Greenwich girls win first-ever Class LL indoor track title

NEW HAVEN — Remember the name Tess Stapleton.

The Fairfield Ludlowe freshman made her state championship track debut on Saturday, taking a first place (long jump), second place (55 hurdles) and third place (high jump) for the Falcons, who finished third as a team at the CIAC Class LL girls indoor track championship.

Greenwich finished the day with 88.5 points to pull away from runner-up Danbury’s 71 over the final three events. Fairfield Ludlowe came in third (56) with Glastonbury (41) and Brien McMahon rounding out the top five.

It was the first-ever state indoor championship for Greenwich, but Stapleton was one of the individual athletes who nearly stole the show.

She opened the day by winning her first event — the long jump.
