The Lady Rams are focused on the fundamentals going into the season under first-year coach Jeff Denger.
Denger wants to see his team moving the ball with intensity. And he hopes that focus will lead to success in the district playoffs. He also feels his team has depth, adding that his players are competing for time going into the season.
“I don’t know exactly where it’s all going to fall,” Denger said of his starting lineup.
The Lady Rams return 13 letterwinners, including a trio of 2015 Mountain League All-Stars in first-team selection Alyssa Denger and second-team selections Hailee Wingard and Keira Whitman.
Jeff Denger has coached recreational soccer for the last 8-10 years in the area and worked with many of the players on the team in the past.
He didn’t want to miss out on this opportunity when the job opened.
“I don’t want to look back 20 years from now and say, ‘Man, I wish I would have done that,’” Denger said.
