The 2019 high school girls soccer season brought a lot of excitement to Tooele County, with record-breaking performances, impressive playoff runs and reason to be optimistic for the future.
Stansbury’s girls advanced to the state quarterfinals in Class 4A, and gave top-seeded Ogden a run for its money in a 1-0 loss. The Stallions finished third in Region 10 in head coach Spencer Call’s first season in charge, and will return some quality talent in 2020.
Grantsville’s Whitney Wangsgard broke the state’s all-time career goal-scoring record, and had the second-most goals in a single season in state history. She’ll be back next season to help lead a Cowboys team that set a school record for wins in a season and advanced to the second round of the Class 3A playoffs.
Tooele’s record didn’t reflect the kind of season the Buffaloes had, as they were competitive in most of their games against tough opposition. With a number of young players pressed into duty in key positions, there were some growing pains, but the Buffs will be better for it going forward.
