Wreckers Crush the Cards

On April 10 the Wreckers walked away with a well-deserved win.

Nearly one year ago, on April 26,2011, the Staples boys lacrosse team was defeated by the Greenwich Cardinals. Later on in that same season the Wreckers were defeated once again.

The game started off strong with a Greenwich goal two minutes into the game. Joey Zelkowitz ’13, would soon fire back with one for Staples.

For the Wreckers, this game was a chance to prove their true ability and growth since last season.

“We definitely went into this game thinking about last year,” said captain Quinn Mendelson ’13. “It’s a new season so you don’t really want to deal too much with what happened last year, but Greenwich was a game we really wanted to win because of last year’s outcome.”

The game continued with an exciting goal by Peter Paul ‘12 with seven minutes remaining in the first quarter. That goal was followed by Colin Bannon’s ’13 perfect shot to the net with a mere four minutes remaining in the first half.

The shots continued to fire from Staples, with incredible goals by Jared Levi ’13, Kyle Murray ’12, and Paul once again.

This offense proved to be too much for Greenwich, who only scored one more goal for the remainder of the game. In addition to the Wrecker offense, Lance Lonergan ’13 played tough defense while Cole Gendels ’14 tended the goal impressively.

All in all, it was an a stark improvement from the outcome of the 2011 Greenwich vs Staples games. However, this is just the beginning of the season for Staples.

“Our main goal as a team is to win a championship. Anytime you get a win you are getting closer to that goal, but it helps out even more if you’re beating a really high class opponent such as Greenwich,” Mendelson said.

Final Score: Staples-6, Greenwich-2

About the Contributor
Sara Luttinger, A&E Editor
Sara (who really should be called “Care-a”) Luttinger ’13 is very involved in Staples. She’s worked a lot with kids who have special needs – which would be her dream job, she’s interested in majoring in communications in college based on her “love of being around people”, and her favorite part of Inklings is the staff. Can you tell she’s a people person? As a senior girl, she’s had her fair share of highs and lows at Staples - the peak of her high school career being her first day of senior year. “We had a sleepover and decorated our cars the next day, it was so much fun,” said Luttinger. However, she continues by describing the all time low of high school - midterms in freshman year - as, “I had no idea what I was doing…” So, Sara, teetering between being overly caring with her love for people and not caring at all with her senioritis, is her own oxymoron.
