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 […]

FINE PERFORMANCES Annie Acquavita, Cheshire: Acquavita passed the 100-goal mark for her career when she netted five in Cheshire’s 22-9 win over Branford on Tuesday. She also had two assists to give her seven points in the game. Cameryn Antler, Mercy: The senior netted seven goals as Mercy defeated Lauralton Hall, 16-10. Mia Carbone had […]
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 […]

The preseason had a slightly different feeling for the Darien girls lacrosse team this spring.
For the first time in six years, the Blue Wave didn’t have a state championship to defend, having lost to rival…
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 […]
MIDDLETOWN — A chorus of screams greeted Dominique Highsmith’s screaming line drive into the gap, and what followed was the sound of victory.
Highsmith drove a 2-1 pitch to right-center and circled the base…
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, […]
For the first time since 2013, Darien’s boys lacrosse program didn’t finish the season No. 1. A 9-8 upset by FCIAC rival Ridgefield in last year’s Class L championship game ended Darien’s four-year run as state champions, not to mention a 76-game win streak. Despite that loss, and despite losing a class of talented players […]

NEW HAVEN — He was everywhere on the ice at Ingalls Rink on Monday night in the Division II boys hockey final, so it seemed only right that Robbie Lionetti took one more lap. On his own after Branford’s 2-0 win over Glastonbury to secure the school’s second state championship, Lionetti skated to the far […]
ROCKY HILL — This is the time of year when a hockey team’s depth comes to the fore, when a third forward line or a third defense pair can mean the difference between glory and a quick exit from the CIAC Division II boys ho…
No. 4 Branford (18-3-4)

Prior to Thursday’s State Open Swimming Championships, Greenwich coach Terry Lowe said his team had to produce a perfect meet in order to win another title.
Well, the Cardinals captured yet another State Op…
The high school boys swimming season concludes Thursday with the CIAC State Open Championships. Here’s a look at the much-anticipated final competition of the season.

NEW HAVEN — It wasn’t like their regular-season meetings, but playoff hockey shouldn’t bear resemblance to regular-season hockey. It should be like Tuesday night’s CIAC Division II boys semifinal, a combination of the scrappy and the beautiful. Justin Hazard tied it for Glastonbury with a beauty with 48.5 seconds left, then won it straight off […]
HARTFORD — Every point counts when history is on the line.
