Coach's comments: "The girls have worked very hard; they've done everything I've asked them to do. The team looks pretty good in practice."
The Carroll County Sun's outlook: Before she took a break from coaching to spend time with her young family, Brown was undefeated for two seasons. She hasn't been away long enough to lose her touch, and her team will quickly refresh her memory with four experienced seniors, plenty of depth on the bench and some fairly tall players. The Owls will be among the top three teams in the county. And, as usual, county teams should dominate in the Central Maryland Conference.
