BOYS HOCKEY FALLS TO AMITY REGIONAL IN STATE QUARTERFINALS

VIKINGS FADE DOWN THE STRETCH

The Westhill/Stamford co-op boys hockey team fell to Amity Regional in Saturday's state D-II quarterfinals round, dropping a hard-fought, and heart-breaking battle 3-2 in overtime.  Despite leading most of the game, Amity was able to score twice in the last couple of minutes of regulation, forcing the overtime.  The loss brought what has been an outstanding season for the boys to an end.  The team, which entered the tournament with a regular season record of 17-2-1, entered the tournament as the number 4 seed. 

STAMFORD-WESTHILL-STAPLES GIRLS HOCKEY CO-OP FALLS TO NEW CANAAN IN STATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

GIRLS GO TOE-TO-TOE WITH NEW CANAAN BUT FALL IN SEASON FINALE

Following an outstanding season, which saw the team post a 14-5 regular-season record, the fourth-seeded SWS co-op earned its way to a shot at the state title, putting up a great effort before finally falling 3-0 to #2 seed New Canaan at the M&T Arena at Quinnipiac University in Hamden.  The girls skated basically even with New Canaan for the entire game, trailing 1-0 as the game entered the last period.  New Canaan scored again early in the third period to make SWS's comeback attempt a bit more challenging, going up 2-0.  The final goal was an empty-netter with 1:27 left as SWS pulled their goalie in an effort to get an extra player on the offensive end of the ice.

Despite falling short in the finals, the coaches and the girls have a lot to be proud of, and to build off of for next year.  Their regular season wins included a victory over defending state champion Darien as the teams split a pair of regular-season games.  They also earned their trip to the program's first state championship game by taking down top-seeded Darien for a second time this season, winning 2-0 in the semi-final round.  With 19 freshman and sophomores on the team's 24 person roster, the team has a lot to look forward to as they look ahead to the 2024-25 season.

 

DISTRICT POLICY REGARDING CAPTAINS PRACTICES

Message Regarding Captain’s Practices

As a reminder, Stamford Public Schools and the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) do not permit or support captain’s practices. Per the CIAC 2020-2021 Handbook, a captain’s practice is defined as below:

4.5.D. CAPTAIN’S PRACTICE (DEFINITION) The term “Captain’s Practice” usually means the team’s captain organizing and conducting practice sessions for that sport without adult supervision. The CIAC does not in any way sanction, encourage or condone “Captain’s Practice” in any sport. “Captain’s Practice,” depending on the member school’s involvement, may be a clear violation of eligibility rule II.D. (seasons limitations) or certainly a violation of the spirit of Rule II.D.

Also No. Rule 2.1.c. states: Member schools may not organize or permit coaches to organize, supervise or operate athletic practice which includes captain’s practices.

If you have questions, regarding this information, please contact your Athletic Director.
