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.
