Rain did not deter nearly 60 candidates from trying out this morning for the 2009 Staples varsity and junior varsity teams.  An0ther 40 freshmen arrived at noon, in better weather.

“We saw some high quality players this morning,” said head coach Dan Woog.  “But this is the shortest pre-season in our 51-year history.  School starts Tuesday, so we’ve got only 3 days of double sessions.

“Our 1st scrimmage is Wednesday.  We’ll have to work extremely hard to find the right players, and start putting the best combinations together.

“It’s a challenge,” he continued.  “Fortunately, all of us — players and coaches — love that challenge.  We’re excited about working on it.”
