SUNNYSIDE There could be a bright season ahead for the Grizzlies. They lost only four seniors from a team that made it to the final 16 last year.
Six of last year’s starters will be on the field this year. They include both forwards, senior Gonzalo Fausto and junior Francisco Lagunas.
“We’ll be competitive,” coach David Guevara said. “We’re going to prepare to go 1-0 in every game.”
Other returning starters include junior center defender Lalo Ramirez, junior mid-fielder Abraham Arreola, senior center defensive mid-fielder Brian Licona and senior attack mid-fielder Christian Morales.
There will be experience in the goal, with senior Christian Martinez returning.
The Grizzlies will start the season in the Vancouver area this weekend.
They will play Union on March 9 and Evergreen on March 10.
