The Greenwich High School cheerleading team took center stage Saturday afternoon at the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference championship meet, held at Fairfield Warde High School.

The Lady Cardinals finished the event third overall out of 16 teams competing, netting 158.5 points.

“My girls did awesome today,” Greenwich High School head coach MaryAnne Catalano said. “We only had one bobble and our degree of difficulty was right there. However I guess today wasn’t our day. We worked really hard and worked really well together as a team. We did expect to place higher, but I guess we are going to have to work harder to prepare for states.”

Host team Fairfield Warde took top honors, winning the FCIAC championship with 160.3 points. In close second was Trumbull High School with 160 points. In the team co-ed division, Stamford High School claimed the conference championship.

Individually, captain Taylor Ingraham was honored prior to the announcement of team point, as the GHS senior was one of the girls named to the All-FCIAC team for her stellar stunting performance a day earlier.
“I am so happy for Taylor and she really deserves it,” Catalano said. “She’s a really strong athlete and a strong captain. She did an amazing job. I couldn’t be more proud of her.”

One of the reasons Big Red was able to claim another top three performance in FCIACs was its ability to work as a team, both during practices and in competitions.

“We came together the last two weeks and really had some awesome practices,” Catalano said. “They looked great.”

Greenwich will be back in action on March 8 when they travel to the New Haven Athletic Center for competition in the CIAC class LL championship.
