’22 Tryouts Begin!

Over 60 hopefuls descended on Wakeman Field today, for the first day of varsity and reserve tryouts. More than 2 dozen more came out for the freshman squad.

Head coach Russell Oost-Lievense welcomed the 10th-12th graders. He takes the reins, as only the 4th permanent head coach in Staples boys soccer history.

He and his staff are preparing quickly. The first scrimmage is this Tuesday (August 30, 3:30 pm at Greens Farms Academy). Opening day is September 8 (4 pm at Ridgefield). The home opener is 2 days later: September 10, 10 am at Loeffler Field vs. New Canaan.

See you on The Hill!
