Danville soccer team earns preseason ranking
Soccer season opens today with one area team ranked in the preseason boys poll. Danville, which made the state final four for the first time last season, is ranked 15th in the coaches poll. The Admirals went 18-4-3 last season, ending their season with a 2-1 loss to Greenwood in the state semifinals.
The girls coaches did not vote on a preseason poll, but it’s a good bet that Boyle County would be ranked if there was one. The Lady Rebels were the area’s winningest team last year at 19-4-1, and they return a wealth of talent.
Boyle’s girls have an interesting opener Tuesday night against perennial power Woodford County in the first of a three-game round-robin at Henry Clay, while Danville’s boys open their season Saturday at Bourbon County.
