On May 3, State Sen. Michael McLachlan welcomed the champion Danbury High School girls varsity basketball team to the State Capitol.

In February, the team captured its first FCIAC title, beating defending league champion Trumbull 54-39.

“We are so proud of these players,” Sen. McLachlan said. “They had an amazing season, and we thought it would be a fitting honor to pay tribute to their accomplishments here at the State Capitol. They received a warm round of applause from the Senate Chamber. We also wanted to note the total team effort that it took for this team to become champions. The Hatters’ coaches, teachers and parents all played key support roles throughout the season. This championship season is a reflection of their hard work and their sacrifices along the way. It was a great day for Danbury.”

Sen. McLachlan also paid tribute to Coach Jackie DiNardo for achieving major milestones, including her 400th win and her 25th year as coach.
