Great Basin all-conference soccer players recognized


Coach of the year – Luis Monjaras – Wood River HS: Wood River won the state championship on Saturday and it makes sense that boys soccer coach Luis Monjaras adds Coach of the Year to his accolades.

The third honor of his career, he says the award belongs to the whole coaching staff.

The Wolverines won the conference, districts and of course, the aforementioned state championship.

Player of the Year – Mario Macias is a junior defender/midfielder that helped the Wolverines to a 17-2-1 record this year and post nine shutouts. In 2016, the team voted him Defender of the Year.
