MONROE - During the dog days of summer, sophomore forward Nick Schumacher has asked Monroe High School boys soccer coach Tony Vasquez to unlock the shed for him so he could get soccer balls out to practice his shooting. When the team was hit with the news that last year's leading scorer, senior Ryne Miller, would miss the season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament, the Cheesemakers turned to Schumacher. Schumacher has emerged not only as an offensive weapon for the Cheesemakers, but as a leader for a young team that starts two freshmen and four sophomores.
