The Darien travel A basketball teams, sponsored by the Darien YMCA, fared very well in the recent Fairfield County Basketball League tournaments. The FCBL is a 250-team league, including travel teams from every town within Fairfield County, and about two dozen teams from beyond the county’s borders (see FCBLhoops.org).

After three months of regular season play that starts in December, the FCBL splits each boys and girls grade into tournament pools of peer groups. Seven (of eight) Darien A teams received bids into the league’s highest level tournament pools for their grade.

Darien’s eighth grade boys entered the top pool as the sixth seed (out of 51 teams) and ran the table, beating New Castle of Westchester County 60-51 in the championship game.

The seventh grade boys entered their top pool as the seventh seed (out of 42 teams), and fell one basket short, losing 64-63 to Fairfield in the championship game.

The sixth grade girls, as the No. 3 seed (out of 26 teams), lost 21-16 to Newtown in their championship game.

The eighth grade girls (No. 3 seed), seventh grade girls (No.5 seed), sixth grade boys (No. 2 seed) were beaten in preliminary rounds, but all by their tournament’s ultimate champion.
