State Representatives John Frey (R-111) and Michael Ferguson (R-138) joined State Senator Toni Boucher (R-26) in welcoming the 2018 State Champion Ridgefield High School girls soccer team to the state Capitol in Hartford. The Ridgefield delegation proudly introduced the Tigers players to their colleagues on the floor of the House of Representatives. Later, they presented them with a state citation in honor of their triumphant 2-1 win over Staples HS in the Division I State Championship game – the first in program history for Tigers girls’ soccer.
“This was a historic season for the Ridgefield High School girls' soccer team,” said Rep. Frey, who was a member of Ridgefield High School’s Class of 1981. “Under the direction of Head Coach Iain Golding and Assistant Coach Adam Sebastian, the girls entered the season with high expectations, coming off back-to-back seasons in which they won FCIAC championships and advanced to the state championship game only to come up short against Glastonbury both times. This season they were committed to re-writing the final chapter. For the graduating seniors, the state championship was the perfect ending to their four years in the program in which the Tigers amassed an overall record of 68 wins, 14 losses, and nine draws, claimed two FCIAC Conference titles and played in three consecutive state title games.”
