Coach Paul McNulty and his staff have established a foundation for excellence in Boys Lacrosse at Staples High School. During this time, the Varsity Team's record has improved to a winning record of 53 - 24. The 2010 Varsity team was undefeated during the regular season and was the FCIAC Western Division Champion. As a result of the enhanced level of coaching, training and play, the program has also produced top student athletes, with recent alumnae players recruited by NCAA Division I, II and III schools including Colgate, Merrimack, Princeton, Union, Yale, Oberlin, Endicott, Middlebury, University of Massachusetts, Loyola and Boston University. Concurrent with Coach McNulty's arrival, the player population at Staples has grown rapidly. There are now over one hundred Staples students playing lacrosse.
The 2015 season may be the best yet! A strong group of incoming freshman should enable the Freshman Team to continue their winning record. The Junior Varsity Team looks to improve upon a strong showing in 2014. At the Varsity level, Coach Paul McNulty will lead a talented and experienced group of returning upperclassmen and underclassmen into what is sure to be an exciting 2015 season. All players are hungry to make and impact and will work hard to continue the winning tradition of Wreckers Boys Lacrosse.
The recent growth and success of the Staples Boys Lacrosse Program is made possible through the hard work and dedication of the coaching staff, the players and the ongoing support of parents like you.
Funding provided for lacrosse by the Board of Education cannot cover all of the costs associated with running the program each year. In order to close the funding gap and continue to offer an excellent program, the Wreckers Lacrosse Club relies on the generous support of parents of current players, alumni, corporate sponsors, the greater Staples Wreckers Lacrosse community and team fundraising events.
The Wreckers Lacrosse Club is a volunteer-run section 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. The Club provides financial and other assistance to the lacrosse program at Staples, including but not limited to coaching assistance, financial assistance for players with demonstrated need, enhanced game film services, team building opportunities and sponsorship of the annual team banquet. Our collective energy is focused on helping the Wreckers achieve their on-field and off-field performance objectives through targeted fundraising. The single most important component of our fundraising objectives is Parent Stewardship. Your Stewardship gift will help the coaches and players reach their goal of becoming one of the premiere lacrosse programs in Connecticut.
A winning tradition for Staples Lacrosse is just beginning. Please support the proud tradition of excellence that will live on for new players long after your son graduates. We hope you will join us in supporting the continued growth of this program and we hope to see you at every game this spring.
