Northern Connecticut Girls' Softball League


The Northern Connecticut Girls' Softball League expanded to 24 teams in 2004, each age group growing by one, with a total of 362 players participating.
The U-14 division, with a total of 202 players registered on 13 teams, gained a second entrant from West Hartford. Manchester Blue took home the regular season title with a 12-0 record and then repeated as U-14 tournament champs, winning all their games to become the first NCGSL team to finish an entire season and tournament undefeated. They bested a tough West Hartford I team in the tournament final.
The U-16 league totaled 160 players on 11 teams. Mansfield did not return but Suffield and Marlborough entered teams, bringing to seven the number of towns fielding teams in both age groups. Vernon and Granby won their respective divisions and Enfield defeated Vernon 2-1 in an exciting U-16 tournament final.
Both All-Star games ended in 7-7 ties to conclude the league's seventh season.
