Key newcomers: Lavelle Banks, Sr.; Kalil Gore, So.; Trevon Mosely, So.
Outlook: "This year, the future looks very promising for us," first-year head coach Head said. "With senior leadership at key positions, it will help me transition into my first year a little easier. The team is extremely athletic and quick, and getting familiar with each other and the staff is the most important thing at this point. Joppatowne is a in rebuilding situation with the program, and there's a tremendous amount of excitement in the community, and within the program."
Head coach: Jeff Burrows (fourth season)
2010-11 record: 19-5
Key returning players: Rodney Barnett, Sr. (G); Nick Tittle, Jr. (G); Ryan Stinar, Sr. (F)
Key newcomers: Eric Bayer, Jr. (G); Brock Hurley, Jr. (C); Max Mullin, Jr. (G)
Outlook: Last season's Susquehanna Division front runners and surprise UCBAC champions after upsetting Havre de Grace in the conference title game, the newly promoted Hawks will not have an easy time of things in the Chesapeake.
"We have our work cut out for us," coach Burrows said. "We graduated eight seniors who accounted for the majority of our scoring and rebounding. The key this year will be for somebody to step up and take a leadership role. We have some talent returning in Tittle, Barnett and Stinar, but somebody has to fill the big shoes of our departing front court. Hurley has the skill set to be a low-post scorer. We should be able to push the ball more this year. With the move to the upper division, our schedule is harder, but we are looking forward to the challenge. If we continue to work hard like we have so far in the pre-season, we will be fine."
Head coach: Jeroud Clark (fifth season)
2010-11 record: 18-5
Key returning players: J.J. Butler, Sr. (G); Garett Burkhead, Sr. (G); Brandon Burris, Sr. (G); Matt Golczewski, Sr. (G); Donte Johnson, Sr. (G); Jay Kuhn, Sr. (F)
Key newcomers: Andrew Bonds, Jr. (G); Malik Bonds, So. (G); Mike Reed, Jr. (G)
Outlook: Coach Clark had a plain-and-simple outlook for the Huskies 2011-12 campaign: "We hope to compete each game, and continue to get better each day throughout the season. Along with that, we want to continue to work hard, and hope to be in the mix at the end of the season."
