The Spinnakers just learned, and we're very proud to announce, that our Captain, Marie Madaras, has been selected as a member of the "Second Team All-FCIAC" in recognition of her accomplishments as a member of the Wilton HS varsity soccer team.  This is particularly notable because Marie achieved this honor in soccer while also earning the captaincy of her hockey team during our fall practice season.  Congratulations, Marie.  We're very proud of you!
