Native American River Division Names – Hammonasset, Housatonic, Oronoque and Quinnipiac - Remain
The Southern Connecticut Conference will keep the names – Hammonasset, Housatonic, Oronoque and Quinnipiac – for its divisions in the following sports – boys/girls cross country, boys/girls soccer, girls volleyball, boys/girls basketball, baseball, softball and boys/girls outdoor track & field.
Last year, the seven sports’ divisional alignments were realigned by the league’s Scheduling Committee, and will be in effect for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons. The sports of boys and girls cross country/outdoor track & field were not realigned.
The four names, which are Native American rivers all located in the SCC’s 16-town footprint, have been used by the league ever since its origin as a “super conference” back in the early 1990’s.
“After much consideration, the SCC will keep the names of the four Native American rivers as the division names for seven realigned sports and four others that were not realigned,” SCC commissioner Al Carbone said. “We considered a variety of names and people to honor, and also acknowledged that our schools may be in different divisions for different sports. However, the existing names’ relevance to the conference’s history was simply too important to change.”
