In case you missed it, there’s something special going on at 43 Clapboard Ridge Rd.
The Danbury High School girls basketball team is on a tear. They completed the regular season undefeated and just topped a great championship run in the FCIAC tournament – winning their first league title.
Over the last several weeks I have stopped into the gym at DHS a couple of times and have been thoroughly impressed by the play of the Lady Hatters. Led by senior Casey Smith (who just hurt her knee at the last game) and sophomores Rachel and Rebecca Gartner, the team has jelled into one of Danbury High’s best all time teams that have ever played at DHS.
Coach Jackie Dinardo has done an outstanding job teaching these young ladies and it shows not just in their excellence on the court, but in their poise and confidence off the court. Coach Dinardo has this team executing at every level, and they will be a force to be reckoned with at the state tournament.
So here’s a tip of our Danbury cap to the DHS Lady Hatters on an outstanding basketball season and a great championship. The whole city is proud of you.
Good luck at the state’s, we are with you all the way.
