Seattle Sounders' voting promotion now underway

Former Sunnyside High School soccer standout Junior Garcia is in the running to land a spot on the roster of the Seattle Sounders.

In a special promotion being conducted by the Sounders, Garcia is one of 10 soccer players to have advanced through a series of tryouts. As part of the promotion, soccer fans will now cast their votes for one of the 10 finalists. The top three vote-getters will then move on, and one of those three will be chosen by the Sounders for this year's team.

Lower Yakima Valley soccer fans can participate in the voting by accessing the web site. On the right side of the web page is a "vote now" button, which asks viewers to click the "register to vote" button. A ballot will then be sent to the viewer's home e-mail address.

The eventual winner will be announced on King-5 TV on Super Bowl Sunday.
