2014 Virgin Valley Girls Soccer Capsule


Head coach: Bob Snell, 15th season

2013 record: 9-7-5 (6-4-2 Sunrise, third)

Returning letter winners (starters): Nine (five)

Top athletes: MF Emma Dodenbier (Sr.), F Abbie Barnum (So.), GK Spencer Green (Jr.), MF Marlene Quirarte (Jr.), D/MF Kennedi Ludvigson (So.)

Outlook: Graduation wasn’t kind to the Bulldogs, who lost three of their four defenders and three of their top four scorers.

Barnum returns after scoring 22 goals as a freshman, and the Bulldogs welcome back Green in goal.

“We are counting on players moving up from a solid junior varsity team, as well as a strong incoming freshmen class,” Snell said. “We have talent, but are young and inexperienced at the varsity level. If things come together, we could have a special season.

“We want to build on the success of last season. We could fly under the radar.”
