Consistently warmer weather may not have arrived, but that hasn't stopped the local squads at Bryn Mawr, Lutheran, Maryvale, Roland Park, St. Paul's and Friends from striving for a successful season.

Read on to see who will play for your favorite team.

Bryn Mawr

2013 record: 11-5

Coach Wendy Kridel's quote: "Bryn Mawr is going to be a team that gets stronger every time it competes."

Breakdown: Senior Peyton Capute (William Smith College) and Georgia Carroll (Middlebury) spearhead an attack with junior Hadley Brown (Vanderbilt).

The unit also boasts promising sophomore Bridget Danko.

Juniors dominate on the midfield with Alex Argo (Princeton), Julie Blaze (Vanderbilt) and Julia Feiss (Denver) taking charge for the Mawrtians.

Senior defender Katie Groenke (Franklin and Marshall) and first-year senior starter Maggie Kane (Richmond) anchor the defense with junior Maddie Stuzin (Columbia) and freshmen Abby Fisher, Sophie Murphy and Joanna Levin.

There still could be an issue of team maturity for a Bryn Mawr squad that lacks significant game experience.

After all, the Mawrtians have dropped their first two games for the first time in at least a decade, including an 8-7 setback to archival Roland Park on March 19.

"Graduating nine seniors leaves us with a lot of less seasoned players in the lineup," Kridel said.. "Thankfully, our team has great leadership and loves to compete."


2013 record: 13-4

Coach Mandy Hudson’s quote: “I know (other league) teams graduated a lot of players. It was our year not to lose many.”

Breakdown: The Quakers return nine starters.

That means they are likely the team to beat for an Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference championship.

Friends is in the running for a title every year under Hudson, a fourth-year coach.

The Quakers won it all in 2012 and lost in the final last year and 2011.

“This year, we have a very unselfish team,” Hudson said. “They really rely on each other to play hard. I think they really have grown.”
