Player of the year

It was the first league title in 10 years. Bojka was named Skyline Conference Player of the Year, posting a 18.1 point-per-game average and finishing with 1,227 career points.

Final game for the Hounds
Naugatuck senior Ese Onakpoma played his final high school game for the Greyhounds, along with five other seniors in a tough 58-50 loss to Wilbur Cross on March 10 in the second round of the Div. I state tournament. Onakpoma scored a team-high 17 points.

All-American honors
The Naugatuck girls 4×400 meter-relay team of freshman Lily Jason, senior Julia Kropo, junior Lauren Sonski and senior Allison Murphy finished sixth at the Nike Indoor Nationals on March 12 to earn All-American honors in a season that also saw them garner All-New England and All-State honors as well.

Making the 1st one count
Prospect resident and former Woodland baseball player Colby Linnell, who holds the school record for most hits in a season, helped Eastern Connecticut State University earn a 10-3 win over Purchase on March 11.
