Outlook: With a boatload of returning talent, the Panthers, who finished one game out of first-place in the 2010 Susquehanna (lower) Division race, will be at the head of the pack this year, but may run into a problem named Rising Sun, as the powerhouse team from northern Cecil County is playing in the lower division after being relegated from the Chesapeake.
"We are looking forward to an exciting, competitive season," coach Selecky said. "The team has a strong core of girls that have played together for a while. They communicate well, and are in sync with one another on the field. We would like to put a lot of goals in the cage, and keep that ball out of our defensive end."
