Greenwich High girls swim, boys soccer, girls volleyball teams battling in FCIACs today

The Greenwich High School athletic department will be quite busy today, as both the boys soccer and girls swim teams will be fighting for FCIAC gold and the girls volleyball team will be competing in the FCIAC semifinals.

At 4 p.m. today at the GHS pool, the Lady Cardinals will participate in the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference swimming championships. Once again it will be a tough battle for Greenwich, as a plethora of other teams like Darien, New Canaan, Wilton and Ridgefield will be looking to grab the top spot.

Yesterday afternoon, the FCIAC diving championships took place at Westhill High School. Big Red had one diver in the top 10, as Ines Villemure finished 10th overall with a total of 297.20 points.

Overall, Westhill/Stamford’s Rachel Burston won the title with 423.15 points. New Canaan’s Kylie Towbin place second with 415.25 points. Trinity Catholic’s Shannon Daine grabbed the bronze with 329.55 points.

A couple of hours after the FCIAC swimming finals kicks off, the Greenwich High School boys soccer team has some unfinished business to take care of. After falling short of a spot in the FCIAC championship game last season, the Cardinals, top-seeded in the FCIAC tourney, didn’t let that happen again this time around.

Big Red will battle second-seed Ridgefield High School in the FCIAC title game tonight at Norwalk High’s Sam Testa Field. Game time is slated for 7 p.m. In order to get to the finals, Greenwich started the tournament by upending Norwalk High School 4-1.

Trailing 2-1 in the FCIAC semifinals to Wilton High School, Greenwich tied the game with 19:20 left and broke the game open by scoring three goals in five minutes to upend the Warriors 5-2.

Ridgefield also had an easy time in the FCIAC semis, blitzing Stamford High School, 5-1.

The Greenwich High School girls volleyball will also be in action today.

After blanking Fairfield Warde High School, 3-0 (25-14, 25-11, 25-22), the Lady Cardinals advanced to the FCIAC semifinals, and will battle No. 4 seed Fairfield Ludlowe High School.

In the FCIAC opening round, the Falcons also came away with an easy victory, beating Ridgefield High School, 3-1 (25-22 , 25-16, 13-25, 25-12). The FCIAC semis will be played at Fairfield Ludlowe High School starting at 5 and Greenwich will be looking for revenge, as FLHS is the lone conference team to beat GHS in the regular season.

In the other FCIAC semifinal game, No. 2 seeded Staples High School will be playing third-seed Darien High School at 7 p.m.

The winners of the FCIAC semis will compete in the FCIAC championship game, played Saturday at 4 at Fairfield Ludlowe High School.
