The girls showcase game features a Falls Road rivalry between A Conference foes St. Paul’s School for Girls and Maryvale Prep.
SPSG finished the 2018 season with a 10-6 record in coach Mary Gagnon’s second year in charge of the Gators.
Last year SPSG announced that it is a program on the rise by advancing to the conference semifinal round before falling to perennial power McDonogh.
This year the Gators welcome back a young, but talented roster that will look to senior midfielder Shelton Sawers for leadership.
Coach Kim Dubansky is entering her second season at Maryvale Prep.
The Lions will depend upon a strong senior class to improve upon last year’s 9-8 mark.
Seniors Claire Bockstie and Paige Wilkinson will lead the way on attack.
The midfield features talented two-way player Sophia Antonopoulos while the defense is anchored by Mary Christa McWright and Kristina Lysik.
