WDA coaches tab Minot again in preseason girls' soccer poll

 The official site of the Western Dakota Association

BISMARCK -- Defending state and WDA champion Minot High received seven first place votes and is again the pick to win the WDA regular season girls' soccer title, according to conference coaches. The Majettes earned 49 points and the most first place votes allowable, since coaches cannot vote for their own team.

Bismarck High was second in voting with 41 points. Mandan was third with 38 points. The Braves picked up the other first place vote.

Voting also revealed not much separation in the middle of the pack. Legacy was fourth (26 points); Jamestown was fifth (25) and Century was sixth (24). St. Mary's was seventh with 12 points while newcomer Williston finished eighth with nine points.

Teams received seven points for a first place vote; six for second place; five for third place; four points for fourth place; three points for fifth place; two points for sixth; and one point for seventh place. Coaches did not include their team in voting. The annual poll was conducted by WDA Executive Secretary Matt Mullally.
