Reservoir, forward, senior
The senior is coming off an outstanding season in which she averaged a double double of 16.1 points and 11.3 rebounds. Dorn was picked as the team’s player of the year last season, and if she keeps getting better, the Gators will certainly benefit.
Faulcon has developed into one of the area’s top players in the paint. She did damage by scoring (14.3 points), rebounding (12.5) and playing tough defense (2.8 blocks) last season as Old Mill had a strong year, and the Patriots are going to need her help again.
Oakland Mills, guard, senior
Greenway helped Oakland Mills win a Class 2A South Region title with her strong play last season. She averaged 15.6 points and 3.3 rebounds, and the guard is going to be playing at Coppin State starting next year.
Henson helped the Reds reach the IAAM A Conference semifinals by averaging 11.6 points and two steals per game. The point guard started this season well also with 16 points in Roland Park’s recent opener.
Roland Park, forward, junior
McLean averaged 18.5 points and 13 rebounds per game last season and finished with 19 double doubles. She started this year on a roll with 17 points and 17 rebounds in Roland Park’s opener, and the junior will be tough to stop on the boards.
She can play all five positions on the floor and helped the Panthers to a fourth consecutive IAAM A Conference title. Last season, Reese averaged 17.5 points and 14.5 rebounds per game, and coach Jerome Shelton wants to see her talents keep growing — something conference opponents won’t like.
The point guard should give IND a hand as it jumps from the IAAM B Conference to the A Conference. The 5-foot-11 point guard averaged 23 points and seven assists last year and already is drawing plenty of college interest.
Long Reach, guard, senior
Swann’s offensive talents will give Long Reach another chance to return to the state final four. She averaged 19.3 points per game last year as the Lightning made it to the Class 3A state title game and has committed to UMBC.
