Greenwich High varsity athletics effected by Thursday’s snow

Thursday’s massive amount of snow, slush, ice, rain and winds that caused issues throughout most of the Northeast also forced several events to be moved around for Greenwich High School.

This weekend, Greenwich High was scheduled to take part in the Joe Sikorski FCIAC Wrestling Tournament, however Thursday’s snowstorm delayed the start of matches from later today to Saturday morning. Matches are now slated to get underway at 9 .m. at New Canaan High School and will run all day. The weight class finals are still planned for 6:30 p.m.

Big Red has several athletes that are expecting great things at FCIACs. In the 106-pound weight class, Brandon Aguda comes into FCIACs with a 23-6 record and has the fourth seed. Meanwhile, Alex Margeotes will also be a No. 4 seed and will be taking a 23-7 record into the 113-pound weight class.

Competing in the 126-pound weight class will be Michael Ceci, as his 16-13 regular season record earned him the No. 5 seed at FCIACs. Not to be outdone is Alex Jarombek, as the GHS grappler ended the season with a 19-2 record and picked up the fifth seed in the 132-pound weight class.

Jack Stevens will be entering the 145-pound weight class as the seventh seed, as the GHS wrestler finished the regular season 8-7 overall. At 160 will be Daniel Gutman, as he starts competition tomorrow as the sixth seed in the 160-pound weight class and netted a 10-12 regular season record.

Looking to grab gold will be Jack Freheit in the highly-competitive 152-pound division, as he enters FCIACs as a second seed and has a 24-8 record. Another GHS grappler, Justin Montier, will be looking for a championship match at FCIACs, as he will enter the 170-pound weight class as the third-seed overall and grabbed a 21-7 regular season record.

Another third seed will be Chris Fischer in the heavyweight division, as he takes his 27-5 record into FCIACs and will be looking to score high points for Big Red.

Not to be outdone is Thomas Williams in the 182-pound weight class, as he will take a 19-10 regular season record into FCIACs as the fourth seed.

While the FCIAC wrestling tournament will be taking place on Saturday, another had their championship moved. The Greenwich High School boys and girls indoor track teams, a week after a highly-successful Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference class LL championship, will be taking to the same New Haven Athletic Center field house on Monday at 3 p.m. for competition in the CIAC State Open championship meet.

During the class LL championship meet, Greenwich High’s Austin Longi captured the gold medal in the 55-meter dash, crossing the finish line with a time of 6.75 seconds. At Opens, Longi is expecting another championship.

Stephan DeCarlo also had a meet to remember, as his distance of 20’09” 1/4 was good enough for second place overall in the long jump. Competing in the pole vault at LLs, Thomas Chessman took home fourth in the pole vault, netting a height of 11’06”.

For the girls team, Sarah Cicchetti took home the bronze in the class LL meet during the shot put with a distance of 34’02” 1/2.

In addition, the 4×400-meter relay team of Erica Hvolbeck, Caroline Frey, Jenny Goggin and Anna Black took home fifth overall, netting a time of 4:12.31. Not to be outdone was the 4×800-meter relay team of Mia Bonanno, Daryl Kennedy, Goggin and Amy Wyle, as they also took fifth place at the class LL meet with a time of 10:09.86.

The Greenwich High School basketball team also had to move its game, originally scheduled for tonight at 7 against Brien McMahon High School. Big Red will make up the game against the Senators tomorrow at 12:30 p.m.

In Big Red’s previous hoops game, the Cardinals and Bridgeport Central High School, the top two teams in FCIACs, met up in Bridgeport. However, it was the home team that came away with the victory, as Greenwich ended its perfect season with a 53-45 defeat to the Hilltoppers.

CJ Byrd led Big Red, as he finished with 17 points. Alex Wolf added 13 points, while Griffing Golden added five.
