Seven Greenwich High School athletes received All-FCIAC field hockey accolades

Seven Greenwich High School field hockey players earned All-FCIAC awards, after they each produced sensational fall seasons.

Justine Liguori and Isa Lattuada, both seniors and junior Klara Mueffelmann were each All-FCIAC First Team selections. Liguori helped power the Cardinals’ offensive attack, scoring numerous clutch goals throughout the season. She will continue her field hockey career at the collegiate level at Amherst College

Lattuada, a captain, was a dynamic playmaker in all areas of the field. Lattuada, who will play field hockey at Amherst College, helped create scoring opportunities and also kept the defense organized for the Cardinals, who finished the season with a record of 13-6-0-1 for coach Megan Wax.

A junior, Mueffelmann, who has committed to play the sport at Boston College, was also one of Greenwich’s main offensive threats, scoring a lot of goals and setting her teammates up for tallies. Her skill and athleticism made her a difficult player to defend.

Seniors Zita Cohen and Isa Biagini were presented with All-FCIAC West Team awards for their outstanding play this fall. Cohen, one of the team’s captains, was a highly productive player on the field and displayed plenty of leadership on and off the field for the Cardinals, who advanced to the FCIAC Tournament quarterfinals, then also moved on to the CIAC Class LL Tournament quarterfinal-round. She will take her field hockey skills to Brown University next year.

Biagini was instrumental in helping make Greenwich one of the most effective offensive teams in the FCIAC and state this fall. The Cardinals scored five goals or more in 10 of its 20 games, with Biagini helping spark the squad offensively with big goals throughout the season.

Sophomore Kelly Janssen found her niche in her first season as the Cardinals’ starting goalie. She rose to the occasion throughout the year for Greenwich, which registered 11 shutouts in 20 games. In the Class L quarterfinals against New Canaan, Janssen made 21 saves, a performance marking just one of the numerous impressive games she had in goal. Janssen received All-FCIAC Honorable Mention recognition, as did senior Angelica Veronis. One of the team’s captains, Veronis helped solidify the midfield position for Greenwich and was also a source of consistent leadership.

Justine Liguori (No. 3), Klara Mueffelmann (No. 5), Angelica Veronis (No. 2) and Isa Lattuada (No. 9) each earned All-FCIAC awards for having standout seasons for the Greenwich High field hockey team.
