AROUND THE HORN: Sheehan, Southington football move into Top 10; Platt-Newington game moves to Saturday morning; Meriden Raiders go 4-0-1; Hunter women wrap up golf season



The Southington football team returned to the top 10 in the state polls this week, while the Sheehan Titans made their first appearance under coach John Ferrazzi.

The Blue Knights (3-1) are ranked in both the GameTime CT media poll (No. 9) and the New London Day coaches poll (No. 10).

Sheehan (4-0) cracked the coaches poll at No. 9. The Titans are receiving votes in the media poll and rank at No. 13.

Maloney (4-0) and Cheshire (3-1) have also attracted the attention of voters.
