STAMFORD — Christina Joannou’s time clock is atypical of the average high school senior.
During the spring, as the starting pitcher for the Stamford softball team, Joannou is up early for Sunday morning practices. In the months leading up to the season, some of Joannou’s Saturday nights end not long before her current workouts begin.
Joannou embraces her heritage going to what is known as Bouzoukia, a term for nightclubs that feature Greek music and dancing. Sometimes attending with her parents, or brother Sam and his friends, Joannou went to the regular social gatherings, occasionally traveling to Norwalk or more often to Flushing in New York.
