of Sandy, Utah, attended the University of Puget Sound, before joining Kitsap, which debuted in the PDL in 2009.
Hyde, who started 14 of 16 matches, is headed back to La Paz to begin
training for the Apertura championship, the first half of the Bolivia season. Kitsap teammates Max Lipset
also trained at La Paz FC on a recent trip to Bolivia.
