WESTPORT, Conn. The Staples High boys tennis team has jumped out to a 5-0 start as the Wreckers look to defend their state championship.
The Wreckers, who went 19-1 last year, beat Danbury, 7-0, on Thursday. Zack Levin, Baxter Stein, Jason Chaskin, Jake Smith and Brian Saunders recorded singles wins. Steve Thomson and Evan Davis won at first doubles, while Jared Eisenberg and Matt Levantin won at second doubles.
Staples has dropped just two matches in its five victories. Fairfield Ludlowe and Brien McMahon were able to avoid 7-0 shutouts by winning one match each.
