After a long list of memorable accomplishments over the past three months, starting on Sunday morning it is time for you to decide who was the very best of the best. We have selected eight outstanding finalists for our annual BlueStreak-Overtime FCIAC Winter Coach of the Year award.
The winners will receive a trophy from BlueStreak Sports Training and the Stamford Advocate.

The eight finalists are:
Rich Bulan, New Canaan Girls Hockey
Niko Filippakis, Trumbull Wrestling
Joel Geriak, Wilton Boys Basketball
Lauren Gibbs, Ridgefield Girls Hockey
Terry Lowe, Greenwich Boys Swimming
Steve Norris, Darien Girls Track
Mark Pettorini, Fairfield Boys Hockey

The voting will run from Sunday morning until next Wednesday at noon, so check back and be prepared to vote.
