Santa Margarita

Coach: Chuck Morales (third year).

1995-96: 23-2-3, 7-1-2 in the Sea View League; was stunned by Los Alamitos, 1-0, in the Division I quarterfinals.

Key returners: Lizzie Atwood, defender, Sr.; Ami Aylor, midfielder, Sr.; Pa'tra Glavin, defender, Sr.; Laura Hayman, midfielder, Sr.; Erin McIntyre, defender, Sr.; Susie Mora, defender, Sr.; Kristen Rowe, forward, Sr.; Riki-Ann Serrins, goalkeeper, Sr.; Maresa Zanetti, midfielder, Sr.

Key newcomers: Lauren Cozzolino, defender, Fr.; Sunny Donathan, defender, Jr.; Casey Hamel, midfielder, Fr.; Sara Henderson, forward, Jr.; Keri Kennedy-Weber, defender, Sr.; Brooke Smith, forward, Sr.

Outlook: The Eagles will miss Southern Section offensive player of the year Annie Luke and first-team all-league selection Meagan Lingo. Eight starters return, however, including All-Southern Section selections Serrins and Rowe, and the Eagles will be a very experienced squad. Glavin is expected to be back at full strength after two knee surgeries a year ago and she will anchor the defense. Zanetti will be key in the midfield.
