As the high school season is about set to begin on Friday, for the first time, Pittsburgh Soccer Now will be doing our best to help you get to know some of the players and schools in the area this coming season.

Yesterday, Ryan Kelly took a look at the boys.

WPIAL boys soccer players to watch (2019)

Below is our list of top girls players in the region. Since girls often make college commitments earlier than boys, we’ve also included the schools that many on on this list have already committed along with the club they train and compete with year-round if applicable.

Putting together these lists can be a bit daunting, and it’s very easy for some players who deserve recognition to be left off, but at least at the start of the season we can provide those getting ready to follow another season of high school soccer in Western Pennsylvania with a list of players that know about.

As the season progresses, we’ll be watching for more as it’s always great to see other players emerge from the shadows.

Here is a list of the top players in the area — and it also includes the area clubs they compete with — and college commitments. (Editors note: there area few players listed at the bottom of the list that have made college commitments or are ineligible, that won’t be competing in WPIAL this Fall)
