Preps coordinator Colin Likas offers his final rankings for the 2017-18 boys' soccer season:

1. Urbana (16-5-3): Bennett Anderson (16 goals, 13 assists) and Magnus Parente (18 goals, nine assists) will graduate, leaving junior Pablo Diaz (nine goals) as the top returning scorer in 2018.

2. Uni High (21-3-2): Rahi (37 goals, 18 assists) and Omeed (11 goals, 11 assists) Miraftab-Salo step aside, as does Paul D'Angelo (22 goals, 17 assists) for the Class 1A super-sectional qualifiers.

3. St. Thomas More (23-3-1): Joe Hoffman's standout career ends with 43 goals this season, but sophomore Joe Sellett's 23 assists, second in the area, return in 2018 for the 1A sectional finalists.

4. Mahomet-Seymour (16-5-3): Trevor Burgess' area-leading 26 assists won't return next season, but junior Austin Carr will hope to expand on his 24 goals as the Bulldogs seek a 2A regional crown.

5. Iroquois West (18-6-1): A balanced Raiders outfit loses Jovanny Ayala (13 goals) but returns sophomores Diego Camarena (13 goals) and Angel Barajas (11 goals) and junior Omar Camarena (11 goals).

6. Fisher/GCMS (11-5-4): Half of a solid 1-2 Bunnies' punch is gone in Alec Johnson (18 goals, 11 assists), while junior Caleb Bleich (17 goals, 15 assists) likely will take off the top leader role.

7. Blue Ridge (14-9-3): Landon Mangenheimer (18 goals, 15 assists) takes with him a big chunk of the Knights' offense, which sophomore Brendan Flannell (15 goals) and Co. will try to replace.

8. B-H/R-A (12-8): Good news for the Blue Devils: Sophomore Drew Reifsteck is back after posting 2017 team highs in goals (31) and assists (nine) for a program that reached a Class 1A regional final.

9. Judah Christian (7-9-3): Co-captains Paul Limentato and Tyler Alt graduate, but sophomore leading scorer Joseph Linsner (13 goals) will key a Tribe group with 15 underclassmen.

10. Centennial (9-12-3): Portugal transfer student Francisco Andrade (23 goals) leaves a void that junior Shannon Borukhovich (six goals) and others will look to fill next season.
