When it comes to contending teams in the Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference, the names most often mentioned are the usual suspects: Darien, Ridgefield, Greenwich, New Canaan and Wilton.
But there have been signals that others teams should also be considered contenders, most notably the trio of Staples, Brien McMahon and Fairfield Ludlowe.
Fairfield Ludlowe opened the season by playing Darien to a 3-3 draw late in the first half before falling 7-4.
Today, we will get a good read as to where Staples stands in the mix.
