Coach Comment: "2017 was another fantastic season for SCHS girls soccer, with an outright Region 9 championship and a deep playoff run. The season ended with a shootout loss to Bonneville in the state semifinals. We graduated a key group of seniors that had been the foundation of the success we have enjoyed for the last four seasons. We return a number of skilled and experiences players, but there are openings in the starting XI. We have a great group of juniors and underclassmen that are ready to step up and earn their spots and continue our tradition of excellence.
