Coach: Kyle Nelson.
2018: 2-12-1; 1-9, sixth in conference.
Returning letter winners: seniors Tia Wurzrainer (captain; first-team, all-league defender in 2018), Natalie Hollrigel, Avalon Renninger (captain), Mallory Korteum (captain), Anna Dion; juniors Mollie Bailey, Genna Wright; sophomores Mary Milnes, Audrianna Shaw.
Key newcomers: sophomores Sophia Martin, Eryn Wood.
Coach’s comment: “My goal is to form a well-organized, disciplined, exciting-to-watch squad; and with anyone who watches us play this year seeing improvement through the course of the season.
“I would like to finish with a berth to the postseason.”
Strengths: Starters returning to most positions; experienced players to fill the holes.
Weakness: “It can take a while for both the defense and the new players to fully integrate.”
Note: The Wolves will field a junior varsity for the first time in many years, giving Nelson “a chance to have more playing time for all the players.”
First competition: at Oak Harbor Jamboree, 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5.
First match: Meridian at Coupeville, 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7.
