HAN FCIAC Winter Sports Preview: Danbury Hatters
Through a thick December morning fog, the HAN Cruiser found Danbury High School and many enthusiastic winter sports captains.
A thick fog was over the region that Friday, Dec. 11, morning. The HAN Network's 12th stop on the Winter FCIAC Tour was spent clearing up what's in store for the Hatters this season.
We've traveled to all 17 league schools in December to interview the winter captains and coaches before we start our second full season of live high school sports broadcasts in southwestern Connecticut.
The tour started on Monday afternoon, Dec. 7, at Darien High School and concluded on Tuesday, Dec. 15, in Greenwich — the 17th school on the tour. You can check out the other interviews at this page or on our YouTube Channel. We'll be posting all the interviews — about 150 — this week.
You can follow the HAN Network broadcast team’s trip through the county on the HAN Network Twitter feed or by searching and using the hashtags, #FCIACtour and #HANcruiser.
There are nearly 30 games on HAN’s winter schedule that include eight sports: Boys and girls ice hockey, boys and girls basketball, wrestling, gymnastics, boys swimming and indoor track. You can check out the winter schedule at this link. (Note: It is subject to change as the season progresses.)
The Danbury boys basketball team will be part of the basketball premiere on the HAN Network in January. The Hatters travel to Norwalk to take on the Bears in boys basketball on Thursday, Jan. 7. The girls basketball team will be featured against Fairfield Warde on Friday, Jan. 29. More games could be added during the season and HAN has exclusive broadcasting rights for all league postseason contests including the cheerleading championships.
