With the Connecticut high school basketball season right around the corner, there have been some changes in the classes for the state tournament.


Some of the highlighted moves, due to the success rule, include the following:


·      East Catholic (CCC Conference) has moved to Class LL

·      Sacred Heart (NVL Conference) has moved to Class L

·      Immaculate (SWC Conference) has moved to Class M

All three of these teams won their respective former classes’ state championship, but because of the changes that were made, only Hillhouse will have the opportunity to defend their state championship crown from the 2015-2016 season.
