The Staples Diamond Club, in conjunction with Westport Little League, held its first annual Skills Competition Sunday at the Donald S. Levy Memorial Field at Coleytown. Staples varsity baseball players ran the little leaguers through hitting, pitching, fielding and running contests while sharing some pointers on techniques. Winners included Ben Goldstein and Corey Rispoli in the Majors/Minors division as well as Chad Knight, Luc Yokoi, Fraser Lyons, Aiden Weir, Sam Robin, Nick Rossi, Zachary Bloom and Clayton Crouch. in the AA/AAA division. The overall home run derby winner was third grader Chad Knight who hit an eye-opening 27 balls over the fence before recording 10 outs in the Major League Baseball style event. The contests raised funds to support the two-time defending Fairfield County Interscholastic Athletic Conference champs.
