Lost among all the conclusions to state tournaments and end-of-school-year activities were a pair of pretty significant moves involving two people, in two different capacities, who have had a significant impact on high school sports in Stamford and leave big voids to fill.
Class L and FCIAC champion Darien had three players named to the All-American in girls lacrosse, while Class M winner New Canaan had two starters honored, part of eight FCIAC players earned the recognition.
Katie Cronin, Chandler Kirby and Laura Murphy were selected from Darien in Class L, while Catherine Granito and Sami Stewart were picked in Class M. They were joined by Class L players Eva Greco and and Paisley Eagan from Wilton and Fairfield Ludlowe’s Regan Steed.

Still, there are stories to be written before we close the books. Some thoughts.
