2017 Sierra Vista Boys Soccer Capsule


League: Class 4A Southwest

Head coach: Ryan Quinn, 14th season

2016 record: 5-13-2 (4-6-2 Southwest, sixth)

Returning lettermen (starters): Thirteen (seven)

Top athletes: F Daniel Perez (Sr.), MF Tanner Erwin (Sr.), D Jared Prescia (Sr.), D Eduardo Perez (So.), GK Donovan McCree (Sr.)

Outlook: The Mountain Lions’ sixth-place finish in the Southwest League last year is deceiving as the team was just three points out of third place and narrowly missed a playoff berth.

Thirteen players return from that squad.

Perez (14 goals) and Erwin (3 goals, 4 assists) should be among the leaders on offense. McCree (3 shutouts), Prescia and Perez are back to guide the defense.

“We are a senior-heavy team that is looking to get into one of the playoff spots in the Southwest League,” Quinn said.
