Grantsville has a pair of tough games this week with a contest at Spanish Fork today and the first home game on Friday against Juan Diego.
Grantsville coach Heidi Taylor said she doesn’t have a solidified starting lineup yet, but as the season progresses she’ll figure that out. Right now she said she has several players who can step in at any time and contribute, including several juniors.
“We’re excited about the 27 girls we picked,” Taylor said. “It could be anyone that steps up for us.”
