HAN FCIAC winter sports previews: Darien Blue Wave
Before starting our live winter sports coverage, the HAN Network set out on another voyage through Fairfield County to meet the captains and coaches of the winter sports teams at all 17 FCIAC schools.
The tour started on Monday afternoon, Dec. 7, at Darien High School and is scheduled to conclude on Tuesday, Dec. 15, in Greenwich. 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.)
