GREENWICH — Newtown High School’s girls’ lacrosse team put forth another great effort against a tough FCIAC school but, again, came up just a little bit short. The Nighthawks fell 16-14 at rainy Greenwich in the first round of the Class L state tournament on May 28.

NEW FAIRFIELD — Looking to make it nine straight South-West Conference tournament wins, Newtown High School’s girls’ lacrosse team won its SWC Division I semifinal round clash with New Milford, 15-10, on the turf at New Fairfield High on May 21.

A big part of the reason Maura Fletcher, coach of the Newtown High School girls’ lacrosse team, schedules ultracompetitive, nonconference battles is wins like the two Newtown had this past week. The Nighthawks sandwiched a hard-fought 7-6 loss to Wilton out of the FCIAC on May 4 with a pair of lopsided wins over South-West Conference foes Notre Dame-Fairfield and Pomperaug of Southbury.

It nearly ended only a few times along the way. There was a nail-biting outcome here or there, including some conference tournament battles, but the Newtown High School girls’ lacrosse team always found a way to keep its winning ways against South-West Conference opponents alive. Finally, after nearly seven full seasons, and parts of eight campaigns, of SWC dominance, the Nighthawks tasted defeat at the hands of a conference foe.

Maura Fletcher schedules tough out-of-conference games to challenge her Newtown High School girls’ lacrosse team, which, for the most part, has dominated the South-West Conference competition through the years.
The coach of the eight-time SWC champions hasn’t lost an in-conference battle — regular or postseason — since 2006. When it comes to nonconference clashes, however, Fletcher’s Nighthawks have had a combination of success and struggles in the regular campaign and state tournament.
