FCIAC girls player of the week: Allison Macari
Westhill's Allison Macari has been named MSG Varsity's female FCIAC Athlete of the Week for April 23-28 by a panel of athletic directors and MSG Varsity reporters. Macari tossed a perfect game against Warde as the Vikings won 11-0 in Fairfield last Tuesday. She also allowed just one run on three hits in Westhill’s 8-1 win over McMahon on Wednesday. On Friday, Macari struck out 12 and walked none as she pitched Westhill to a 10-4 win over city rival Stamford. Macari was also solid at the plate with two hits, including a solo home run. Macari, an All-State pitcher who has led the Vikings to back-to-back trips to the state finals, will continue her career at Ithaca College.

What's the best piece of advice you've received?
