It's been roughly 8 months since the Ontario girls soccer team lost in the Division III state championship game in double overtime to Bishop Fenwick, but the bitter taste is still very much in their mouths.

At a summer camp the team is putting on this week, a group of returning senior's all agreed that making it to last years championship match was a great experience, but walking away with the 2nd place trophy was difficult to swallow. They are determined to get back the state finals this season and may just have the talent to do it.

The Warriors lost just 2 senior's from last years 18-3-1 squad and will return 17 letterman. Head coach Larry Atkinson says the team also expects to have the biggest freshman class in program history.

Ontario has yet to drop a game in summer play, despite playing against some top competition. Atkinson says his team looks to be sharp and in great shape as the high school season begins to close in.

The Warriors will play at the Division II level this upcoming season and have beefed up their non-conference schedule as well. They will open the regular season at home on August 20 against Akron St Vincent St Mary.
