College Soccer Fest: 4 Wreckers On Field Together

Austin Sholes won bragging rights over 3 former Staples soccer players yesterday.

The Washington & Lee freshman helped his team to a 5-1 victory over Emory. The Eagles boast 3 Wrecker alums: Sholes’ 2018 teammate Matthew Tanzer, sophomore Matt Engler and junior Josh Berman. The latter 2 are former Staples captains.

Longtime STA preseason camp director Brian Kuk — who coached Emory head coach Cory Greiner as a youth player — was at the match, in Lexington, Virginia. He and Sholes’ father Seth — a former Staples player, All-American at Wesleyan University and Wrecker reserve coach — agree: The game was far closer than the score.

Four former players on the field at once may not be a Staples record. But it makes the program very proud!

Austin Sholes, Matthew Tanzer, Josh Berman and Matt Engler — together again.
