HAN FCIAC Winter Sports Preview: Trumbull Eagles
The Trumbull Eagles are a big part of the HAN Network's live winter sports schedule. And we met a lot of the captains and coaches who are leading those teams this season.
The HAN Network was at Trumbull High School on Thursday, Dec. 10, to meet the Eagles during the ninth stop on the HAN Network's winter FCIAC Tour. 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 the season progresses.)
Wrestling makes its HAN Network debut in Trumbull on Wednesday, Jan. 6, when the Eagles host Ridgefield. The girls ice hockey team also has two games on HAN’s winter schedule: Notre Dame-Fairfield at Trumbull on Monday, Jan. 25, and Lauralton Hall at Trumbull on Monday, Feb. 8. The girls basketball team will be featured against Trinity Catholic on Friday, Feb. 12. More games could be added during the season and HAN has exclusive broadcasting rights for all league postseason contests including the cheerleading championships.
Rob Adams, HAN Network's sports director, and Bill Bloxsom, the Trumbull Times sports editor, conducted the interviews of the St. Joseph athletes and coaches who joined us on Thursday, Dec. 9. You can watch all the interviews below:
