Woog’s Soccer Boys Remember Another

WestportNow.com Image
This was Preston Hirten Weekend for Westport Staples High School soccer fans. Preston is a former Staples (and all-state) soccer player (Class of 2007) who died of an undetected heart ailment during preseason training at the University of Mary Washington in 2009. Every summer since, former Staples and UMW players have come to Westport to honor his memory. There was a seven-against-summer soccer tournament, a cookout at the Hirtens’ house, and a barbeque at Compo Beach tonight. “It’s a way for his friends to get together, for the Hirtens to realize he’s not forgotten, and for the current Staples players to learn about his legacy,” said Coach Dan Woog. Pictured at the beach are (l-r) rising Staples seniors Patrick Beusse, Nate Argosh and Michael Reid. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Helen Klisser During for WestportNow.com

Little League Girls in Pursuit of State Title Again

WestportNow.com Image
The Westport Little League Girls softball team is back in pursuit of a title with largely the team that last year won the Little League state championship at the 10-11-year-old level. The pursuit of 12-year-old dreams began Tuesday night as Westport beat Fairfield 8-6 in its first game of the double elimination tournament.  Sofia Alfero got the win, striking out six in five innings. Emily Stone, a new addition to the team, closed out the game with a 1-2-3 sixth inning. Ali Green set the tone by opening with a double, scoring and then made a huge catch in center field in the final inning. Alfero was also the star hitter going 3-4 with a two-run triple. In the bottom of the fifth, with the game tied, Natalie Schenk brought in Sami Levin for what proved to be the winning run. Westport pounded out 13 hits in the contest. Westport needs a win Friday night at Unity Park in Trumbull at 5:30 p.m. or on Saturday for the District 2 title. Pictured are Sophia Alfero, pitcher, and Emily Stone, third base.

Staples Grad David Speer is 27th Round MLB Pick by Indians

WestportNow.com Image
Four years ago, Staples High School pitching ace David Speer sat in the Staples cafeteria to announce he was headed to Columbia University. Today, after a stellar four years with the Light Blue, the 21-year-old was selected by the Cleveland Indians in the 27th round of the 2014 Major League Baseball entry draft. The lefty had an impressive career for Columbia, and was the Lions’ No. 1 starter in his junior and senior seasons. He helped Columbia win the first of two consecutive Ivy League titles as a junior in 2013, garnering first-team All-Ivy honors after going 5-0 with a 1.06 ERA in conference play, and pitched even better in 2014. Speer went 7-2 with a 1.86 ERA his senior year, and logged a 4-0 record in conference play to go undefeated in the Ancient Eight for the second straight year and earn Ivy League Pitcher of the Year honors.
