Freedom was fearless — and Sharpless — on the way to a WPIAL girls soccer championship and a PIAA runner-up finish in Class A last fall.

The Bulldogs put together a 23-2 season and brought home their second WPIAL title in the sport in three seasons, led by freshman Jayden Sharpless, who scored a WPIAL-best 64 goals and distributed 23 assists.
The team is a good starting point for a look-back at the 2018 season.
Seneca Valley won its fifth district crown, all of them since 2007, while Oakland Catholic was a first-time champion and South Park a four-time winner.
