Soccer preview: Lake Norman, Hough, North Meck, Hopewell

For most of the last decade, the Lake Norman area has produced some of the best teams in the state.

In fact, Lake Norman and North Mecklenburg's boys' soccer teams have each appeared in two of the last five state championships. The Wildcats won 3A titles in both 2006 and 2007 while North Meck lost in the championship game those same years.

Last season, for the first time Lake Norman and North Meck played in the same conference, the I-Meck, easily making it one of the best leagues in the state.

Several teams area were a factor in the playoffs in 2009 and should be again this season.
