Albuquerque Academy was the third city school to be in the 4A semifinals last season, and the Chargers feature senior forward Anna Babinski, who was a goal-scoring machine with 52 goals last year.
All-state junior midfielder Piper Wiese, daughter of head coach Andrew Wiese, returns after missing last season with a knee injury. Academy also has a pair of excellent goalkeepers.
“I’m very bullish,” coach Wiese said. “We’re very young … (they) will be important to us moving forward, and I’m cautiously optimistic.”
