The Davis (Kaysville, Utah) girls soccer team is on top of the mountain again.
The Darts pulled off the national championship repeat in flawless fashion to sit at No. 1 in the final USA TODAY Sports/National Soccer Coaches Association of America Super 25 for girls fall soccer.
After losing six Division I players from last year’s team, Davis went 20-0, won their third consecutive state title and ran their state-record winning streak to 44 games.
On the season, Davis scored 112 goals and allowed just eight. The Darts outscored their opposition in the postseason by 13-1, with the lone goal coming in a 2-1 victory in the 5A title game against Fremont (Plain City).
The Darts did not lack for superstars at every level.
Olivia Wade had 42 goals, the top total in the state, and added 22 assists. She scored in all but one of Davis’ postseason games. Mikayla Colohan had 28 goals – more than in her three previous season combined — and 35 assists.
Then add in more 5A all-state first-teamers in senior midfielder Ellie Robinson, senior defense Kylee Morgan and junior goalkeeper Kendyl Baker, who had three playoff shutouts.
Glastonbury (Conn.) went 20-0 and won its third consecutive state title to finish at No. 2 in the rankings. The school’s win streak now stands at 60 games, including back-to-back undefeated seasons. Glastonbury became the first school to win three consecutive Class LL titles since Trumbull finished its three-peat in 2008.
Penn (Mishawaka, Ind.) went 23-0-1 and won the Class 2A state championship, its first state title, to finish No. 3.
Spencerport (N.Y.) went 22-0-1 and also won its first state title to land at No. 4 in the final rankings.
Hunterdon Central (Flemington, N.J.) also won its first state title, taking home the Group 4 crown with a record of 22-0-1. It finished at No. 5 in the rankings.
Three new teams make the final rankings: No. 13 Camas (Wash.), No. 22 Arbor View (Las Vegas) and No. 23 Moon (Moon Township, Pa.). Arbor View had received votes last week.
In all, 14 states were represented in the final Super 25. New York led with four teams, followed by three from Massachusetts, Tennessee and two each from New Jersey, Maryland, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
