One sign of the Ridgefield High girls basketball team’s progression last winter came in its two contests against Fairfield Warde. In the second game of the regular season, the Tigers lost to Warde by 20 points. When the teams met again, in the conference quarterfinals, Warde needed a fourth-quarter surge to edge Ridgefield by five points.
“I’m hoping we can begin this year where we left off last season,” said Ridgefield head coach Tom DiMarzo. “We had such a young team last year that we were basically starting from scratch.”
