Westhill Beats Blue Wave Baseball

-By Will Wygal-

Boy’s Varsity Baseball lost 3-0 to Westhill High on Saturday. The opposing pitcher threw a no- hitter against Darien. Senior first baseman Teddy Malley said the pitching on both sides was great. “The other pitcher was keeping the ball low and mixing his speeds well, Hickey and Hodges did great too.” The Blue Wave’s season record was 14-6 and including playoffs, 15-7. That’s it for Darien in FCIAC, but States begin tomorrow. (June 1) The boys will face Platt Tech of Milford at 3:30pm on the turf. (varsity player James Patton pictured)

-By: Britt Gordon-

The Girls Varsity Golf Team made history placing second in the FCIAC tournament at New Canaan Country Club on Wednesday May 28.. This placement is the best the DHS girls golf team has ever done in the tournament. The team is also breaking records because for the first time in the team’s history, they will end the season with a winning record, which is currently 8-3-1. At the FCIAC tournament, Darien finished with a total score of 394, and was runner-up to New Canaan, who won the tournament and shot a total score of 368. The team narrowly defeated Fairfield Warde, who had a score of 394, and Greenwich with a score of 400. Junior and Captain Stephanie Ko led the team to near-victory by shooting a tremendous score of 88, and sophomore Kendall Kyritz followed with a score of 94. Sophomore Nicole Granath, and seniors Clare Baldwin and Megan Ardery (Claire & Megan pictured above) also played well and contributed to the team’s success at FCIACs. “I am very excited about our 2nd place FCIAC championship and overall season finishes, because they reflect how much the team has grown in recent years and how hard we worked this season,” sophomore Nicole Granath said. The girls will go to States at Orange Hills Country Club in Orange, Connecticut on June 8.

-By: Elizabeth Crafford-

The Darien boys’ lacrosse team crushed Brien McMahon in the quarter finals of the FCIACs on Wednesday. The Wave started off strong in the first half with 10 goals, while McMahon struggled on offense with zero at the half.

The team hopes to carry on its success in the regular season into the playoffs. “We have a good chance of making it to the finals,” Gordon said. “So that’s our goal."

Girls' Track & Field Takes Second at FCIAC

-By Meg Murphy-

The Girls' Track and Field team took second yesterday at the FCIAC meet, losing to the Danbury Hatters. With some of the worst weather conditions of the season, many athletes got their best times or distances this year. Both the 4x800 team, run by seniors Sam Stuek, Brooke Pfister and sophomores Amanda Dobler and Megan Keane, and the 4x100 team consisting of seniors Meg Gilbert (pictured), Caroline Zuckerman, Grace Doering and junior Meredith Jordan took third place.

Jordan took sixth in the 100m dash and fifth in the 200m. Senior Amanda Koslo and junior Sam Simon took third and sixth in the 400m. In the 800m, senior Erica Long took sixth . Senior Caroline Boulton took fifth place in the 300 hurdles. In the mile, junior Kelly Brophy placed seventh and senior Hadley Riegel placed ninth. Junior Hannah Lyons ran her best personal time, qualified for States and took 15th place. “She CRUSHED her time,” said Brophy while everyone celebrated her huge moment.

Senior Kristen Long took first place in the Pole Vault, with sophomores Charlotte Phillips and Elizabeth Crafford taking second and fourth respectively. In the long jump, Gilbert took third. Junior Christy Gasparino won triple jump and Gilbert took sixth. Gasparino also stole the lead for high jump, winning the event.

Christina DeMaio Hits a High Note

-By: Meghan McIntire-

Softball ace Christina DeMaio (pictured) has high hopes for the future of the team after she graduates next month. “We have had such a great season this year thus far,” DeMaio said. “The 20th (of May) was our senior day and this week we will be going into FCIACS, and after that, States. Our FCIAC record is currently 16-2,” she said. DeMaio attributes the strong season to the bond the girls formed this spring. “We all have really enjoyed playing together this season, and our time together being as successful as we have been. Being a senior, I can say this is not only one of the most successful seasons DHS softball has ever had, but also the most memorable, unique, and enjoyable,” DeMaio said.

Right now, DeMaio’s looking to the next step. “We hope to be very successful in both tournaments. The level of competition will be increasingly intense.” DeMaio also has nothing but great things to say about the team, “My favorite part about this season is the great mix of people we have from coaches to players. We have quite a few freshmen this year that start and play with varsity, and each and every one of us contributes positively to our success and makes this group so unique.”

When asked about her least favorite thing about the season, DeMaio says, “I guess something that is difficult sometimes in all sports is how short the season really is and how every moment of every game means so much; especially now going into FCIACS. We all have really made the most of our season so far, and I am confident that it will continue from here,” she said. The great softball season is the not the only high note for this talented senior. Next fall DeMaio will leave her high school playing days behind when she attends the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston.

-By: Laura Durham-

The girl’s varsity tennis team lost to New Canaan in the first round of the FCIAC tournament on Thursday at New Canaan. Juniors Emily Hough and Sarah Gorski won their doubles match easily, and Junior Alex Budd and Sophomore Amanda Brodsky also won their singles matches. Despite these wins the team lost to the New Canaan team, and will sadly not continue in the FCIAC tournament. They will play at States though, with Kyle McCoy, Amanda Brodsky, Courtney Whiting, and Lindsay Battey all playing at State Opens. I wish the girls luck at States and State Opens!

Wave Sailing Dominates the Competition

-By: Tally Thoren-

The Darien High School sailing team has completed its 2009 season with an outstanding record. In Fairfield County, the team went undefeated and won the FCIAC championship. Congrats to the team for bringing back the “Fairfield Cup” for the second year in a row. The sailors also got ninth in the New England Championships. This year has been one of the best sailing years for DHS due to the great talent. The DHS sailing team says farewell to its seniors: Captain Maarten Eenkema van Dijk, Captain Mackenzie Milne, Katie Marren, Tally Thoren, Katherine Newkirk, Jake Seymour, Will Andrea, and Alex Morrison. Though we are losing many valuable players this year, next year should be just as good with junior Willem Sandburg leading the way. Other key sailors for next year will be juniors Justin Marks, Ines Castro and sophomore Olivia Crane.

Boys Track Ties New Canaan

-By: Christian Nielsen-

Darien took on New Canaan, Wilton, Norwalk, and Brien McMahon, defeating all but New Canaan on Tuesday. The meet went smoothly for DHS Boys Track at the start, winning almost every event on the track, but when the 4x400 came around and it was time to win, Darien came up short with a loss against New Canaan in this event. Due to this setback , the pressure was on the high jumpers to win the event in order to come out on top of New Canaan, or come up short with 2nd to tie the meet. In the end, the jumpers put up a good effort but ended up in 2nd, tying New Canaan in the overall meet 75-75. As for the other scores, Darien defeated McMahon 99-61, and pummeled Wilton 108-42 and Norwalk 110-40. The Darien track team ends up with a record of 13-4-1, with the next meet being the FCIAC final on Tuesday May 26th in Danbury. With this the team would tie New Canaan for the FCIAC East title, but New Canaan would be the champions due to a tiebreaker where they had beaten Ridgefield and the Wave had not.

Spiking to Success: Sam Bryant

-By: Jay Alter-

Sam Bryant (pictured) took the volleyball court for the first time based on his senior sister Lily Bryant’s advice. Extraordinary passing skills took him to the top. Fast. “Since the beginning of the season Sam has caught everybody’s eye with his natural talent and great passing skills,” sophomore Austin Cockerill said. “Now as the season has progressed he has developed his hands and his spike and is becoming an essential player to the team,” Cockerill said. Sam said, “It is one of the hardest things I’ve done in my life, Coach runs us harder than I would do in track practice." Cockerill added, “Sam has started listening to the captains much more and now is really starting to develop his strength and is becoming a reliable and aggressive teammate.” Bryant's pass is not the only strength helping the boys. He is also known for his signature sweet tip shot. Bryant’s serve is improving and he still has that amazing pass that scored him a spot on the team. The Volleyball team is 9-8 in the 2009 season after coming off a victory in the states tournament in 2008. However, during the season the team lost to Ridgefield, thus they did not qualify for the FCIAC tournament.

Fairfield Prep Downs DHS Rugby

-By: Jose Corte-Real-

DHS Rugby lost its final match of the season to Fairfield Prep 22-10 on Monday. Fairfield Prep Rugby is ranked second in the state. Darien’s leaders said despite the loss it was an amazing display of rugby. “It was a good game that unfortunately went their way,” junior captain Connor McCarthy said. They finished with a 3-3 record. That leaves them with a seventh place in the state tournament and seventh team in the state.

Boys Volleyball FCIACS Chances on Line

-By: Claire Dickson-

It seems that a fire scare was all that the Darien boy’s needed to bring down their fire in their game yesterday against Ridgefield. After a 3-1 loss, the boy’s chances in FCIACS are at jeopardy, “We needed to win this one,” senior Marcus D’Iorio said. Not only are the FCIAC chances on the line, but their state rankings as well. The volleyball boys are still recovering from this loss. “We’re not sure what’s going to happen with this,” D’Iorio said. Hopefully they can recover in Wednesday’s game against St. Joseph’s, if not, it’s goodbye FCIACS and hello sprints.

Wave Gets Caught by The Eagles

-By: Jack Bushell-

The Blue Wave baseball team played the Trumbull Eagles in a stunning loss of 3-1. The team looked as though they took a step back as the bats of the Eagles were too much for the Wave to handle. Senior Devin Burke got the call to pitch for the Wave as he got hurt early by a homerun in the second inning. This inning turned out to be terrible for the wave as the Eagles got off three runs. The homerun was a solo shot while the other runs came off of an error, after loaded bases, by sophomore Dan Pidgeon. The team was hurt by starting shortstop senior Chris Bruno being sidelined due to sickness. Dan got the call in his place, and the bats of the Blue Wave couldn't combat the poor fielding. The Wave will try to bounce back against arch rivals New Canaan away at 4pm on Wednesday.

The Wave Crashes

-By: Allie Townsend-

I can’t wait to see them in FCIACs. They’re a great team” senior Ryan Mulligan said. Senior John Bolton had a great game, scoring three goals, along with Chas Brickman who had two goals. Freshman Case Matthias scored one goal, and junior Bryan Annechino put one away as well. Be sure to support the boys varsity lacrosse team on Monday, May 18th against Stamford on the oval turf.

Darien RFC Rucks over Xavier

-By Daniel Campbell-

Darien Rugby won its last league game of the year against Xavier 17-7 at Royle Elementary School on Wednesday. Xavier was ranked no. 4 in the country coming into the game and the Blue Wave beat its B side with tries by sophomore scrum half Kevin Keller, junior fly-half Connor McCarthy, and sophomore inside center Sam McCarthy. DHS controlled many of the rucks and line-outs in the game, allowing them to maintain ball control and go up 12-0 at the end of the first half. The highlight of the second half was a goal line stand by the Wave, who fended off Xavier's attack for several minutes, including holding up a Xavier back in the try zone preventing him from scoring. "We played really well, it was magical," captain Connor McCarthy said after the game. This finishes up the team's league schedule, and they have one more game against Fairfield Prep on Monday.

Girls Lacrosse Drowns Greenwich Academy

-By: Clemmy Little-

The Darien Girls Lacrosse Team came out with another thrashing win yesterday afternoon on their home turf with a score of 22-6 against Greenwich Academy. With the rivals stirring up feelings of competition, the girls knew it was going to be a good game. Eveyone was pumped up. "It's always a fun game against GA, you know private school vs. public school and just the fact that we're both good solid teams-it's a fun fight," senior captain Courtney Bennett said. And the girls sure looked like they had fun out there, but at the beginning it didn't look so hot. The girls were not off to a good start when they went down 0-3 in the first three minutes. "Yeah, you know we came out pretty flat but then Lisa (Head Coach) called a timeout and woke us all up and then we just came back out and owned!" senior captain Jenny Joy enthusiastically stated. Lisa really did wake them all up after that little timeout pep talk because the girls came out with a whole new swagger after that and dominated! With now just three more games left in the regular season the girls are looking towards a really positive post season being ranked #1 in the FCIAC they are looking to go right to the top and keep their reign of State Champions! Be sure to catch their next game Monday, May 18th against Fairfield Warde (away) at 4 PM. (Cali Ceglarski pictured above)

Girls Tennis Tames the Tigers

-By: Britt Gordon-

The Girls Varsity Tennis Team extended its winning record to 5-2 this season with a victory over Ridgefield on Wednesday, May 6. In a score of 5-2 in matches, Darien faced early competition at the top of the singles ladder, but had an easier time defeating Ridgefield in the doubles matches. Senior Annie Wilson (pictured below), who played #1 singles, and junior Alex Budd, playing #2 singles, both went to a third set but were unable to get the win. “If Alex hadn’t been out for two months, I’m sure it would have gone her way,” Girls Varsity Tennis Coach Davin Gebauer said. Lonneke Eenkema Van Dijk, a sophomore who played #3 singles against Ridgefield, won in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4, as did sophomore Sophie Doering (pictured above) at #4 singles, 6-0, 7-6 (4). Seniors Courtney Whiting and Lindsay Battey, who played #1 doubles, were very strong on the court, winning 6-1, 6-2. The other two doubles teams also went without dropping a set. The girl’s team is heading into a difficult upcoming week, where they will play Staples on Monday, Fairfield Ludlowe on Tuesday, and Fairfeld Warde on Wednesday. However, they are still looking to maintain a winning record.

DHS Rugby Lands Top Seven Spot

-By: Connor McCarthy-

The Darien Rugby Club went to the Second Annual Connecticut High School Rugby Tournament at Yale and didn’t even finish last. On Saturday, May 9th, they played the Greenwich Varsity Side, and lost abysmally, but only by about 45 or so. After 30 minutes rest, they went on to play Madison High School: a game they should have won. The A-side was not put out so that everyone could play, and because of this omission the team suffered a close loss. The last match was against Branford High School. Finally they caught a break. Sophomore Sam McCarthy cheekily walked over the try line in the last few minutes, leading Darien RFC to pull out a win. DHS RFC ended the day ranked seventh in the state.

Softball Runs Away with a Win

-By: Jack Bushell-

The Darien Blue Wave squared off against Brien McMahon with a 10-2 win on Saturday. Starting pitcher Christina DeMaio (pictured) went strong throughout the game and raised her record to 10-1. The varsity girls’ softball game went on like a track meet, as the Wave ran all over the opponents, stealing bases and capitalizing on errors in the field. Despite the final score, the game was close in the third inning with McMahon putting a run on the board with a laser double by the clean-up hitter. Later in the fourth, Darien went up by five with a score of 6-1 when junior Alexa Tarantino scored after stealing second on sophomore Olivia Gozdz’s double to center. Hot-hitting senior Mallory Kahn also propelled the Wave to a win with a double in the fourth. DeMaio was relieved by senior pitcher Kristen Perry. After Perry shut down McMahon in the final two innings, it was all her ball game. The girls next game will be away on Monday against Danbury.

DHS Baseball Moves Forward in Big Win

-By Christian Panier-

The DHS Varsity Baseball team handily defeated Bridgeport Central 17-2 on the DHS varsity turf on Wednesday. With this win, Coach Michael Scott and the team moved to an 8-4 record. Highlights included senior Teddy Malley’s (pictured right) pitching, recording six strikeouts in only four innings, and senior Ryan MacDonald’s homerun. Spectators were pumped up with the great showing from their starting lineup. Thursday’s game produced a similar result. DHS’s home 10-point shutout over Brien McMahon has pumped the team up for their next game, taking place Friday at 3:45 at home against Fairfield Warde. In JV news, the boys trounced Central nine to nothing on Wednesday pushing their record to 6-5. The Freshman and Junior Varsity squads are also set to face Warde Friday at 3:45 and 4:00 respectively.

Golf Swings To Success

-By: Reece Pelley-

Varsity boys golf team has been full of promise this year. As of this week the team stands with a record of 6-4-1. They are prime to make a run for the FCIAC title. “Coach is changing the line up to see who we compile to make the final FCIAC team” junior captain Sean Fahey said. (pictured right) Fahey went on to mention the team’s biggest win this year against Wilton and Danbury, two very strong teams that have become recent powerhouses in FCIAC golf. The team did suffer from a tough loss earlier this season to New Canaan, but since that match the team has been strongly rebuilding under strong leadership. When asked about the team as a whole Fahey commented, “If we have a solid five (players) and if were all on that day then we can win it.”
The team has also been helped by many new underclassmen that for the first time this year are contributing to the line up. “Andrew Winter is stepping up along with a few other good sophomores,” said Fahey, who also went on to comment that if certain players can play well and shoot low on tournament day then there is no reason they shouldn’t be able to take home the hardware.

Kahn was 3 for 4, slamming a triple, a double, and a single. Freshman center fielder, Olivia Gozdz, hit two runs in with a triple on an error. Junior, Michele Piccaro, added to the unstoppable offense with a double. Defensively, Darien didn’t allow many girls on base. “It was another big win for our team,” DeMaio said. “We are now looking forward to the tough games ahead.” Darien will face Brien McMahon, Fairfield Warde, Danbury, and St. Joes in the next week.

Farmington Downs Girls LAX

-By Allie Townsend-

Darien girls varsity lacrosse team faced off against one of its most difficult competitors in Farmington on Saturday. The girls lost with a score of 6-9, making their record fall to 9-1-1. Going into the game, senior Clemmy Little knew that they wouldn’t be able to relax for a second. The girls played their hardest, but didn’t get the result that they strove to achieve. “Farmington was really good. Their defense was their strongest force. We had a hard time getting through their defense,” captain Phoebe Maglathlin said. However, with six goals netted, the girls were able to pull through for the most part. Phoebe noted junior Liz Calby’s (pictured above) positive attributions to the game. “Liz Calby was a stand-out, and played well throughout the entire game,” Maglathhlin said. The girls play Ridgefield on Tuesday, May 5th at 4pm at the DHS stadium.

JV Lacrosse Wins Easy

-By: Connor McCarthy-

The boys JV Lacrosse played Ridgefield on Thursday, April 30th at DHS. They won 14-7 with a few goals by J.P. Walsh, Scotty Watters, and a memorable goal by Brandon Coley. “It was a pretty fun game, and there was some major tension resulting with some [scuffles], but all in all, I’d say we played pretty well” Walsh said. The JV has another game on Friday, May 1st against Trumbull at Trumbull. Younger varsity players will be coming down to the JV since there are so many varsity players this year, and hopefully they will be able to help the regular JV put one up over Trumbull tonight.
