Fantastic 5: Vote for the Overtime FCIAC Spring Team of the Year


After a long list of memorable accomplishments over the last 10 weeks, it is time for you to decide who was the very best of the best. We have selected 5 outstanding finalists for our annual BlueStreak-Overtime FCIAC Spring Team of the Year award.

The winner will receive custom-made T-shirts from BlueStreak Sports Training, Garden Catering and the Stamford Advocate.

Here are the finalists:

DARIEN BOYS LACROSSE: The Blue Wave were nationally ranked throughout the season and finished with a 20-2 record. They reached the FCIAC semifinals and won the CIAC Class M championship.

GREENWICH BOYS GOLF: The Cardinals completed the season 21-0, won both FCIAC (by 21 strokes) and state championships and had a state-record 3.8 team handicap.

NEW CANAAN GIRLS LACROSSE: The Rams finished the season 21-1, including 16-0 during the regular season, and won the CIAC Class M state title.

RIDGEFIELD BOYS VOLLEYBALL: The Tigers finished the season 20-2 and won their first-ever FCIAC championship. They also advanced to the finals of the state tournament.

TRUMBULL BASEBALL: The Eagles, who needed a five-game winning streak just to qualify for the FCIAC Tournament, stunned unbeaten Greenwich in the final for their first title since 2005, allowing just one run in three games.

Those are the 5 finalists. You have until noon on Wednesday to select the 2012 BlueStreak-Overtime FCIAC Spring Team of the Year.
