Staples Volleyball Wins 8th Straight FCIAC Title; Mikey Fitzgerald Named MVP

Mikey Fitzgerald and Steven Denowitz added volleyball FCIAC medals to last fall’s soccer crowns yesterday.

Both played key roles, as Staples defeated Darien 3-1 (25-23, 25-18, 23-25, 25-17) to win their 8th consecutive league championship.  The Wreckers have now won 99 consecutive matches.

Mikey Fitzgerald has done a lot of celebrating this year.

Fitzgerald was named Most Valuable Player of the finals.  He had 17 assists, 8 kills and 9 blocks.

Denowitz (1 kill, 1 assist, 8 service points, 1 ace, 3 blocks, 1 dig) contributed several key blocks when the match was tight.

Staples was the #1 seed, while the #3 Blue Wave rallied from a 2-0 deficit to stun #2 Ridgefield 3-2 in the semifinals.

The Wreckers now try for their 5th consecutive state L championship — and 8th title in 9 years.  Seeded 1st — with an opening round bye — they host the Danbury-Norwich Free Academy winner in next Friday’s (June 4) quarterfinals.

Game time in the Staples gym is 7 p.m.
