Football Week 2 and other leftovers

on
I went 3-1 with my picks. The only game I got wrong was Weston’s first win over ND in more than 10 years. Who knew? Ridgefield 45, Ludlowe 0. This result is interesting. I’m not sure whether it is an indictment of Ludlowe or proof of Ridgefield’s running prowess. It’s probably both. But either way, […] [Read More]

I can honestly say that I don’t even know where Griswold High School is. Although, upon further inspection, it appears that it is […] [Read More]

Week 1 football recap

on
Wow. I know I’ve said that a lot over the course of my tenure here, but I think the drubbing that Fairfield’s four high schools took this weekend can not be overstated. Only Fairfield Prep was ever in the game. Hell, only Fairfield Prep scored double digit points in its respective opening game. The two […] [Read More]

My biggest broadcasting pet peeves

on
The more that I watch sports on TV, the more I realize that people on TV are incapable of talking. Trust me, I know that it is not easy to talk on the spot. Sometimes it isn’t even easy to write on the spot. And with TV personalities constantly multitasking, it makes it harder. However, […] [Read More]

Fall sports schedules-Girls volleyball

However, both public teams have promoted assistants as head coaches in 2010. For Ludlowe Chris Skelton will be the new coach, for Warde, Matt […] [Read More]

Fall sports schedules- Field hockey

on
Field hockey is a growing sport in Fairfield, as both local teams made the state playoffs a year ago. Warde reached the FCIAC playoffs as well. The Mustangs got off to a hot start and reached FCIACs for the first time ever. Ludlowe missed those playoffs by just one game. Without further ado, here are […] [Read More]

Fall Sports Schedules: Girls soccer

on
The girl soccer teams in Fairfield are probably the best programs in the town. Warde’s team is only three years removed from a state title. Ludlowe’s went to the state and FCIAC semfinals, and have loftier goals in mind for 2010. Without further ado, the girls soccer schedules for 2010 of the three teams in […] [Read More]
