— The Greyhounds won the CWAC title last year. They were the only team to score against Arch Bishop Murphy at state, and there is good reason to expect more of the same.

“We have a strong corps of underclassmen,” coach Anne Holden said.

There are six returning starters to lead the way. There are four more players who saw action last year. And the net should be well-defended by sophomore Diego Cuevas, who played last year.

The club should find leadership in senior center mid-fielder Alex Benitez. He was an all-CWAC selection last year.

Another returning senior starter is defender Jorge Meraz. Senior forward Chayo Arriaga scored six goals last year.

There are some veteran underclassmen. Junior

David Sanchez is slated at defender.

Sophomore Pedro will be a defender, and sophomore Jodani Osuna will be the right mid-fielder.

Grandview will start the season March 8 at the Pasco Jamboree, taking on Toppenish and Kamiakin. Friday, the Geyhonds will host Southridge at 6 p.m

There will be game at Sunnyside on March 13 at p.m.
