When the FCIAC football coaches meet together in two weeks for the first time, it was suggested committee chairman Doug Marchetti come equipped with nametags.
RIDGEFIELD — Rachel Bodner is certain she has had a better summer than her Ridgefield High School friends, particularly those that traveled a few hours away to common vacation spots.
GREENWICH — If there was a contest to find the most refreshingly unique FCIAC athlete for the last school year, Tara Ford would be difficult to beat.
Consider: Ford, who graduated from Greenwich in June, had three free periods at the end of her senior year and voluntary decided to take two AP courses, in economics and psychology, even though she had no experience in either subject. She does not have a driver’s license so she walks to many places (fortunately she lives close to downtown). Ford spent so much time studying as a junior that a lack of sleep related to her puncturing a lung.
