

The rain and high winds late Wednesday and early Thursday caused a few issues in Canton, notably cancellation of classes at Cherry Brook Primary School on Thursday.

The closing of the school was due to the lack of power and downed limbs and wires that closed portions of Barbourtown Road.

Many parents and teachers were already on their way to the school when the message came. Superintendent Kevin D. Case said he received the information shortly before 8 a.m. and apologized to for any inconvenience.

“I was just notified so I apologize for the late notice,” he wrote. “Only Cherry Brook School will be closed.”

He also sent out a follow up email detailing the timeline of events.

On Thursday morning, Public Works Director Robert Martin said his department, police and the fire police from the town of Canton Volunteer Fire and EMS Department did a good job of securing the area.

Crews were also out clearing up other downed trees and limbs and some roads, especially in Canton and North Canton, were closed for part of the day.

“I have several other crews scattered throughout town picking up debris, downed limbs and branches in the roadways,” Martin said Thursday morning.
