Trinity Academy won in 2014, and that's it.
The Knights are the only high school from the Wichita area to win a Kansas state championship in girls soccer in any classification. But with teams like Maize, Carroll and others becoming state powers, coaches in the Wichita area said they believe the drought is almost over.
Girls soccer in Kansas has become a monopoly, starting and almost always ending with a team from the Kansas City area holding another trophy. KC schools have 45 state championships. Topeka has five. Wichita has one. The rest of the state? None.
There are a few key factors at play in this dominance. Carroll coach Greg Rauch said it starts with a numbers game.
"I think the difference is the depth," Rauch said. "Some teams may have one, two, three very solid players, but when (Kansas City) teams pull players off the bench, they don't lose a beat.
"When you've got really solid players at No. 17, you're in a good position."
The population in the KC area is about three times Wichita's, according to 2015 U.S. census figures. Of course, Kansas City is split between two states, so only about half the kids in the KC Metro are eligible to play in Kansas, but there are still significantly more people, and therefore players, available.
East coach Dylan Gruntzel said having an MLS team in Kansas City has also boosted youth soccer there and kept Wichita at the status quo.
This is exponentially more important for private schools. Top players are competitively inclined to lean toward private schools because of the increased booster support than most public schools receive. That often translates to championships.
Private schools have one more state championship in girls soccer than public ones, despite having fewer than 20 percent of the schools. None have benefited more than St. Thomas Aquinas.
The Saints have the best of both worlds, one coach said. Aquinas plays in Overland Park just outside Kansas City, and players can attend no matter their address.
The Saints have won 16 state championships. Girls soccer has been accredited by the Kansas State High School Activities Association for only 25 years.
Maize coach Jay Holmes said the gap is closing, though. Aquinas lost 2-0 in last year's Class 5A championship game. Blue Valley Southwest, a public school, won. It was the first time a public school had won the Class 5A or 5-1A title since 2005.
"I think sometimes the girls see St. Thomas Aquinas, and it's like they're already down," Holmes said. "It's all about attitude and desire."
No private schools compete in Class 6A. Even when looking at public schools alone, Wichita falls far short in girls soccer titles compared with the rest of the state, particularly Kansas City.
Kansas City schools have 15 public school titles. Topeka has two. The rest of Kansas, including Wichita: none.
Holmes is entering his 11th year at Maize. He has seen competition when it was at its most lopsided. Wichita's best teams used to enter the state tournament and get run out by eight goals.
The past two years' tournaments set a strong example. Last season in Class 6A, East lost to eventual champion Blue Valley West 4-1. In 5A, Carroll held another eventual champ, Blue Valley Southwest, to a 1-0 result.
And in 2016, Kapaun beat Mill Valley 1-0 in the 5A semifinals, and Maize lost to Aquinas 3-1 with only 10 players on the field for most of the game.
These results aren't where Wichita-area coaches want them to be, but they are getting there.
Maize returns a strong defense and a handful of goal-scoring options this spring. Carroll has two of the top players in the area in Maguire Sullivan, who is committed to Kansas State, and Hanleigh Allen, the top returning scorer from 2017 with 33 goals. East is coming off a fourth-place finish in Class 6A, and Northwest finished second in the City League.
Even Maize South, a team expected to be in a rebuilding year after losing seven college-caliber players, has started the season 4-0 and won the McPherson Tournament.
The Wichita-area coaches have a great deal of respect for one another. They all mentioned other teams when they had a chance to promote their own.
They understand they face two challenges. The first: getting another state championship back to Wichita. The second: getting a public school to do it.
With a booming population, increased youth soccer participation and competitiveness at the high school level, Maize South coach Marlon Rios said he can feel it building.
"It's coming soon," Rios said.
