Rise And Shine! Wreckers Tryout Begins At Dawn

Staples soccer made history this morning.

Tryouts began at 6 a.m., to accommodate several of the coaches’ teaching and work schedules.

Teenagers are notoriously late risers. But 54 varsity and reserve candidates (grades 10-12) were at Wakeman Field before the sun officially rose, ready to work. They took to the mist-shrouded fields, and put in a very solid and energetic 90-minute session.  They felt proud to have finished at a time when they’d normally still be asleep — and looked forward to a good rest before the second tryout, at 5 p.m.

The coaching staff will work to cut teams down to manageable sizes. Staples’ first scrimmage is Tuesday, 4:15 p.m. at Joel Barlow.
