Girls track: Trumbull's Baker, Switzable earn FCIAC titles
Trumbull High’s Nicole Baker and Megan Switzable captured individual titles at the FCIAC girls track and field championships held in Danbury on May 24.
Baker took first in the discus with a throw of 113-11.
Switzable’s high jump of 5-02 won the title, as she joined Baker on the All-FCIAC squad.

With the boys championship run separately for the first time, the spacing between events quickened to test the mettle of all competitors.
