The 2009 Staples Wreckers are set.
The varsity squad is well balanced, with 11 seniors, 10 juniors and 3 sophomores. Freshman James Hickok will serve as the varsity backup goalkeeper until Connor Walsh’s broken wrist heals, and will join the varsity for post-season play.
The junior varsity includes 9 juniors and 12 sophomores. The freshman side numbers 20, with 1 player still to try out after an injury. Congratulations to all — including newly elected frosh captains Harry Birch and Dylan Hoy.

There are 3 brothers of older players new to the Staples program: Birch, Jon Denowitz and Joe Greenwald. In addition, freshman James Manning is the 2nd Staples player with that name. The other James Manning scored the winning goal in the 1973 state championship on a diving header, in sudden death overtime.
