The New Canaan softball team had never won an FCIAC playoff game before Monday. On Thursday afternoon, the Rams won their first-ever league championship in the sport, a well-played 2-1 victory over top-seeded St. Joseph.
Cydney Ventura pitched a seven-hit shutout and allowed just one unearned run. She was named the most valuable player. Danielle Simoneau, 20 years after winning an FCIAC championship pitching for Westhill, won one as a coach.
