Kylee Morgan

Davis | Defender | Senior

As the leader of one of the best defensive units in the state, Morgan's play was paramount in her team allowing only eight goals on the season and totaling 13 shutouts. On offense, her free-kick skills gave Davis yet another offensive weapon, and she also racked up 13 assists on set-piece opportunities. "The other girls knew that they didn't have to be perfect because Kylee would be there to help them out and cover them," Davis coach Souli Phongsavath said. "She read the game really well, she's fantastic in the air and her set pieces are very, very dangerous. We lost our whole back line last year, so we needed her to step in and take control of the defense."




Lauren Jones

American Fork | Defender | Senior

Known as the Cavemen's "Silent Assassin," Jones was the strongest defender on a team that matched Davis in goals allowed (8) and shutouts (13). While Jones is not a very talkative leader, American Fork coach Derek Dunn said that she led her teammates by example. "Lauren is not the most vocal woman, but she knows where to be, when to be there, how to get her defense organized, and she works really well with our keeper," Dunn said. "She's a leader on the field by the way she plays."

Maddie Gill

Skyline | Defender | Senior

The "heart and soul of the defense" according to Skyline coach Yamil Castillo, Gill's play led to nine shutouts for the Eagles, with only 14 goals allowed all season (five of which came in their final game against Timpview in the 4A semifinals). "She's strong, feisty and not afraid to attack the ball," Castillo said. "She's also a great organizer in the back. Her leadership and her attitude are very important. When I'm looking around at players and how they contribute to the team both on and off the field, she stands out."

Callie Burt

Lone Peak | Defender | Senior

The outside-back was instrumental in shutting down opposing forwards and then getting her team turned around and heading towards goal on offense. "Callie is great with her one-on-one defending, and she's very patient with the forwards she is up against," Lone Peak coach Heather Dahl said. "More importantly, she reads the offensive buildup of the other team and knows when to step in quickly before we lose control. She's very quick and has the ability to make those quick decisions, win the ball from the forwards, then move us out of the back and into our offense." Burt, an Air Force Academy commit, was the focal point of a defense that only allowed 13 goals all season.
