HAN FCIAC Winter Sports Preview: Wilton Warriors
The Wilton girls basketball team shocked Connecticut when they won the state championship last year. Many of those players are back this season with a new head coach. That is just one of the many stories we found when the HAN Cruiser visited Wilton High School on Friday, Dec. 11.
Wilton was the 14th 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 as the season progresses.)
The Warriors boys basketball game against rival Ridgefield will be featured live on the HAN Network on Tuesday, Jan. 26. 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 Tim Murphy, The Wilton Bulletin sports editor, conducted the interviews of the Danbury athletes and coaches who joined us on Friday, Dec. 11. You can watch all the interviews below:

Wilton Football Recap
During our visit to Wilton High School before the fall season, the football team was playing in a scrimmage. So we talked with a couple captains to recap the 2015 season on the gridiron.
