It was evident in last year's state title run and figures to remain the case when nearly all of the squad's key members return this season — the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy soccer team has a plethora of offensive stars who, when working together, can make scoring look effortless.
In a 2009-10 campaign that saw the team go unbeaten in the Mission League, reach the CIF Southern Section Division II semifinals and win the first CIF Southern California Regional crown (Division III) in program history, the Tologs scored 72 goals, had a pair of starting forwards finish with 23 and 19 goals, respectively, and had six different players register double-digit points.
But they only have one Jill Jacobs.
"She's just one of those all-around good players who is well-respected on and off the field by all of her teammates and even the coaches," Tologs senior co-captain Alyssa Conti says. "She went a little under the radar. She wasn't really noticed, but in those huge games, she was the one who pulled through for us. When we needed it, out of nowhere, [she] just came up with a big goal."
