Staples Boys Soccer Team To Be Honored December 16

The original plan was for a downtown parade, honoring Staples’ state championship boys soccer team, the FCIAC champion football team, and other outstanding high school students.

Nick Cion will be honored twice -- as a member of the state champion soccer team, and as a National Merit semifinalist.

The ACT test, and work and other commitments scuttled those plans.  Now, the Wreckers will be feted on Wednesday, Dec. 16, in a special ceremony before the start of the boys basketball team’s home opener vs. Central.  The event is slated for 7 p.m., in the gymnasium.

Along with the soccer and football teams, the town will salute the award-winning Staples Players theater troupe; the nationally recognized Inklings staff; the Drury Award-winning WWPT broadcasters; the Seimens/Westhinghouse semifinalists; the stellar Moody’s Math Challenge team; the National Merit semifinalists; writer Haris Durani, and the 2nd-in-the-world robotics team.

Congratulations to all — see you Wednesday!
