Final Softball Ratings: Huge Leap By Trumbull To No. 1

Trumbull, which was unranked in the last state ratings following an 11-0 loss in the FCIAC Tournament quarterfinals, moves into the No. 1 spot after regrouping and rolling through the CIAC tournament, beating Southington 4-3 to win its first Class LL title.

Coach Jacqui Sheftz, who won three titles with Masuk, is in her second year of coaching at Trumbull. "My coaching staff came to Trumbull for a reason," said Sheftz, who got her 300th career win last year. "We saw the girls coming through that feeder system. We've seen them play softball. We knew they had the heart and desire. They just needed to be led in the right direction."
