With the 2018 high school girls soccer season getting underway this week in what should be another fantastic season, the Deseret News has compiled capsules for every 6A team in the state with information on what to expect this season.

Region 1 Capsules — 1. Syracuse Titans

2018 Schedule
Head Coach: Taylor Allen (5th year)

Gabby Bugtong, MF, Sr.
Coach Comment: "We return nearly all of our starters from 2017, including all six of our all-staters, from last year’s state finalist team. We will get back two starters from 2016 who had season ending injuries prior to the start of last year, which should help us with our depth. We should be much more seasoned and deeper due to the experiences that we had with our young team last season. That being said we expect American Fork and Region 4 to be better and deeper than last season, same goes for the teams from Region 1. It should be an incredibly tough region, as always, and great preparation for the state tournament."

Coach Comment: "This year’s team hasn't changed much from last year. We lost two starters, but just as years past those players have prepared the upcoming classmen for this year’s challenges. With nine returning starters we hope to be better than last year. Even though winning a state championship was amazing and a great achievement these girls aren’t done achieving their goals. We are excited with the young classmen coming in and getting the chance to learn from our core group of girls. This group is very tight knit and holds each other accountable on and off the field. We all can’t wait to get this season underway."
