Greenwich ‘Parade of Champions’ Date Announced

GREENWICH, CT - Greenwich First Selectman Peter J. Tesei is pleased to announce that a date for a “Parade of Champions,” to honor the accomplishments of the Greenwich High School Cardinal athletic teams has been selected.

The Cardinal football team won the Class LL State Championship decisively this past weekend with a 34-0 triumph over New Canaan High School.

It is the second series of wins for the Greenwich High School athletic program. Earlier this year the Greenwich High School Girls Swimming and Diving Team won the FCIAC championship, the Class LL state championship as well as the State Open championship.

In consultation with Interim School Superintendent Ralph Mayo, interim High School Headmaster Rick Piotrzkowski and GHS Athletic Director Gus Lindine, it has been agreed that a “Parade of Champions” will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 9, 2019. “This is an opportunity to honor the accomplishments of all of our student athletes,” Superintendent Mayo said.

The date was chosen, in part, because warmer, spring weather will ensure the proper fete the athletes deserve, said First Selectman Tesei. Superintendent Mayo said that the parade also will give students the opportunity to include floats that were originally planned for the 2018 Homecoming Parade that was cancelled because of the weather.

The parade will muster on Lafayette Place and march south on Greenwich Avenue to the Board of Education headquarters in the Havemeyer Building, 290 Greenwich Ave. It is there that all of the athletes and their coaches will be honored by Town and School officials.
