As the high school girls soccer season prepares to officially start up in Western Pennsylvania this week (first games are set to be played on Friday), we are pleased to share Preseason Players to Watch list for the 2023 season by classification.

These are preliminary lists based mostly returning players who earned All-WPIAL honors in the 2022 season and those who landed on Tribune-Review and Moe Rosensteel Award watch lists.

As always, we look forward to seeing many other players develop and come to the forefront of our attention during the course of the 2023 season.

We look forward to another season of coverage on Pittsburgh Soccer Now, which will culminate with the WPIAL Playoffs including the return of the Finals for each of the eight Boys and Girls classifications at Highmark Stadium in early November and the PIAA (State) playoffs which will follow.
