Behind the strong performances of senior captains Mikey Fitzgerald and Tom Prenderville, the Staples boys volleyball team eased its way to a 3-0 (25-21, 25-4, 25-15) home win over the Trumbull Golden Eagles on Monday afternoon. Staples improved to 4-0 and pushed its winning streak to 84 consecutive matches. Strong front play and consistent backsets enabled the Wreckers to succeed.
However, it took some time for the Wreckers to finally get going, as Trumbull was able to hang around during the first game. With Staples clinging to an 8-7 lead, the Wreckers created some breathing room with a 5-0 spurt. Staples capped off the run with two spikes by senior captain Evan Gaumert, forcing Trumbull to call a time out.
