The Staples boys’ volleyball team defeated the Trumbull Eagles on May 13 in straight sets, 3-0 on senior night.

The boys’ three seniors, Captains Logan Carstens ’19, Theo Gabor ’19 and Brian Wilk ’19 all played for the majority of the game, each of them contributing to the Wreckers win.

Carstens led the stat sheet with 11 kills, 22 assists and 2 digs. Gabor added 6 kills, 1 dig, 3 aces and 3 blocks. Brian Wilk contributed 8 kills and 2 blocks.

Gabor commented on the what it meant to win on senior night.

“Winning on senior night is always fun. We had a great crowd with a bunch of alum and former coaches so it was nice to win in front of them,” he said.

Last year, the Wreckers won the CIAC state championship. After losing almost all of their starters, their main challenge was rebuilding the team.

“Recently we have been working a lot on our team camaraderie, we lost almost all our starters last year so it’s awesome to see the new team finally coming together and that was a big part of why we played so well,” Gabor added.

First year head coach John Sedlock was pleased with the boys’ performance on Monday night. He described their communication to be “constant and effective.” As playoffs approach in late May, the one-loss wreckers feel confident in their position.

“We have the highest hopes for playoffs. When we play to our strengths we are very, very tough to beat,” Sedlock said. “If we can execute those strengths in the postseason we have a really good chance of bringing home the trophies.”
