The Wilton girls varsity lacrosse team closed out its regular season with wins against Fairfield Warde (21-3), St. Joes (15-4) and Greenwich (14-5), ending with an 11-3 record and #22 ranking in the country, according to USA Lacrosse Magazine.

The May 22 matchup against Greenwich featured a breakout performance from freshman Addison Pattillo, who led the team with four goals and one assist.

Wilton entered the FCIAC post-season tournament as the number-three seed and was slated up for a rematch against number-six Greenwich. The game started off as a back and forth affair, but the Warriors proved to be too much again for Greenwich and ran away with a 15-10 victory. Wilton was led offensively by Emerson Pattillo, Molly Snow and Grace Williams, with a strong defensive effort from goalie Hughes, Catherine Dineen, Hailey Smith and Maureen Campbell. Kira Howard and the draw team had a great second half for Wilton, allowing the Warriors to control the time of possession in a tight ballgame before Wilton closed out the Cardinals.

In the semifinal round, Wilton faced second-seed Darien, losing 12-6. Darien fell to top-seed New Canaan in the finals, 7-4.
