After going toe-to-toe with long-time state powerhouse Granby Memorial High School for close to an hour and 18 minutes, a tip in by Granby’s Mia Olsen off a shot by Haley Makuch got past Lauralton Hall goalkeeper Caitlin Bennett to give the Bears a 1-0 victory in double overtime in the CIAC Class S championship game played at Wethersfield High School on Saturday afternoon. It was Granby’s third straight state championship, and fourth in five years.
From 1920 to 1955, Tilden completely dominated the sport. There has never been a player in tennis history who has dominated an entire era like Tilden did. In the 1920s, Tilden never lost a single important match for seven straight years. He won the United States Amateur Championship six times in a row and seven times in total. He also led the United States to seven consecutive wins at the Davis Cup from 1920 to 1926.
USGWA is great and Golf GTI Kent Bailo is a great man for starting it. I’m not saying don’t go to USGWA or don’t go to the USAW Folkstyle Nationals. I’m saying make freestyle a priority and you’ll opportunities will begin to increase tremendously.

Syndey Spitz, the Crusaders’ senior sweeper, had five defensive stops to her credit. But make no mistake: the star of the game was Bennett, who often resembled a hockey goalie-which she is during the winter for the Crusaders ice hockey team. Bennett single-handedly kept Lauralton Hall, which was outshot for the game by a 31-11 margin, in the contest by making numerous kick saves and routinely leaving the net to cut down angles on shots. That obviously had an effect on Granby, which had scored 11 goals in three tournament games coming into the finals.
