Senior Alex Green (5-8) is a returning varsity veteran who played a reserve role last season.
"She works really hard, really does a great job fundamentally on defense, we are just trying to get her to have a little more confidence offensively, but defensively, she is one of our most fundamental kids and that's really nice," Mohler said.
Sydnor's younger sister, Renny, also transferred from Pallotti, but the 5-9 sophomore guard will be out until January because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
"We have so many new players," said Mohler, noting seven of the 12 players on the roster are new to the varsity.
One of them is freshman guard Ashley Dickey, Jasmine's younger sister.
The Comets will also play Mount de Sales in the 6th annual Catonsville Cup tournament at 3:45 p.m. on Saturday, Dec 15, at Catonsville High.
That will follow the Catonsville boys varsity game against Mount St. Joseph at 2 p.m.
The day begins at 10:45 with the JV girls game between Catonsville and Mount de Sales and the Catonsville JV boys play Mount St. Joe at 12:15 p.m.
Charity funds for this year's event will be directed to Professor John P. Gearhart, M.D., Director Pediatric Urology, Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions,
Mohler is not sure what kind of team he will have in December, but anticipates improvement as they learn the system.
"Where last year, I knew we were good from the beginning, there was no question, this year, I believe we can be good, but we've got to work for it because I'm learning the kids too," he said. "We are going to hit some bumps and bruises I would expect and I've got to be patient and gear to get us to play to win our division and hopefully get back to the region and try and get back to SECU if we can."
The state tournament is held at Towson University's SECU Arena.
Joining the full-time coaching staff this year in place of Mandy Fisher, who will be a volunteer assistant along with former Comet player Maddie Hunt, is former player Taylor Barton.
"I'm very thrilled to have Taylor, to have one of your own back and she is really committed," said Mohler, noting Barton played at the University of Mary Washington. "The nice thing is she is right out of college, so all of her experience in college is still with her and she is bringing in a fresh perspective."
