League: Class 4A Desert
Head coach: Ryan Quinn, 15th season
2017 record: 8-10-2 (6-5-1 Southwest/fourth)
Returning lettermen (starters): Eleven (four)
Top athletes: D Eduardo Perez (Jr.), MF Stefano Villagomez (Sr.), MF Jadon Jeffery (Sr.), MF Eduardo Garcia (So.), GK Chance Witt (Jr.)
Outlook: The Mountain Lions return 11 lettermen, but only four starters after losing key contributors.
Among those who should see more of an expanded role this year are Villagomez (3 assists), Jeffery (1 goal, 2 assists), Garcia, Perez and Witt (33 saves).
“We graduated most of the starting lineup from last year, but we have a good mix of returners ready to step up and some new players to the program that are looking to make an immediate impact,” Quinn said. “We are in a slight rebuild year, but will look to surprise some teams.”
