The FCIAC championships will be Thursday at Floyd Little Athletic Center in New Haven beginning at 4:30.

Danbury girls, who finished either 1st or 2nd in the in the FCIACs every year by one from 2001-2011 have reemerged as a power and took the last two FCIAC crowns.  But if they want to go for a three-peat, they will have to go through a strong Greenwich team led by All American 800m runner, Emily Philippides.

Philippides is entered as the top seed in the 600m and 1000m, where she holds the FCIAC record and is also entered in the 1600m.  While normally this would be an impossible triple, with 42 entrants in those longer events, there may be enough rest time to pull it off.  

Also in the Cardinals' arsenal is junior Jordan Numme who is the top seed in the 300m, Olivia DiLascia who is tied for the top seed in the high jump and Lia Zavattaro the defending FCIAC champion in the pole vault.  To potentially add to their point totals they also have the top seed in all four relays. 

The defending champion Hatters will be led by distance runner Lauren Moore who is the top seed in the 3200m and #2 in the 1600m, and senior Celyna Custodio who has the farthest throw in the shot put by 7 feet.  Their relays are also strong and with Philippides not running the relays (or only one) for Greenwich, the Hatters will hope to make up some ground in those events.  

Another great battle to watch for will be between freshmen Tess Stapleton of Ludlowe and St. Joseph's Nia Christie.  Stapleton is the top seed in the long jump, #2 in the hurdle and #3 in the high jump.  Her middle school rival Christie is the top seed in the high jump, #4 in the hurdles and #5 in the long jump.  This will be the first chapter of a rivalry that will go on from years to come.   

Live results of the FCIAC Championships will be on Paynes Corner Timing
