NEW CANAAN — The Ridgefield boys cross country team followed through on its status as a favorite when it captured the FCIAC Central Region championship on Wednesday.
In fact, the biggest obstacle between the Tigers and a title likely came off the course during the past two weeks.
“On Friday, we didn’t think we’d be allowed to race,” senior Chuckie Namiot said, referring to Ridgefield schools having shifted to remote learning in late October, putting all sports teams on the sidelines. “We were out all of last week and got back to school on Monday. Everything’s been changing really fast, so it meant a lot to actually get here.”
