After a long list of memorable accomplishments over the last 10 weeks, starting on Sunday morning it is time for you to decide who was the very best of the best. We have selected nine outstanding finalists for our annual BlueStreak-Overtime FCIAC Spring Coach of the Year award.
The winner will receive a trophy from BlueStreak Sports Training and the Stamford Advocate.
The finalists are a blend of coaches who either led their teams to titles, or unexpected success that resulted in a program’s best season ever. The field was compiled after talking to and getting recommendations from a number of league coaches in each sport, as well as personal observations.
The 9 finalists are:
Jeff Babineau, St. Joseph Softball
Jeff Brameier, Darien Boys Lacrosse
Lidania Cibere, Ridgefield Boys Volleyball
Elaine Gratrix, Norwalk Softball
Ben Levy, Stamford Girls Lacrosse
John Reisert, Fairfield Ludlowe Girls Tennis
Jeff Santilli, Greenwich Boys Golf
Patrik Vician, Westhill Boys Tennis
Kristin Woods, New Canaan Girls Lacrosse
The voting will run from Sunday morning until next Wednesday at noon, so check back and be prepared to vote.
