Second base on the Staples baseball team belongs to Staples soccer.
Jack Hennessy graduated, but Mikey Scott has filled those spikes nicely.
Batting .563, with 6 RBIs and a .650 on-base percentage, the soccer midfielder has helped the Wreckers to a perfect 6-0 record.
Last week Staples went 3-0, taking down a pair of undefeated teams in the process: Brien McMahon (10-0) and Fairfield Warde (6-4).
In the Warde game, Mikey led off the 7th (final) inning with a single, then scored the winning run. (Read all about it here in the Connecticut Post.)
The Stamford Advocate took note of the Wreckers’ accomplishment, nominating them for FCIAC Overtime Team of the Week. To vote for Staples — and help them beat the other nominees, New Canaan softball and McMahon boys lacrosse — click here. Voting ends Wednesday at noon.
