FAIRFIELD - An Orthodox priest has heads turning at Wilton High School where he recently joined the track and field coaching staff.

Father Luke Mihaly was a Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference (FCIAC) champion in high school and says it was only natural for him to want to inspire others to do well in the various events track and field offers.

Luke says he's not there to preach to students, but to share his love of the sport.
