4 Dozen Wreckers Enjoy Turkey Bowl

Nearly 50 Staples soccer alumni — and half a dozen current players, plus a few honorary alums — spent a brilliant Thanksgiving morning playing some spirited games on the Wakeman turf.

The group —  ranging from Seth Sholes ’78 to freshman Phil Foisie, plus the sons of Dan Donovan ’82 and Kent Thomas ’86 — had a great time vying for bragging rights for the coming year.

The 2006 team — which won last year’s Alumni Award for continued contributions to Staples soccer — set a Turkey Bowl record.  Eleven members of the squad returned, fielding their own complete team.

Stig Stenild-Johansen traveled the further distance.  He came from Italy.

Alumni contributions raised nearly $500 for the Loeffler Scholarship Fund.  The next event — the annual indoor tournament — is set for Thursday, December 29, 6 p.m. in the Staples fieldhouse.
