— The Granger boys soccer team is coming off down year in soccer at the same time that Hector Camacho is taking over as coach.

It could be another uphill year.

The Spartans have been a frequent post-season participant but not last year. They finished back of a first-year Zillah team.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do,” Camacho said.

The turnout was not great this year, with only 33 candidates from which to build a varsity and junior varsity.

The Spartans have only two returners on the field. They are senior mid-fielders Jose Gil Martinez and Tony Franco.

Good news for the Spartans is the return of sophomore Ricardo Brito in the goal. He defended it last year.

Camacco has no idea who he’ll have at the attack end of the field. He needs two forwards, but no one has emerged at practice.

Camacho has only two more players with experience, and it is limited.

They are John Prince and Pedro Ochoa.

He hopes to find some help among the freshmen but, so far, no one is shining.

Fortunately, there is still time to complete the search.

Granger will start the season on March 13 at Cashmere.

The Spartans will be at home against Connell on March 15.
