A glance at the record suggests this wasn’t the dominant, unbeatable Darien boys lacrosse team that the Blue Wave have sometimes been at times the past few seasons. And that’s probably fair. The record also probably suggests it wasn’t a special season, and that’s probably unfair. Even at 17-5, with the most losses in a […]
It was announced Monday that for the fifth consecutive season, the FCIAC and the SCC will play each other in one game for the next two seasons in baseball.

Welcome to the Long-Stick Podcast: State Playoff Edition. Based on Wilton’s 4-3 upset over No. 1 Darien in the FCIAC semifinals alone, it was a pretty insane league championship week in boys lacrosse. It settled down, somewhat, with New Fairfield’s dominant SWC title victory and Fairfield Prep’s SCC championship, which were sandwiched around New Canaan’s […]
A wild week in Connecticut boys lacrosse has resulted in some adjustments, but not enough to drop Darien from the top spot in the latest GameTimeCT Top 10 poll as the state tournaments get underway.

If there were any doubts about Darien’s pedigree as the No. 1 CIAC team in Connecticut — and there hasn’t been with voters — the Blue Wave cemented their status as the team to beat heading into the final week of the boys lacrosse season when they demolished rival New Canaan, 12-4, Saturday.

Darien lost in the regular season for the first time in 54 games on Saturday. But it was to Manhasset (N.Y.) on Long Island, 10-5, and it had zero effect on this week’s GameTimeCT Top 10 Boys Lacrosse rankings. The Blue Wave, undefeated in Connecticut heading into Tuesday afternoon’s game vs. Fairfield Warde, remained No. […]
