STONINGTON — Stonington High’s Max Mueller didn’t wear a cape with his uniform this season, but as far as first-year coach Nick Warhola was concerned he probably should have.
“Max was our superman this year — that was the nickname they gave him,” Warhola said.
Mueller, a senior midfielder, was named second-team Class S All-State and ECC Division-II honorable mention.
“He runs hard up and down the field constantly,” Warhola said. “He picks up ground balls and runs through defenses. He made an impression on every single coach we played against. He was an end-to-end incredible player.”
Mueller scored 14 goals and had nine assists.
Senior defender Jeff DeLapp was a ECC Division II honorable-mention pick for the Bears.
Warhola said DeLapp was “hands down” Stonington’s top defender. He said DeLapp always drew the toughest player on the opposing team.
DeLapp played excellent position defense and he was better with his feet than his stick, according to Warhola.
Senior Steven DeVoe received the sportsmanship award, and sophomore Sean Peglow was the scholar-athlete winner.
Stonington finished 7-10 overall and 3-4 in the league. The Bears lost in the first round of the Class S tournament.
