With a handful of highly-regarded veteran players dotting the roster, the White River High boys soccer team is looking for good things this spring. Last year’s crew put up middle-of-the-road numbers, finishing 6-9-1 overall and 6-8 in South Puget Sound League 2A play.

Among those leading the way for this year’s crew are seniors Josh Clough, Sam Hatley and Tyler Krebsbach, along with junior midfielder Hayden Grimm. Clough and Grimm were honorable mention picks a season ago when SPSL 2A coaches sat down to choose their all-league teams.

Also back for another season on the sidelines is veteran Hornet coach Russ DeFord. Also back is assistant Sam Gates.

White River’s early-season tests will come from a pair of nonleague neighbors. White River hosts Enumclaw March 16 and travels to Bonney Lake March 18; both games begin at 7 p.m. Both those foes are from the larger SPSL 3A ranks.
