Here's a look at what made sports news this year in Greenwich. 

In March, the Greenwich High School Men's Foil Team won the gold medal in the Connecticut State Fencing Championships. The team entered the competition with a 3rd place ranking but narrowly beat out competitors to take home the gold. The players hope to attract more recruits for the sport in the 2014 season.

"We just won the State Championships for the first time and it was really good because we got 3rd last year so it was a big improvement and it was really close, each of our matches we barely won," says GHS Foil Team Captain, Harry McGuire.

In June, Swim Across America set a new bar, raising nearly $500,000 for cancer research. The morning swim marked seven years for the organization's event and brought together hundreds to rally against the widespread disease. 

"The reason we're raising money is because there are so many personal stories and reasons that people are out there swimming, we've had some pretty personal stories of teams that are rallied behind friends and loved ones that are battling cancer right now," says Janel McArdle, President and CEO of Swim Across America.

In the Fall, the Spirit Zone Too's special needs team the "Alexandrites" kicked off their second cheerleading season. The team is made up of boys and girls with varying disabilities as well as cheerleaders from the Spirit Zone program and Greenwich High School.
