Greenwich Country Day School’s Boys Varsity Lacrosse team took home the Fairchester Athletic Association Championship on Thursday in the finals against Greens Farms Academy, with a score of 11 to 8.
“I could not be more proud of our Boys Varsity Lacrosse team and the culture Coach Copelan and his staff have built,” GCDS Director of Athletics Tim Helstein said. “The team played the championship game with poise and passion. The icing on the cake was that the seniors on this team joined at its inception just four years ago, believing in our vision for the Upper School, and helping us to build this program. Now, that vision has come to fruition with the lifting of the FAA Tournament Championship Trophy. Congratulations to all who were involved in making this season such a success.”
The GCDS Boys Varsity Lacrosse program’s inaugural year was during the Coronavirus Pandemic, shutting down programs for the spring 2020 season.
The team was not deterred, playing, practicing, and training within the COVID guidelines, they were ready to take on the league in 2021 with a 4-7 record, and then came back strong during the 2022 season with a 7-5 record.
The GCDS Boys Varsity Lacrosse team wins the FAA Championship this year with an 11-4 record for the season.
Head Coach Andy Copelan said, “I love this team, our seniors, this school, and the ascent of our program. To steal a line from Michigan athletics, ‘Those who stay will be champions’.”
