Over in Class LL, New Britain’s Will Homar and Newington’s Gunnar Johnson were two of the 20 players to make All-State. As the team’s ace, Homar helped lead the Hurricanes to a 14-8 record and had a sub-1 ERA. Johnson made an impact in his first full varsity season and was chosen as a sophomore.

Bristol Eastern’s Mac Goulet was the area’s lone representative from Class L. The senior was a driving force behind the Lancers’ run to the quarterfinals this season, which they finished 14-9.
