Greenwich girls swimming team edges Wilton

GREENWICH — Monday’s meet between Greenwich and Wilton featured the defending State Open girls swimming champion and a team that finished among the top-10, and it certainly showed with how impressive both squads were.

In a competitive, early-season meet reminiscent of a postseason matchup, the Cardinals and Warriors produced one standout performance after another, but in the end, it was last season’s title-winner that emerged victorious.

Defending State Open and Class LL champion Greenwich needed all the points it could get to edge a strong Wilton squad, 98-88, before a big crowd at Greenwich High School.

Now the Cardinals are relying on five experienced seniors and one sensational sophomore to help continue their reign of supremacy in the conference and state.
