With winter weather in full swing now, so too are winter sports at the high school. Many fall and spring athletes are training and making the transition to indoor track, wrestling practices have begun, and the sport that arguably gets the most attention along with hockey, Wilton basketball, is finally here. There already are numerous pre-season reports and projections from local writers and bloggers, but let me give you my perspective, coming from a Wilton High School student, and a friend of many of the players.
This year’s roster is full of seniors, all of whom have worked exceptionally hard to get to where they are. I expect big things from them, as the basketball program over the past few years has only been trending up. The players have great chemistry, most of whom have played together since a very young age, and there is a level of accountability and camaraderie on this Warrior team that other FCIAC rosters do not possess.
