COMMENTS: The good news for the rest of the state: Marian’s leading scorer is graduating. The bad news: No state tournament team had fewer seniors on its roster than the Crusaders’ three. They’ll start the year as the Class A favorite again, but will get pushed by plenty. Millard North and Millard West will both have major holes to fill, but their cupboards will hardly be empty. Southwest loses Class A’s all-time leading scorer, but had 49 goals this year from its freshmen and sophomores. Westside brings back all but one of its goals from this season. Millard South has standouts on both ends in forward Lindsey Prokop and keeper Maddie Smith, both sophomores.

COMMENTS: Back-to-back titles for Class B’s most successful program didn’t come without work. Of the SkyHawks’ final eight matches, four were decided in shootouts — including a win over Elkhorn South in the state semifinals. Skutt will have to replace leading scorer Jess Schlautman, who scored twice in the title match, but won’t lack for returning talent. The same can be said for the rest of the top five teams. Elkhorn South loses only four seniors, one more than runner-up Scotus. Gretna returns almost all of its key contributors, and Elkhorn brings back perhaps the top player in the state in Creighton recruit Skylar Heinrich and her 38 goals.
