Coach: Katie Drovdahl
Key returners: Seniors Maya Fletcher and Avery Pujolar, and juniors Arden De Lanoy and Grace Rich
Outlook: Bainbridge fell short of expectations last season after reaching No. 3 in the rankings. However, the Spartans should still be a force to be reckoned with in the Olympic League.

2022 record: 13-5 (12-3)
Coach: Travis Rider
Key players: Senior Evelyn Beers and sophomore Syleena Hogan
Outlook: North Kitsap lost many of its top players. Even though the Vikings still sit toward the top of the league, their young players will need to step up early and often for a good postseason run.
Schedule: Sept. 5, 6 p.m. at Klahowya; Sept. 7, at North Mason; Sept. 12, at Bainbridge; Sept. 14, Bremerton; Sept. 19, at Kingston; Sept. 21, at Sequim; Sept. 26, Port Angeles; Oct. 3, North Mason; Oct. 5, Bainbridge; Oct. 10, at Bremerton; Oct. 12, Kingston; Oct. 17, Sequim; Oct. 19, at Port Angeles; Oct. 24, Olympic
2022 record: 2-13 (2-12)
Coach: Craig Smith
Key Players: Senior Leighton Menge and junior Katie Zehrung
Outlook: Kingston lost many players but return its two all-league players. The Bucs should be strong defensively but need to find goal-scorers and playmakers if they want to field a competitive squad.
Schedule: Sept. 12, at Port Angeles; Sept. 14, Olympic; Sept. 19. North Kitsap; Sept. 21, at Bainbridge; Sept. 26, Bremerton; Sept. 28, at North Mason; Oct. 3, at Sequim; Oct. 5, Port Angeles; Oct. 10, at Olympic; Oct. 12, at North Kitsap; Oct. 17, Bainbridge; Oct. 19, at Bremerton; Oct. 24, North Mason; Oct. 26, Sequim
2022 record: 7-12 (5-11)
Coach: Steve Haggerty
Key players: Junior Kaylee Cushman and sophomore Seraphina Bell
Outlook: Olympic started last season well before falling into an offensive slump, failing to score a goal in 10 consecutive games. If the Trojans can continue to improve offensively, they will continue to climb the Olympic League rankings.
Schedule: Sept. 5, 7 p.m. at Shelton; Sept. 9, 1 p.m., Highline; Sept. 12, at Bremerton; Sept. 14, at Kingston; Sept. 21, at Port Angeles; Oct. 3, at Bainbridge; Oct. 5, Bremerton; Oct. 10, Kingston; Oct. 12, at Sequim; Oct. 17, Port Angeles; Oct. 19, at North Mason; Oct. 24, at North Kitsap
2022 record: 7-9 (6-8)
Coach: Lindsey Dahl
Key players: Seniors Marisol Popoca-Pablo and Sophia Loperman
Outlook: The Knights lost the league MVP and some of their top players. If the younger players can step up, they should be able to have a similar record.

2022 record: 10-6-1 (10-5-1)
Coach: Christina Avery
Key players: Senior Rachael Remnet and sophomores Theresa Castro and Prestle Agana

Coach: Bill Conley
Key players: Seniors Lauren Dickerson, Melanie Rojas Perez, Mya O’Shauhnessy, Hailey Deese and Grace Widergren
Outlook: South Kitsap went from the bottom of the league to the middle of the standings. With a solid group of seniors and an experienced younger core, the Wolves should be near the middle of the pack again.
Schedule: Sept. 14, 7 p.m at Olympia; Sept. 19, Graham-Kapowsin; Sept. 21, Bethel; Sept. 26, at Curtis; Sept. 28, Sumner; Oct. 3, Puyallup; Oct. 5, at Bellarmine; Oct. 10, Emerald Ridge; Oct. 12, at Sumner; Oct. 17, Curtis; Oct. 19, at Puyallup; Oct. 23, Bellarmine; Oct. 25, at Rogers

2021 record: 19-1-1 (15-0-1)
Coach: Troy Oelschlager
Key players: Senior Ali Divano and juniors Amira Lyons and Ella Bottalico
Outlook: Klahowya captured a state title last season and returns three of its top four stars. Plus, their lone loss last season came against one of the best 3A schools in the country. The Eagles can be destined for another title this season.
