If you asked me what my fondest memories are from high school, I guarantee that more than half are from playing for the Wilton High School basketball program. Had this been five, six years ago, some might be confused by my answer, considering that the team was hardly winning enough games to be eligible for the postseason, and basketball was not a priority for Wilton athletes in comparison to programs experiencing consistent success, like lacrosse and field hockey.
In fact, I will never forget the first night of my first year as a member of the team. After winning the freshmen game and then being thrown into the fire in a heated junior varsity matchup, I then took my place on the bench for our varsity team against Fairfield Warde. We lost, 89-42.
