FCIAC Playoff Updates

Darien heads to the FCIAC Baseball Semifinals. Darien beat Danbury in the quarterfinals 8-2. Darien is seeded 3rd. Staples is rated No. 1.
In Boys lacrosse, No. 1 ranked Darien scorched Trumbull 19-3 and will face now face Wilton in the semi-finals.
The Girls lacross team is also ranked No. 1 in the FCIAC. They also played Trumbull, creaming them at 20-2.  Darien faces off against Wilton in the semis. 


Darien lacrosse went to 12 – 3 as they easily defeated the New Canaan Rams May 11 on their home field at Dunning Stadium. The Wave held the Rams scoreless for the first 32 minutes before winning 12 – 4 and securing the top seed in the FCIAC.


Lacrosse coach Jeff Brameier, classmate Mary Lou Brameier Anderson’s brother, recently coached his 600th winning game. The game, against Wilton, was tied at 2-2 before Darien poured in nine unanswered goals eventually winning 18-6.

Brameier, who has coached the Wave since 1984, has a record of 600-134 for a winning percentage of .817 and the most wins for a coach ever in CT.

Darien (6-1) and currently ranked No. 1 in CT is battling back from its first loss of the season, 10-5 to Manhasset on Saturday.


The Blue Wave boys tennis team is starting the season strong and currently 7–0. The Wave has beaten perennial powerhouse Greenwich and most recently Wilton. Darien is up against some tough competition in the FCIAC, as Staples, last year’s champs, is  7 – 0 and the 2018 runner-up, rival New Canaan, is now 8 – 0.


The Darien boys lacrosse team kicks off the 2019 season on April 2. For the first time in five years, the Blue Wave will not be defending state champions.

This upcoming season will be Coach Jeff Brameier’s 36th season.  This years games against Seton Hall Prep (April 27) and St. Anthony’s (April 28) will be featured on ESPN3 and ESPNU.

The DHS girls lacrosse team for the first time in six years will not be defending a state title. Darien’s impressive streak of five straight Class L crowns ended in 2018 with a 12-11 loss to rival New Canaan in the state semifinals.

Darien moved up to Class L in 2013 and had reeled off 22 straight wins in state-tournament play until that semifinal loss last spring.

What’s more, the Blue Wave also saw its amazing 107-game winning streak against in-state opponents come to a crashing halt.

This year should prove different!
