Ledyard - Michelle Klinikowski and Kylie Fustini had 16 points each as the Ledyard High School girls' basketball team captured its first Eastern Connecticut Conference title since 1992 with a 63-22 victory Tuesday over Windham.
Ledyard (16-3, 9-1) won the ECC Medium Division. The Colonels were forced to wait to earn the title after a Medium Division loss last week to Montville.
"It was awesome," Ledyard coach Adam Baber said of the championship. "I think (losing) fired us up a little bit, but it was going to be awesome no matter when it happened."
Ari Fustini added 10 assists for Ledyard.
