Field hockey

Wilton Varsity Field Hockey Team is still in the running for a CIAC Class L State Championship Title. The No. 2-seeded Warriors, who finished the regular season with a stellar 16-1-1 record, will face the sixth seed New Canaan in the semi-finals tonight Tuesday, November 15 at Norwalk High School.

To get here, Wilton mastered Trumbull 7-1 in the first round, and excluded Ridgefield 5-0 in the quarter-finals. If they make it to the final, they will take the top seed You’re welcome or fourth seed Glastonbury at Weathersfield on Saturday November 19.

Volleyball

Wilton’s varsity volleyball team had a very good year, ending 14-6 and ranked 13th in CIAC’s LL class. But the team’s regular season ended on a shocking and emotional note – both senior captains were injured. Center Caitlin Allen (second team fully FCIAC) badly sprained his ankle in practice just a day before the team’s final game, and outside hitter Kendall Scholz (first team All-FCIAC) broke his hand in that same game. The team had to adjust to the FCIACs with two junior college players called up and some on-court position adjustments to face FCIAC second-placed Trumbull – a team Wilton beat for the first time in years earlier in the season. This year. Their level of play was extraordinary considering their two best players were out and there was a whole other flow on the court, but they were down 0-3 sets. Allen returned to the court for the first round of the CIAC State Championships on Tuesday, November 8, where Wilton faced Staples, another team they had beaten in the regular season. Despite winning the first set, Wilton’s 2022 season ended with a 1-3 finish in the game.
