South Kitsap girls soccer | Fall Sports Preview

GIRLS SOCCER

Head coach: K-Lee Haynes

2017 record: 4-9-3

Returners: Lillian Lutovsky, So., Teanna Lathum, Sr., Zamira Lightfoot, Jr., Eliza Villarma, Sr.

Key players: Lily Lutovsky, So., M/D; Eliza Villarma, Sr., F; Teanna Lathum, Sr., F; McKenna Wheeler, Jr., D; Kelly Williams, Sr., D; Megan Nail, Sr., G.

Outlook: The Wolves look poised to return to the postseason with what is still a relatively young team. Many of the top players were freshmen and sophomores last year and they faded a bit as the season wore on, just missing out on the playoffs. A tough SPSL schedule is augmented with some early games against good 3A schools such as Central Kitsap and Peninsula, which should help prepare the team for those crucial late October games.

Sept. 8, 2 p.m. at Kingston

Sept. 12, 7 p.m., Klahowya

Sept. 18, 7 p.m., Olympia

Sept. 20, 7 p.m., Puyallup
