GLASTONBURY — Every point Glastonbury kicker Ryan Smith scores this season will have more impact than on the scoreboard. When the ball goes through the uprights off the foot of Smith, money will be donated toward pediatric cancer research. “We strive to our players to become servant/leaders,” first-year Glastonbury head coach Eric Hennessy said. […]
The Glastonbury boys soccer team will begin the season nationally ranked.

It was the fifth state title in […]

GLASTONBURY — From his days playing youth lacrosse all the way up until now, Wilton senior Andrew Calebrese has built his All-America reputation as a fearless goaltender. The Naval Academy recruit is famous (infamous?) for his aggressive play in Fairfield County circles, for sure. And in Wednesday’s Class L lacrosse tournament’s first round, he made […]
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. Darien’s 4-3 loss to Wilton ended the Blue Wave’s run of five-straight FCIAC championships, paving the way for New Canaan […]
For three months, we’ve followed 98 teams’ battle to get to McMahon in mid-June. In a week, we’ll be down to 12. Who’ll be the three celebrating CIAC boys lacrosse titles?
There’s little time to dilly dally. There are league playoff games involving top 10 teams going on the day this poll is being written. So here’s the short of it: No. 2 Ridgefield faces No. 3 New Canaan and No. 1 Darien plays surging, No. 7 Wilton — which toppled No. 8 Staples in the […]
GLASTONBURY — Almost the entire third quarter had elapsed, Glastonbury was dominating possession, but had nothing to show for it. The Tomahawks remained deadlocked with rival Simsbury as the quarter wound down. Then midfielder Chris Consoli saw an opportunity. He pounced on a loose ball in front of his team’s cage and hit the gas. […]
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. The Blue […]

With an impressive, 15-12 comeback win over Fairfield Prep, New Canaan returned to the No. 3 statewide ranking after several weeks away. The Rams, still unbeaten in Connecticut, played Trumbull Tuesday night in preparation for their annually anticipated regular-season grudge match with arch rival and No. 1 Darien at Dunning Field Saturday. Ridgefield, meanwhile, hasn’t […]
Wes Carpenter, Ridgefield: Scored four goals, including the last-minute game-winner, and had two assists in the Tigers’ 12-11 win over Yorktown (N.Y.).

After weeks of volatility, there now seems to be a consensus on, at least, the top three baseball teams in the state as we head into the final couple of weeks of the regular season. Cheshire remained No. 1 for the third-straight week. Same for Staples at No. 2. For the second-straight week, Amity remained […]
It was a busy week in boys lacrosse. New Canaan took to the road and showed Glastonbury who’s boss with an 11-6 victory. Guilford continued its rapid ascent up the standings with a 8-7 victory over Newtown, but were overwhelmed by SCC rival Fairfield Prep on Monday. The Jesuits were coming off a competitive showing […]
Gasp! For the first time this season the baseball poll has the same No. 1 team for two weeks in a row. Cheshire remains the No. 1 team in the poll after winning its only game last week a 5-4 win over Hand. Despite the No. 1 team and No. 2 team (Staples) remaining in […]
The good news: Unbeaten Glastonbury has parked into the No. 4 spot in the latest GameTimeCT Top 10 Boys Lacrosse Poll. The bad news: The Tomahawks did so at the expense of state powerhouse New Canaan, which dropped to No. 5 as a result. The Rams will invade Glastonbury Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. to figure […]

Darien, which pulled away from Ridgefield with eight-consecutive goals in last Friday’s 14-6 victory, is off to yet another scorching start and remained the consensus No. 1 in the Week 2 GameTimeCT Boys Lacrosse Top 10 Poll, published before games were played Tuesday. Ridgefield didn’t fall from its spot at No. 2. Neither did New […]

MADISON — Glastonbury’s boys lacrosse team doesn’t need reminding about how last season ended. The Tomahawks have reached the state semifinals in three of the last four years. Every time, they were sent packing by the eventual champions, Darien in 2015 and 2017 and, last year, by Ridgefield. Last year’s semifinal vs. Ridgefield, of course, […]
