Greenwich girls have eyes on the prize

The Greenwich girls lacrosse team have its eyes firmly set on the FCIAC championship and based on the

Shannon Colligan of Greenwich is hoping the Cardinals can make a run to the FCIAC championship this year.

 conversations I had with players and coaches at practice the other day, anything less would be a disappointment.

And this is coming from a team that won the Class L championship last Spring.

“Our disappointment was in the FCIAC,” senior captain Shannon Colligan said. “The senior class does not want to leave without a FCIAC championship under our belt especially knowing what it feels like to win states.”

Colligan was not alone in her desire to win FCIACs.

“I think we are really set on winning the FCIAC because that is something we have not done in a while,” goalie Hannah Jeffrey said. “This team has the potential to get there but we are going to have to work really hard but I think we can do it.”

The Cardinals last won the FCIAC tournament in 2003.

The FCIAC will once again be stacked at the top of the conference with Greenwich, Wilton, Darien, New Canaan, Staples and Ridgefield all feeling they have shot to take home the title.

The FCIAC season preview will run next week but the coaches I have talked to seem to think this will be another fight to the finish in the toughest girls lacrosse conference in the state.
