2015 High School Soccer

For the first time, all three Tooele County schools saw their girls soccer teams advance to the Class 3A state tournament.

Stansbury, led by high-scoring senior striker Michaela Didericksen, finished second in Region 10 this season. Didericksen scored 39 goals for the second consecutive season, giving her a school-record 111 goals for her career.

Tooele finished third in Region 10 with a largely inexperienced roster. The Buffaloes relied on a strong defense and solid goalkeeping to keep them competitive throughout the season, with only one of their losses coming by more than three goals — a 7-1 loss to Logan in the first round of the state tournament. Coach Stephen Duggan’s team will have all but two players back from this year’s squad, giving them a huge advantage going into next season.

Grantsville advanced to the postseason for the first time in the program’s brief history, showing marked improvement. The Cowboys lost to Juan Diego in the first round of the state tournament, but posted wins over Juab, Layton Christian and Union during the regular season to take a major step forward.
