Olympic Girls Soccer | Fall Sports Preview

Olympic Girls Soccer

Head coach: Steve Haggerty

2018 record: 15-5 (10-2 Olympic)

Key players: Kiarra Richards, sr., M; Melenia Wright, jr., D; Kaya McGill, sr., GK; Aalysia Mitchell, sr., M.

Outlook: The Trojans lost a big group of seniors off of last year’s 2A state playoff qualifier, so it will be up to a new generation of players to carry the torch. Replacing 58 goals (including a combined 45 from Hanna Troy and Gabby Luty) won’t be easy. Richards is the leading returning scorer with 12 goals and nine assists last season, followed by Mitchell, who had a goal and five assists. Olympic always seems to find itself in the hunt for a playoff berth and another high finish would be quite an accomplishment with this younger group of players.

Schedule: Sept. 11, 7 p.m. at Steilacoom | Sept. 12, 6:45 p.m. at Bremerton | Sept. 17, 6:45 p.m. at North Mason | Sept. 19, 6:45 p.m., Sequim | Sept. 24, 6:45 p.m., Tumwater | Sept. 26, 6:45 p.m., Kingston | Sept. 27, 3:30 p.m. at Cascade | Oct. 1, 6:45 p.m. at North Kitsap | Oct. 3, 6:45 p.m., Port Angeles | Oct. 8, 6:45 p.m., Bremerton | Oct. 10, 6:45 p.m., North Mason | Oct. 15, 6:45 p.m. at Sequim | Oct. 17, 6:45 p.m., Klahowya | Oct. 22, 6:45 p.m. at Kingston | Oct. 24, 6:45 p.m., North Kitsap | Oct. 29, 6:45 p.m. at Port Angeles.
