A Season to Remember

By Jack Tierney

In recent years Darien has excelled at most sports, but what they have recently done has been nothing short of dominant. In the last week alone the Blue Wave has won FCIAC titles in Baseball, Girls and Boys Lacrosse, Boys Volleyball, and Girls Tennis. An unfathomable amount of success in not only one season, but in one week as well.

Lacrosse was expected to succeed this season, as always Darien has a strong program and they continued that trend of success for both boys and girls. Darien Baseball capped off an impressive season with a clutch 2-1 win in extra innings against Trumbull. Boys Volleyball took care of Ridgefield led by juniors Alex Preston and Tim Herget. Girls Tennis finished 16-0 in the regular season and took care of business in the FCIAC tournament.

Darien has now declared themselves kings of the FCIAC conference, winning five titles in one week's time. This bodes well for the future of all of these programs, as they hope to continue this culture of success.
