Top-ranked Darien, who remains No. 1 in the state coaches girls lacrosse poll, was pushed by Wilton but still prevailed in the FCIAC Tournament championship game with a 11-10 decision over the Warriors. With the strong performance in the FCIAC Tournament that included a semifinal win over New Canaan, Wilton moved up to No. 2 with New Canaan slipping one notch to No. 3.
In the Southern Connecticut Conference title game, No. 5 Hand beat No. 6 Cheshire, 12-10 to win the SCC Tournament for the fourth straight year. The other change in the top 10 this week was Fairfield Warde moving up one spot to No. 8 with Branford slipping to No. 9.
New Fairfield (16-3), the top seeded team in Class S and the defending Class S state champion, did receive some votes this week — the only Class S team to receive votes. As it has been most of the season, seven of the top 10 teams are from the FCIAC with the top four from that league.
