June 11, 2008 · Updated 3:24 PM
Despite scoring 17 goals, notching 40 points and finishing the season responsible for almost half his teams offensive output, Bremertons Francisco Garcia was one of two runners-up for the Olympic League boys soccer MVP award.
Garcia and Olympics Cody Clark each received two votes for the leagues top honor, while Kingstons John Troka won the award with four votes.
Clark, who won the award last season, scored 11 goals and dished out three assists for 25 total points. He was still honored with an All-Olympic League First Team selection, as was Garcia.
Joining Clark on the first team were Olympic teammates Derek Conway-Newton, one of the leagues top midfielders, and sophomore goal keeper Thomas Bryan.
Klahowyas Darryn Reinertson also earned first-team honors after leading the Eagles in scoring once again with five goals and one assist.
The lone Trojan on the second team was midfielder Arturo Urquieta. Two Eagles made second-team honors however; midfielder Tucker Moran and defender John McLaughlin.
Forward Paul Brumm and defenders Jeff LaGranduer and Scott Breeding earned Olys honorable mention nods, while Klahowya keeper Justin Shaputis also was an honorable mention.
