Not to put any pressure on the Skyline High School girls soccer team, but after ranking third in state and at one point being ranked No. 1 in the country in 2010, some teams in the balanced 4A KingCo Conference might be out to get the Spartans in 2011.

Having lost eight varsity members to graduation, Skyline returns 11 key starters this year to fill some gaps left around the field.

While the 2010 team had standouts like Brittanee Randle, who now plays at Missouri, and Madi Barney, now at Central Florida, Skyline won’t rely on a few stars, but on everyone doing an equal part, coach Don Braman said.

“I look at it like it’s a totally new puzzle,” Braman said. “I don’t look at it like there’s new holes in it.”

The Spartans will look to some of its top returnees for leadership. They include senior defender Jackie Wilson, senior midfielders Maddie Christ and Nicole Candioglos, senior goalkeeper Tina Vargas — considered one of the best keepers in the state.

Vargas, bound for the University of Denver, recorded 14 shutouts last season. Wilson, Christ and Vargas all earned first-team all-KingCo honors last fall.
