For the 11th time in 13 years — and the fifth season in a row — the Staples boys soccer program has been honored with a national award for academic excellence.
The National Soccer Coaches Association of America gave the Wreckers a Team Academic Award — one of only two boys soccer teams in Connecticut to be so named.
To qualify, a squad must have a 3.25 grade point average of all varsity players. The award is given for the previous academic year. In 2012, Staples’ varsity players had an average GPA of just a fraction over 3.36. Of the Wreckers’ 11 Academic All-America awards, that was one of the highest average GPAs.
“I’ve always said that our players are some of the smartest and most creative people at Staples,” said head coach Dan Woog.
