Car Wash Wipes Out Previous Record
Last year, COVID knocked out Staples boys soccer’s annual car wash fundraiser.
This year, it was back. And the Wreckers blew the previous record out of the water.
The reserves team started things off in the morning at Christ & Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, before heading off to Stamford (where they defeated Westhill 6-2).
The varsity took the all-important middle shift, ramping things up even more with a tremendous team effort.
The freshmen — fresh off their 3-0 victory against Ridgefield — completed the day with their own very energetic 2-hour stint.
Andy and Nikki Laskin P’23 headed up the effort. They enlisted a horde of parent volunteers, who made the day run smoothly.
The event drew scores of Westport residents — and politicians. First Selectman Jim Marpe and Second Selectman Jen Tooker (running now for the top spot) stopped by. So did challengers State Representative Jonathan Steinberg and Board of Education Chair Candice Savin. The Wreckers cleaned their cars in a non-partisan way.
And invited them all to the next game: at Staples on Tuesday, vs. Wilton (4 p.m.).
