Top players: Kate Bisset, 5-7, Jr., F; Trina Anderson, Jr., F; Vicki Matthews, Soph., G; Yolanda Little, 8th, G.
Outlook: The major problem is experience with junior Kate Bisset the lone returning starter.

Top players: Tali Rombro, 5-8, Sr., F; Laura Brenick, 5-6, Sr., G; Rachel Dahan, 5-3, Soph., G; Nadine Woods, 5-6, Sr., F; Jenn Newfeld, 5-6, Sr., C.
Outlook: Losing three starters at the beginning of the season devastated Beth Tfiloh last year, but Grap said this year should be better.

Top players: Shannon Rexrode, 5-11, Soph. F; Cachet Hall, 5-8, Soph., F; Meghann Mohler, 5-2, Soph., PG; Krista Bayne, 5-3, Soph., G; Elissa Rellihan, 5-9, Sr., F-C; Kelly Fetter, 5-6, Soph. F-G.
Outlook: The Comets are very young, but also very talented. Last year, the team made it to the regional semifinals before losing.
Chesapeake Bayhawks 1992-93 record: 3-17. Coach: Michael Cain.
Top players: Tanya Kelley, 5-8, Jr., F; Chesna Sellway, 5-4, Jr., G; Sloane Rodgers, 5-5, Sr., G; Stephanie Washington, 5-11, Jr., C.
Outlook: The Bayhawks return only three players who saw significant playing time last season, and aren't very deep.
Dulaney Lions 1992-93 record: 12-7. Coach: Melba Williams.
Top players: Beth Allen, 5-5, Sr., PG; Aimee Vaughan, 5-9, Sr., F; Whitney McClelland, 5-8, Sr., G; Lisa Rutledge, 5-8, Jr., G; Kara Lipski, 5-9, Sr., F.
Outlook: Williams, the 16-year coach of the Dulaney JV, takes over for longtime varsity coach Elaine Lindsay, but should have similar success. The Lions return eight from last season.

Eastern Technical Mavericks 1992-93 record: 0-20. Coach: Dave Scrivener.
Top players: Kim Smith, 5-10, Sr., G; Dalanna Nelson, 5-6, Sr., G; Carrie Marsh, 5-5, Sr., F; Dayna Wagner, 5-7, Jr., F; Valerie Pherdeort, 5-6, Jr., G.

Franklin Indians 1992-93 record: 10-10. Coach: Jill Myers.
Top players: Jill Smith, 6-0, Jr., C; Sharee Lewis, 5-5, Jr., G; Jennifer Cooper, 5-9, Sr., F; Missy Daley, 5-8, Sr., F; Staci Lotterer, 5-4, Jr., PG.
Outlook: The Indians will be improved and should make it back to the regionals, where last year they lost in the first round. They lost just one senior and return a talented bunch.
Garrison Forest Grizzlies 1992-93 record: 13-2. Coach: Ed Morse.
Top players: Ashley Ingraham, Jr., C, 6-1; Liza Shoemaker, Sr., F, 5-10; Maggie Shoemaker, Soph., F, 5-10; Lauren Kline, Soph., G, 5-7; Eleanor Brooks, Jr., F, 5-6.

Top players: Kristen Rutledge, 5-8, Sr., G; Jenna Matthews, 5-11, Sr., F; Melinda Sawyer, 5-3, Jr., PG; Audra Trouland, 5-3, Jr., G; Colleen Rochstroh, 5-11, Jr., F.
Outlook: The Bulls feature seven players promoted from last year's 15-5 JV, giving Spicer some hope for the future. But the driving force on this team will be Rutledge, an accurate shooting guard.
@Kenwood Bluebirds 1992-93 record: 5-11. Coach: Lori Brewer.
ETop players: Melissa Wosk, 5-3, Jr., G; Danielle Reid, 5-5, Jr., PG.
Outlook: Reid and Wosk are the only returning players on a young and inexperienced team. Brewer said she will start by teaching the basics.
@Lansdowne Vikings 1992-93 record: 19-6. Coach: Ron Bareford.
Top players: Jamie Schlaich, 5-8, Sr., F; Shannon McGarrigle, 5-6, Sr., G-F; Angie Pasta, 5-4, Sr., PG; Danyel Emgen, 5-5, Sr., G; Jennifer Eichorn, 5-7, Sr., F.
Outlook: The Vikings lost the point guard and tallest player from last year's team that advanced to the Class 3A state semifinals. But with seven returners they should still be well above average.
Loch Raven Raiders 1992-93 record: 21-2. Coach: Ken Witts.
Top players: Robyn Harry, 5-6, Jr., PG; Kelley Powell, 6-0, Jr., C; Tiffani Tucker, 5-4, Sr., F; Lauren Volk, 5-11, Sr., F; Maura Lyng,
5-7, Jr., G.
Outlook: The Raiders lost three starters, but feature a talented group including 12 players from fall county championship teams. Harry and
Powell, will lead a team that Witts (formerly at Milford Mill for 11 seasons) calls "the most talented I've had from top to bottom."
Lutheran Saints 1992-93 record: 5-13. Coach: John Buetow.
Top players: Candy Berry, 5-4, Sr., G; Abbey Hamman, 5-4, Sr., G.
Outlook: Hamman will be pressed to ignite the offense for the defensive-minded Saints. Berry averaged eight points last season.
Maryvale Lions 1992-93 record: 5-6. Coach: Teddi Willis.
Top players: Bridget Greenawalt, 5-6, Sr., G; Meg McLaughlin, 5-11, Jr., C.
Outlook: The goal will be to finish above .500. McLaughlin has added more finesse to her inside game.
McDonogh Eagles 1992-93 record: 13-7. Coach: Seth Kushkin.
Top players: Sonia Chase, 5-10, Sr., F; Lindsay Mortimer, 5-6, Sr., F; Sarah Manekin, 5-7, Sr., C.
Outlook: Chase, who averaged 19.4 points and nine rebounds, returns as one of the area's top players. Rather than last year's wide-open offense, Kushkin employs a new control-style offense.
Milford Mill Millers 1992-93 record: 20-3. Coach: Pam Wright.
Top players: Kisha Watkins, 5-9, Jr., F-G; Erica Smith, 5-4, Sr., G-F; Tiffany Riley, 5-5, Jr., G; Tenia Stuckey, 5-4, Jr., G; Crystal Dent, 6-0, Fresh., C.
Outlook: Coming off last season's trip to the Class 1A state semifinals, the Millers are rebuilding. The team will be young but quick.
Mount Carmel Lions 1992-93 record: 14-5. Coach: Robert Bonner.
CTop players: Erin Reed, 5-4, Jr., G; Larissa Paulino, 5-5, Jr., G.
Outlook: The Lions rely on pressure defense, perimeter shooting and quickness this season with no player taller than 5-10. The junior backcourt of Reed and Paulino will produce most of the points.
Mount de Sales Sailors 1992-93 record: 11-14. Coach: Bill Held.
Top players: Amy Buck, 6-0, Jr., C; Katy Santry, 5-4, Jr. G.
Outlook: The Sailors look to move into the middle of the pack this season after a 1-13 record last year in the Catholic League.
Notre Dame Prep Pirates 1992-93 record: 9-9. Coach: Claire Reisler.
Top players: Heather Castle, 5-7, Sr., G; Maggie Kilroy, 5-5, Soph., G; Carrie Natale, 5-8, Sr., F.
Outlook: The Pirates return eight players from a team filled with underclassmen. The strength will be the backcourt.
1992-93 record: 13-4. Coach: Sven Jensen.
Top players: Page Scully, 5-10, Jr., G/F; Ann-Marie Gardner, 5-4, Soph., G; Ann Chapman, 5-6, Soph., F.
Outlook: Moving up to the AIS A Division and losing four starters, Oldfields could struggle this year. In two years in the B Division, Oldfields had a 24-7 record. Scully has to adjust from a role player to a shooter.
Overlea Falcons 1992-93 record: 2-14. Coach: Will Phillips Top players: Carrie Parker, 5-11, Jr., F; Joy Davis, 5-2, So., PG.
Outlook: Phillips took over the program late last week after Kevin Parson resigned. The team won just two games last season, and has its work cut out for it in the tough Baltimore County 1A-2A League.
Owings Mills Golden Eagles 1992-93 record: 7-12. Coach: Brian Yaniger.
Top players: Kristi Sachs, 5-7, Jr., C; Sheree Tilley, 5-5, Sr., F; Stefanie Meyerson, 5-5, Sr., G-F; Mimi Culver, 5-6, Fresh., F; Allie Coufal, 5-4, Jr., PG.
Outlook: Pressure -- that's the objective for a small but quick and very athletic Eagles lineup that will need to create turnovers to score.
Park Bruins 1992-93 record: 17-2. Coach: Robin Willard.
Top players: Jessica Schiazione, 5-7, Jr., F; Alexa Wilder, 5-6, Jr., G.
Outlook: Explosive scorer Schiazione (15.0 ppg last season) tops the list of three returning starters. The Bruins won the AIS B Conference regular-season title last season but move to the A this year.
@Parkville Knights 1992-93 record: 10-10. Coach: Nancy Gross.
Top players: Debbie Curran, 5-5, Soph., G; LaTanya Jones, 5-10, Soph., F; Jenn Lenahan, 5-3, Sr., G; Doni Huppert, 5-4, Jr., PG.
Outlook: The Knights lost all five starters from a team that bowed out in the first round of regionals. The team, which includes six sophomores, has been sporatic in preseason practice and shown potential.
@Patapsco Patriots 1992-93 record: 13-8. Coach: Nancy Woodside.
Top players: Melanie Moskowitz, 5-10, Sr., F-C; Sam Porter, 5-5, Jr., G-F; Shanan Schaeffer, 5-9, Jr., C; Bobbie Zalewski, 5-6, Sr., PG.
Outlook: The strength returns from last year's team, which lost to powerful Mount Hebron in the first round of the regional playoffs. Moskowitz, a powerful forward, and Porter, a quick guard, will lead the way.
@Perry Hall Gators 1992-93 record: 4-16. Coach: Norm Samuels.
Top players: Kelly Proffitt, 5-8, Sr., F; Jessica Loehrs, 5-6, Jr., G; Krisann Pfeifer, 5-3, Jr., G; Stephanie Koman, 5-6, So., PG.
Outlook: The Gators hope to create turnovers with pressure defense and turn them into fast break baskets. But that will be no small chore for the Gators.
Pikesville Panthers 1992-93 record: 9-10. Coach: Ken Lane.
Top players: Jamie Robbins, 5-4, Sr., G; Kristen Brooks, 5-8, Jr., F; Gail Albarabo, 5-9, Jr., C; Beth Cohen, 5-7, Jr., G; Julie Stein, 5-5, Fresh., G; Akilah Crowner, 5-4, Fresh., G.
Outlook: The Panthers inched toward the .500 mark last year, and could very well surpass it this time around. Second-year coach Lane has a quicker and more athletic team than last year.
@Randallstown Rams 1992 record: 22-1. Coach: Dave Wright.
Top players: Nyota Mitchell, 6-0, Sr., F; Kim Brown, 5-4, Sr., PG; Shavon Henley, 6-0, Fresh., F; Katrina Johns, 6-1, Fresh., F; Tina Washington, 5-11, Jr., F; Latonya Chambers, 5-11, Soph., F.
Outlook: The Rams are big and talented. Mitchell, who averaged over 26.0 ppg, leads the way. Unlike last year, this won't be a one-player team. With seven players over 5-10, including three 6
feet or taller, the Rams have several options.
St. Paul's School Gators
1992-93 record: 9-7. Coach: Suzanne Friedrich.
Top players: Page Watts, 5-8, Jr., G; Tice Burke, 5-2, Jr., G; Jen Collins, 6-2, Jr., C; Julie Boyer, 6-2, Sr., F.
Outlook: The Crusaders return all five starters, including the formidable duo of Collins and Boyer. All-AIS guard Watts should balance the offense with her outside scoring.
St. Timothy's Spiders 1992-93 record: 4-10. Coach: John Bonn.
Top players: Gillian Schreiber, 5-9, Sr., F; Kate Rowland, 5-6, Sr., G.
Outlook: The Spiders have a lot to prove with a balanced mixture of experience and youth. Schreiber (12.0 ppg last year) is the main scoring threat.
Sparrows Point Pointers 1992-93 record: 4-14. Coach: Sam Scott.
Top players: Dana Weber, 5-11, Sr., C; Alaine Wetzel, 5-2, Sr., G; Jennifer Judd, 5-4, Jr., G; Kim Laurie, 5-4, Sr., G.
Outlook: After relying too much on one player last year the Pointers are looking for balance.
Towson Generals 1992-93 record: 16-4. Coach: Bev Snyder.
Top players: Sarah Weaver, 5-8, Sr., PG; Kary Koch, 5-11, Jr., F; Katie Walker, 6-1, Jr., F-C; Katie Barnes, 5-10, Jr., C-F; Jessica
Owens, 5-3, Sr., G; Nicki Raymer, 5-7, Jr., G.
Outlook: After losing in the regional finals to powerhouse Hammond, Towson returns most of a potent lineup, including Weaver (14.7 ppg, 7.4 rpg) and Koch (9.1 ppg, 8.0 rpg).
Towson Catholic Owls 1992-93 record: 7-11. Coach: Lyle Weiss.
BTop players: Amy Cullum, 5-8, Sr., G; Rebecca Becker, 5-3, Sr. G.
Outlook: The Owls have four seniors and the rest underclassmen. The Owls' goal is to break .500.
Woodlawn Warriors 1992-93 record: 18-6. Coach: Mary Duckworth.
Top players: Anika Lee, 5-2, Jr., PG; Avareena Schools, 5-9, Sr., C-F; Shanesa DeBruin, 5-7, Sr., G; Sheraie Darby, 5-9, Jr., F; Cassandra Massie, 5- 11, Soph., C-F.
Outlook: This is a rebuilding year for the Warriors, who lost four starters to graduation. Leading the way will be Lee, an excellent ballhandler and the team's leading scorer, and Schools.
