Here’s a look at some of the headlines from this week’s Ridgefield Press:

  • It was a big week — and still is — for Ridgefield High School athletics. Four teams advanced to the state semifinals last weekend, with the games being played throughout the week. Boys volleyball won its semifinal contest Monday, girls lacrosse advanced Tuesday night in a thriller. Boys lacrosse and baseball were set to play Wednesday. This week's paper covers the past week in sports — a historic one for the spring programs.
  • A new club — The Ridgefield Fathers Club — is meeting on the first Thursday of every month with the goal of creating fun outings for dads who want to make new friends. The first event was held at the Prospector Theater last month where the group went to go see 'Solo: A Star Wars Story.' Next up? Rock climbing? A family barbecue? Wine tours? The world is their oyster. Read more on page 8.
