QUEEN CREEK, AZ--The Queen Creek High School girls' soccer team is ready for a big season after winning its first tournament game in girls soccer history last year.
The team is full of experience with eight seniors on the roster, with many of those players playing together for the last few years.
"We have a strong midfield and a great group of transfers who will definitely help us win some games this year," said fourth-year head coach Abel Corral.
Corral took a team with a consistent losing record to a team with 11 wins in the 2015-16 season and a total 18 wins last season, including the team's first win in the state tournament.
The Dogs are returning multiple standouts from last year's roster, including sophomore Sophia Serna, who was named the San Tan Region Player of the Year.
"Sophia broke several records last year and will be a player to watch," said Corral. "Senior Brooke Baldwin led the state in assists last year and senior Jillian Lawler scored the game winner in our playoff game last season. Sophomore Randie Holmes is returning as one of the best defenders in the region."
With a lot of upperclassmen on the roster, sophomores Serna and Holmes will be joined by five other sophomores and newcomer freshman Karis Pennington.
The team is already off to a quick start, yet to lose a game this season, at 5-0. They play today in the Coyote Classic against Mountain Pointe and their next home game will be on Wednesday, the 13th against North Canyon at 6 p.m.
