Senior Henry Wynne of Staples-Westport swept the Class LL and the State Open titles and then went to Maine and capped off his season with a New England title.
Lewis Mills-Burlington senior Kevin Sullivan won the Class M title and the Berkshire League championship.
Peter Brandon led Haddam-Killingworth to the Class SS championship after the Cougars were forced to go home because of the snowstorm at the meet the year before.
