Seawolves-2012EDMONDS, Wash.— On a sunny Saturday March 30, over a hundred hopefuls strutted their stuff on the 2-year-old Edmonds Community College turf field hoping to leave a lasting impression on North Sound SeaWolves coaching staff and make it on to the PDL Northwest club’s roster.

“We have at least 20 more trying out this year than last,” said Alex Silva, the SeaWolves owner/coordinator and previous head coach.

The warmer the afternoon became, the hotter the competition on the pitch got. Of particular interest, the goalkeeping battle seems to be extremely competitive due to the fact that the former Concordia University player and last year’s SeaWolves outstanding GK Claudio Lazar is not returning. Potential goal tenders for North Sound this summer include but are not limited to 2012 SeaWolves backup GK Evan Gaul (Shoreline CC, Lewis & Clark HS) Jeff Renslo (PASL NW Arlington Aviators, Archbishop Murphy HS) and Keegan Rogers (WWU sophomore, Portland Christian HS.)

Along the south fence of the Tritons home field, Edmonds CC sophomore Jay Josimimar, Marysville Ruckus indoor player Mike Newton and Seattle’s Alex Billar took refuge from the ever-intensifying sun. “There are some really good competitions out here,” said Josimimar. Near the south end goal, forward hopeful Aaron Burns commented, “the competitiveness on the pitch makes you want to work even harder.” Work ethic is definitely not a problem for this (yet another) Arlington Aviators and 2009 class of Edmonds CC player.

The SeaWolves have undergone a busy off-season with the hiring of Jim Underhill as  General Manager, the addition of new head coach Ed Moore, and negotiating 2013 use of Edmonds-Woodway Stadium over the course of the three-month PDL season.

North Sound, which recently released its season ticket information,  begins league play on May 18.

The SeaWolves will host seven matches at Edmonds Stadium, beginning with the home opener against the Portland Timbers U-23 on Saturday, May 18 at 4 p.m., which will be part of the “Move 60 Family Fitness Day” celebration.
