After a long list of memorable accomplishments over the past two months, starting next week it is time for you to decide who was the very best of the best. We have selected six outstanding male and eight female finalists for the Ruden Report-Fairfield County Bank FCIAC Spring Male and Female Player of the Year awards.
The winners will receive special custom-made T shirts with the players’ names and uniform numbers on the back.

The six male finalists are:
Andrew Calabrese, Wilton Lacrosse
