Pavement and a small patch of grass is where the Tierra Encantada boys soccer got its start.
With no nearby pitch, coach Kurtis Montoya and his Alacranes had to make do.
“We didn’t even have a field,” Montoya said. “When we moved to our new school at this location, we were practicing on pavement or practiced on a very small patch of grass that’s right next to the parking lot.”
The team now has access to a practice field at Salvador Perez Park, but because it is in use most afternoons, the Alacranes again have had to make do.
