Snow Canyon, which took second at the state tournament, won its first game at nationals in dramatic fashion, defeating Saint Josephs Academy (Ohio) 12-11 on penalty kicks. Alexis Mild and Janel Prince led the Warriors in that game. They lost 10-5 in the semifinals to Armstrong (Minn.). SC’s top players were Madi Yates and Myra Auble.

Yates, Auble and Prince were all named to the All-Tournament Team by USA Junior All-American coach Danielle Miller.
