With the 2019 high school soccer season getting underway last week, the Deseret News has compiled capsules for every team in Class 4A.

The region rankings are based on coaches' preseason projections. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information on their team.

There are seven new soccer coaches in 4A this year: Dustin Schaible (Canyon View), Tim Graham (Lehi), Jerry Johnson (Salem Hills), Kinnon Oldaker (Uintah), William Echeverria (Ben Lomond), Jared Anderson (Bonneville) and Natalie Norris (Logan)

Here's a region-by-region look at all 27 teams in 4A.

We have five returning starters and several players with a good amount of varsity playing time and playoff experience. A very young group of athletic and skilled players that will be ready to compete with any team in 4A. We will focus one game at a time and work our way as a team to compete for the 4A State championship.”

Pine View will be a young team this year with only six returning seniors from last year’s team.
