McNulty among lax Hall of Fame induction class

Former Wilton High boys lacrosse head coach Paul McNulty is among the seven people who will be inducted into the Connecticut Lacrosse Hall of Fame next Saturday.

The induction ceremony will take place from to 6 to 11 p.m. at Aldario's Restaurant in Milford.

In 1978, McNulty, who is now the head coach of the Staples boys lacrosse team, started coaching at Wilton High School, where he was a football assistant for 29 years, the indoor track head coach for six years, and a long-term assistant coach to Connecticut Lacrosse Hall of Fame honoree Guy Whitten.

After succeeding Whitten as Wilton's head coach in 1996, McNulty compiled a 192-81 record over 13 seasons, reaching five FCIAC finals, winning two, and five state championship games, winning three. He coached 25 All-State players, 20 All-Americans, and two Connecticut Players of the Year.

McNulty stopped coaching at Wilton following the end of the 2008 season and then became the head coach at Staples, his alma mater, prior to the 2009 season. In his second year at Staples, McNulty led the Wreckers to an 18-2 record. Over six seasons his Staples teams have posted an 84-35 record. In 2013 and 2014, Staples lost in the finals of the Class L state championship game.
