— The Mustangs missed out on districts last year by one game.

Coach Ricky Ruiz believes his squad can make it this year. The interest is good, with 42 boys turning out. Half them played in the program last year.

“I think we have playoff team,” Ruiz said.

The attack will be led by sophomore forward Jared Garcia. He doesn’t have a lot of experience, but he has skill.

“He has improved a lot during the past year,” Ruiz said.

Leadership should come from senior defender Ricardo Herrera, who started every game last year. Another leader should be offensive-minded senior mid-fielder Salvador Corona.

“He’s a good passer and a good ball handler,” Ruiz said.

Prosser starts the season at the Pasco Jamboree against Pasco and Southridge.

The Mustangs travel to Connell on March 10 and open at home at 4 p.m. March 13 against Ephrata.
