Precisely in the month of February of the current year, when the people in charge of the team offered one of its references in the 2021 season, Heber Jirato take over the leadership of the top team since an injury that had plagued him for quite some time would prevent him from participating as he likes best, as a player.

The rest of the story was written at sheer sacrifice. Countless trips over 150 km to go, play and return. A very complicated first wheel as a visitor, only one victory in five presentations although the conviction remained intact, as well as the arduous daily training sessions.

The accompaniment of the public in the local matches was constant and, as things went on, that support was also felt as visitors, to the point that in the last and decisive match that allowed the long-awaited promotion they converted the Polimeni in a branch of Fortín Sancarlino.

On the night of this Wednesday, June 30, the champions toured the main arteries of the department in a caravan. It can be said that practically all the neighbors were in the street and a single scream was heard…SAN CARLOS CHAMPION!!!!
