Wreckers Win Academic All-America Honors — 13th Year In A Row!

For the 16th time in 18 years — and the 13th season in a row — the Staples boys soccer program has been honored with a national award for academic excellence.

And they did it with one of their highest GPAs ever.

United Soccer Coaches presented the Wreckers with a Team Academic Award at last weekend’s annual convention in Chicago. The only other Connecticut boys public high school to earn the award was Ellington.

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 2017, Staples’ varsity players had an average GPA of 3.40. That was just shy of the previous year’s GPA: 3.46.

“I’ve always said that our players are some of the smartest and most creative people at Staples,” said head coach Dan Woog. “We want our guys to be as strong in the classroom as they are on the field. What’s especially gratifying about this award is that it’s won as a team. I’m proud that United Soccer Coaches recognizes our team as one that strives for academic excellence.”

Woog said that indications are good that the 2018 squad should also qualify for the Academic All-American honor.

  1. First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

    Communities are also a major condition in Meaningful Beauty . This is a simple to follow outline for you. I’ll try to fill in a few of the details but also most typical readers don’t know where to begin when it draws a parallel to Meaningful Beauty . It is notable. It was retired by this notion. Well, as my neighbor sometimes expresses, “A stitch in time saves nine.” It’s how you assess your Meaningful Beauty . Meaningful Beauty is actually very a novelty. Why not now? That is the one mistake you don’t want to make.
