Baltimore County capsules

Arlington Baptist Eagles 1991-92 record: 13-8. Coach: Lou Clelland.

Top players: Andrea Carter, 6-1, Sr., F; Lori Clelland, 5-9, Sr. F/G; Lynn Abraham, 5-3, Sr., G; Elizabeth Ritter, 5-8, Sr., F; Beth Britton, 5-8, Sr., F.


Outlook: The Eagles return four starters from last season and are led by Carter, who averaged 15.0 points and 17.0 rebounds last year. Clelland also averaged 10.0 rebounds. Defense is also a strong point, led by Abraham, who averaged 4.0 steals. Even though they have less depth on the bench this year, the Eagles have experience; three starters have played together for four years.

Beth Tfiloh Warriors 1991-92 record: 6-11. Coach: John Grap.


Top Players: Tali Rombro, 5-8, Jr., G-F; Kara Brenick, 5-5, Jr., G; Vered Natanzon, 5-9, So., C; Jenn Newfeld, 5-5, Jr., F.

Outlook: This is the final year in Grap's three-year plan to make the Warriors a winner. With essentially the same players, they improved from 0-14 in 1990-91 to 6-11 last season, and expect to improve again in their first year in the AIS B Division. Rombro is the leader and will be one of the keys to an up-tempo attack. The loss of F Nadine Woods, out for the year with a slipped disk, will hurt the offense.

Catonsville Comets 1991-92 record: 20-3. Coach: Dennis Quinby.

Top players: Amy Kuehnl, 5-8, Sr., F; Amanda Deems, 5-6, Sr., G; Carey Shockney, 5-7, Sr. G/F.

Outlook: Last year's Class 3A, Region II champions lost only two starters to graduation and have three four-year starters (Kuehnl, Deems and Shockney) in the lineup who each averaged around 10 points last year. Keuhnl, an All-County selection last year, leads the team in rebounds and is one of the team's top defenders. Quinby believes the Comets have the potential to be one of the top five teams in Baltimore County.

Chesapeake Bayhawks 1991-92 record: 5-13. Coach: Corliss Johnson.

Top players: Amy Lohrig, 5-9, Sr., C; Jessica Jefferson, 5-8, Sr., F; Stephanie Washington, 5-10, So., F; Dara Swiger, 5-6, Jr., F.

Outlook: Six players return from last year's squad but are still a young team. At 5-10, Washington will be expected to grab and follow up rebounds. Lohrig, a strong defender, led the team in blocked shots last year and will be expected to block out the defense on the boards. The biggest challenge to the Bayhawks this season is to fill the scoring void after losing leading scorer Deanna Denn to graduation.


Dulaney Lions 1991-92 record: 19-3. Coach: Elaine Lindsay.

DTop players: Carrie Bell, 5-10, Sr., F; Aimee Vaughan, 5-8, Jr., F.

Outlook: This will likely be a rebuilding year for the Lions, who lost four starters to graduation. Lindsay's immediate goal is to see improvement as the season progresses. The Lions have good outside shooters in both Vaughan and Bell and have an all-round speedy team.

Dundalk Owls 1991-92 record: 2-16. Coach: Gerri Fitzsimmons.

Top players: Katie Marsheck, 5-10, So., F; Holly Collins, 5-9, Jr., C; Chris Vowles, 5-9, Sr., F.

Outlook: The Owls plan to rebuild this year, with youth and potential being their cornerstone. Collins is a good jumper and rebounder, and Vowles is a solid all-round player and outside shooter. Marsheck, the tallest player on the team, is also a force ++ as an outside shooter. First-year coach Fitzsimmons hopes to improve on the team's defense by focusing on zone and man-to-man options.


Eastern Vo-Tech Mavericks 1991-92 record: 0-19. Coach: Gerri Moran.

ATop players: Tina Lotz, 5-7, Sr., G; Angie Gross, 5-5, Jr., G/F.

Outlook: The Mavericks, who have five players returning, are implementing a fast-break offense. Lotz, who averaged 15.4 points last season, will be expected to lead the attack. Gross is a strong rebounder and will help start the fast break.

Franklin Indians 1991-92 record: 11-12. Coach: Jill Myers.

Top players: Jaimie Darr, 5-10, Sr., F; Jennifer Cooper, 5-8, Jr., F; Missy Daley, 5-7, Jr., F.

Outlook: Darr, a three-year starter, averaged 10.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 4.0 blocks last season for the Indians, who lost in the Class 3A, Region II final to Catonsville. Cooper and Daley both played quite a bit last year, and their aggressive style will help the Indians work the ball inside. The Indians also have nine new players; Myers likes their speed and ball-handling skills.


Garrison Forest Grizzlies 1991-92 record: 8-5. Coach: Ed Morse.

Top players: Liza Schoemaker, 5-9, Jr., F/C; Sarah Morse, 5-3, Sr., G; Elanor Brooks, 5-6, So., F; Ashley Ingraham, 6-2, So., C.

Outlook: With a mix of strong young players and experienced veterans, the defending AIS B Division tournament champion should be at least as strong as last year. Schoemaker, Morse and Brooks will be the keys to the offense. Ingraham, a part-time player last season, will take over at center.

Hereford Bulls 1991-92 record: 4-14. Coach: Steve Shaffer.

Top players: Tiffany Stealey, 5-10, Sr., C; Tiffany Shaffer, 5-11, Sr., F; Stacey Yost, 5-9, Sr., F; Kristen Rutledge, 5-8, Jr., G, Melinda Sawyer, 5-5, So., G.

Outlook: The Bulls lost only two starters to graduation and have five seniors returning this season. Rutledge, a strong outside shooter, led the team in scoring last season, averaging 15.0 points. The Bulls will be tall up front, with Stealey, Shaffer and Yost, who are all strong rebounders and shot-blockers.


Kenwood Bluebirds 1991-92 record: 10-11. Coach: Jim Wilmot.

Top players: Kim Wilmont, 5-9, Sr., G; Gloria Curry, 5-9, Sr., F; Danielle Pearson, 5-10, Sr., F.

Outlook: The Bluebirds return four starters from last year's Class Region II semifinal team and lost their top scorer, All-Metro scoring leader Heather Jacob (23.3 ppg) to graduation. Wilmont, Curry and Pearson are all three-year starters who each averaged 8.0 to 10.0 points last season. Curry and Pearson averaged close to seven rebounds per game last season.

@Lansdowne Vikings 1991-92 record: 16-5. Coach: Ron Bareford.

Top players: Casey Smith, 5-9, Sr., C/F; Jami Schlaich, 5-8, Jr., F; Danielle Casio, 5-5, Sr., G.

Outlook: The Vikings reached the Class 3A, Region II semifinals before bowing to C. Milton Wright last season and return all five starters. Smith was the team's leading rebounder last year (8.0 average), and Schlaich was the leading scorer, averaging around 13. The Vikings aren't a tall team, but Bareford says his team's speed and experience will compensate for the lack of size.


Loch Raven Raiders 1991-92 record: 17-5. Coach: Diane George.

Top players: Shelley Klaes, 5-7, Sr., G; Michele DeJuliis, 5-3, Sr., G; Robyn Disney, 5-7, Sr. F.

Outlook: Last year's Class 2A, Region II semifinalists have eight players returning. Even though the Raiders lack height, they are a quick squad with good jumping ability. Klaes averaged 7.4 points, 3.0 assists and 4.0 steals last season. DeJuliis, a strong perimeter shooter, also averaged 7.4 points.

Lutheran Saints 1991-92 record: 1-13. Coach: John Buetow.

Top player: Melissa Kordula, 5-6, Sr., G.

Outlook: First-year coach Buetow has his work cut out. Kordula is the only returning starter off a team that won one game. He'll be stressing fundamentals.


Maryvale Lions 1991-92 record: 6-8. Coach: Teddy Wilson.

Top players: Bridget Greenwalt, 5-6, Jr., G; Emily Berquist, 5-10, Sr., F.

Outlook: First-year coach Wilson expects some shaky times ahead as she installs a fast-break offense in place of the half-court game. It may take several games for the team to adjust. Three starters return, including point guard Greenwalt.

McDonogh Eagles 1991-92 record: 14-4. Coach: Becky Clark.

Top players: Sonia Chase, 5-10, Jr., G-F; Debbie Johnson, 5-6, Sr., G; Sarah Hill, 5-9, Sr., F; Kathleen Whalen, 5-7, Sr., G.

Outlook: This could be the best McDonogh team in several years. Led by Chase (18.0 ppg, 11.2 rpg, 5.0 apg, 6.4 spg), the Eagles are talented, deep and play as a team. Point guard Johnson will lead the up-tempo offense. The Eagles will be shooting for their third straight AIS A Division tournament crown.


Milford Mill Millers 1991-92 record: 17-6. Coach: Pam Wright.

Top players: Yolanda Matthews, 5-9, Sr., F; Ebony Richardson, 6-1, Sr., C; Shanelle Driver, 5-0, Sr., G; Keisha Watkins, 5-10, So., G; Tanahya Boyd, 5-8, Sr., F.

Outlook: At 6-1, Richardson led the team in rebounds last year while Matthews led in scoring. Wright is looking to make the Millers a transition team and has an experienced starting lineup returning. The Millers must avoid injuries this season because there are only nine players on the team.

Mount de Sales Sailors 1991-92 record: 7-12. Coach: William Held.

Top players: Amy Buck, 6-0, So., F; Jane Hammen, 6-0, Sr., C; Terri Miller, 5-3, Sr., G; Chrissy Tirocchi, 5-5, Sr., G.

Outlook: The Sailors are starting over after losing their top two scorers and rebounders to graduation. Held expects Tirocchi to be the team's leading scorer. Three sophomores -- Buck, Anna Martinez and Katie Santry are expected to start. Mount de Sales has two 6-footers but lacks the overall skills necessary to compete with the top teams in the Catholic League.


Notre Dame Prep Pirates 1991-92 record: 9-8. Coach: Claire Reisler.

Top players: Heather Castle, 5-7, Jr., G; Carrie Natalie, 5-8, Jr., F; Julia Trintis, 5-8, Sr., F.

Outlook: The Pirates are very young -- with four freshmen and five sophomores -- and Castle is the only returning starter. But the young players have talent and could surprise. The more they play together, the better they'll get.


1991-92 record: 11-6. Coach: Sven Jensen.

Top players: Robin Scully, 5-10, Sr., F; Sharon Lincoln, 5-3, Sr., G, Erin Saussy, 5-10, Sr., F; Paige Scully, 5-10, So., G.


Outlook: What Oldfields lacks in height, it makes up for in perimeter talent. Robin Scully, a two-time league all-star who averaged 16.0 points last year, will lead the offense, and will be complemented by Lincoln, who at 5-3 was the second-best rebounder on the team. Saussy, last year hobbled by the lingering effects of a knee injury, and Paige Scully could be big contributors.

Overlea Falcons 1991-92 record: 5-13. Coach: Colette Nichols.

Top players: Carla Nichols, 5-6, Sr., F; Amie Palm, 5-4, So., G; Lisa Hollick, 5-5, Jr. G; Heather Grevera, 5-10, Sr., C.

Outlook: The Falcons lost three starters and most of their offense to graduation, but will look to Hollick and Nichols to fill the scoring void. Nichols, who played as a No. 2 guard last season will move to the point and Hollick, who missed most of last season with an ankle injury, will move to shooting guard. Nichols and Grevera will be expected once again to pull down the rebounds -- each averaged close to nine last season.

Owings Mills Eagles 1991-92 record: 12-9. Coach: Maureen Breslin.

ETop players: Allison Klein, 5-6, Sr., G; Sheree Tilley, 5-8, Jr., F.


Outlook: The Eagles are a young team with six sophomores and five juniors. In Monday's scrimmage against Randallstown, Klein scored 10 points and sophomore F Kristi Sachs pulled down six rebounds. First-year coach Breslin was pleased with the team's man-to-man defense and full-court press and hopes the Eagles can equal last year's record and reach the Class 1A, Region II semifinals.

Park Bruins 1991-92 record: 14-4. Coach: Robin Willard.

Top players: Alexa Wilder, 5-6, So., G; Monica Brinkley, 5-11, Sr., C; Becky Rosenberg, 5-8, Sr., F; Jayme Gilden, 5-8, Sr., G.

Outlook: The Bruins return four starters from last year's AIS B Division runners-up, including Gilden and Wilder, their top two scorers. With the addition of five solid players from the JV, the team has depth. It will fast-break whenever possible and play pressure defense.

@Parkville Knights 1991-92 record: 6-13. Coach: Nancy Gross.

Top players: Sallie Neal, 5-7, Sr., G; Kim Kelley, 5-8, Sr., F; Kelly Lemley, 5-6, Sr., G; Shelly Hughes, 5-8, Sr., F; Kerry Rogers, 5-8, Sr., F.


Outlook: Parkville returns with a seven-senior squad. Neal, a good outside shooter, led the Knights in scoring last year, averaging close to 12 points. Kelley, who was hampered by knee and wrist injuries last season, is healthy and will be expected to

pull down rebounds and follow up shots inside.

Patapsco Patriots 1991-92 record: 10-8. Coach: Nancy Woodside.

Top players: Michelle Thomas, 5-10, Sr., C; Melanie Moskowitz, 5-10, Jr., F; Heather Amend, 5-7, Sr. F.

Outlook: With three starters returning along the front line, the Patriots will look to dump the ball inside. Thomas, the team's leading rebounder and second-leading scorer a year ago, will be the key to the offense, with Moskowitz and Amend also expected to contribute. Woodside expects improvement from her team, which lost in the first round of the regionals last year.

@Perry Hall Gators 1991-92 record: 2-16. Coach: Norm Samuels.


Top players: Tracey Morgan, 5-10, Sr., G/F; Lori Johnson, 5-10, Sr., F/C; Jess Lockwood, 5-9, Sr., F.

Outlook: Things can only get better after a 2-16 year. Samuels will take advantage of his team's speed by running whenever possible and playing man-to-man pressure defense.

Pikesville Panthers 1991-92 record: 6-12. Coach: Ken Lane.

Top players: Lenise Rosen, 5-9, Sr. F; Cobly Feldman, 5-10, Jr., F; Kristen Brooks, 5-8, So., G.; Jamie Robbins, 5-4, Jr., G.

Outlook: Five starters return for the Panthers, who last season advanced to the regional playoffs for the first time in several years. Lane, in his first year coaching the varsity, has installed an up-tempo offense and a more aggressive man-to-man defense. Feldman and Rosen, returning as starters, and Brooks, up from the JV, will be key contributors.

@Randallstown Rams 1991-92 record: 12-9. Coach: Kris Slaughter.


Top players: Nyota Mitchell, 5-11, Jr., F; Kim Arthur, 5-8, Sr., F; Kim Brown, 5-5, Jr., G; Evette Jones, 5-5, Sr., G.

Outlook: Mitchell (15 points in Monday's scrimmage against Owings Mills) and Arthur (10 in the scrimmage) will be expected to lead the offense. First-year coach Slaughter said the Rams will have a tough defense, fueled by the efforts of Ilyse Crammer and Mitchell.

St. Paul's School for Girls Gators 1991-92 record: 10-3. Coach: Suzie Friedrich.

Top players: Kelly Levin, 5-5, Sr., G; Julie Bowyer, 6-1, Jr., F; Jen

Collins, 6-1, So., C; Page Watts, 5-8, So., G.

Outlook: With the front line featuring two 6-1 players in Bowyer and Collins, the Gators will try to pound the ball inside in a half-court offense. With six returnees, including three starters, the team could equal its success of a season ago. The key could be defense.


St. Timothy's Spiders 1991-92 record: 7-8. Coach: John Bonn.

Top players: Kate Rowland, 5-6, Jr., G; Muminah Hall, 5-8, Sr., F; Gillian Schreiber, 5-9, Jr., F.

Outlook: After graduating four starters, St. Timothy's is an unknown commodity. Hall is the lone returner, and will be complemented by Rowland and Schreiber, the team's sixth and seventh players last season. The team is inexperienced and may struggle to reach last year's record.

Sparrows Point Pointers 1991-92 record: 5-15. Coach: Sam Scott.

Top players: Carrie Falkenham, 5-0, Sr., G; Iris Lewis, 5-9, Sr., C; Aline Wetzel, 5-1, Jr., G; Lisa Schultz, 5-5, Fr., F.

Outlook: The Pointers, beset by injuries last season, should be much deeper. Falkenham will run the offense, with Lewis the go-to girl under the basket. If they rebound well, they'll try to run with the ball.


Towson Generals 1991-92 record: 18-1. Coach: Bev Snyder.

Top players: Katie Barnes, 5-10, So., G; Jesse Owens, 5-3, Jr., G; Abby Burk, 5-10, Sr., F; Sarah Weaver, 5-8, Jr., G-F.

Outlook: The Generals return the nucleus of last year's team that went undefeated before losing to Hammond in the regional semifinal. Barnes will take over at point guard, leading one of Snyder's tallest teams. The Generals are young, with just one senior starter, but also deep. The test will come in their first two games against county powers Milford Mill and Loch Raven.

Towson Catholic Owls 1991-92 record: 2-12. Coach: Lyle Weiss.

Top players: Amy Cullum, 5-8, Jr., F; Rebecca Becker, 5-3, Jr., G; Patricia Ayd, 5-6, Sr., G-F.

Outlook: With four starters returning, the Owls will count on experience to help them improve on last year's sixth-place finish in the AIS B Division. Their goal is to be competetive and post a few wins.


Woodlawn Warriors 1991-92 record: 18-6. Coach: Mary Duckworth.

Top players: Chris Clausen, 5-8, Sr., G; Ebony Davis, 5-9, Sr. F; Carlene Walker, 5-10, Sr., C; Nicola Miller, 5-8, Sr., F.

Outlook: The Class 4A, Region II semifinalists enter the season with six seniors, but lost their leading scorer and rebounder to graduation last year. Duckworth is looking to sophomore point guard Anika Lee to run the offense. Lee and Clausen will help with scoring -- both are effective from the perimter. Junior Avareena Schools (5-10) will share the center position with Walker.
