Century, outside hitter, senior
This will be Bonzelet’s fourth year as a starter for the Knights, and she will lead Century’s attack. She came on late last season and had a breakout year, leading the underrated Knights to a regional final appearance.
Arundel, setter, senior
The quarterback of a loaded team, Eldredge returns as an All-Metro first-team player. Her coach calls her “detailed and disciplined,” and she will be counted on to be a leader for the area’s top team.
Liberty, outside hitter, junior
The Lions struggled a little last season, but Leiner was one of the bright spots for traditionally powerful Liberty. Though not physically imposing at 5 feet 10, the junior has a huge vertical leap and can play any position.
Towson, outside hitter, senior
An All-Metro first-team player last year, Mandreja had a great season leading the Generals to the state semifinals. Towson lost a lot to graduation from last year, but keeps probably the best player in Baltimore County.
Arundel, middle hitter, junior
Her coach calls her an explosive player who has a great vertical leap. Meehan’s leadership and command of the offense will be needed if Arundel is to take the next step at the state level.
Archbishop Spalding, outside hitter, sophomore
The daughter of former Maryland basketball star Derrick Lewis, she assumed a prominent role for the Cavaliers last year and just got better as the season went on. Spalding will count on her for most of its offense.
St. Paul’s, Middle hitter, senior
After playing in the shadow of Jillian Randolph last year, Peoples, an All-Metro second-team player, will lead the Gators. She has committed to Ithaca for volleyball.
Centennial, setter, senior
The Eagles have high expectations again this year, and Przybyla’s ability as a leader will be instrumental. An instinctive player, she is like another coach on the floor.
Westminster, outside hitter, sophomore
An All-Metro second-team selection last year, Widener was the Carroll County Player of the Year as a freshman. She will be counted on to provide most of the offense for the improving Owls.
Atholton, outside hitter, junior
A second team All-Metro selection, Zoch was the leader of a team that won the area’s only state championship last season. Her experience will be crucial if the Raiders are to return to College Park.
