The FCIAC released the 2021 All-FCIAC Girls Lacrosse Awards and five Greenwich High School athletes received all-conference accolades.

Grace Collier, who recently concluded an impressive senior season for the Cardinals, earned All-FCIAC Second Team recognition as a midfielder. Collier, who will continue her lacrosse career at Williams College next season, was a key goal-scorer and playmaker throughout the season for Greenwich, which registered a record of 10-7 and advanced to the quarterfinal-round of the CIAC Class L Tournament, where it lost to Class L finalist Fairfield Ludlowe.

Displaying leadership throughout the season, Collier also served as one of the Cardinals’ captains.

Greenwich junior Noey Johnson received All-FCIAC Second Team honors as a defender, but Johnson aided the team at all areas of the field and was one of the Cardinals’ standout midfielders. She helped spark the team offensively and like Collier, helped the squad gain significant possessions throughout the season.

Johnson will be among the players that will form a strong nucleus for the Cardinals’ 2022 team.

Emma Abbazia (No. 27) was chosen as a member of the All-FCIAC Second Team.

Emma Abbazia burst onto the varsity scene as a freshman for the Cardinals. She made an immediate impact, igniting the team from her attack position with clutch goals the first several games of the season and continued her torrid scoring pace throughout the spring.

Abbazia, who will be one of the players to watch in the FCIAC next season, was named to the All-FCIAC Second Team as an attack. Senior Delaney Roth, who will play lacrosse at William & Mary next season, received Honorable Mention recognition by the FCIAC.

An attack, Roth helped spark Greenwich’s offense and also impressively filled the role as one of the team’s captains. Sophomore MK Savio, also received Honorable Mention accolades. Savio emerged as an exceptional defender in her first varsity season and will be a mainstay at her position for the next two seasons.
