Skinny

Episcopal graduated three of its top five scorers, but will have one of the premier players in the ISL A in Rennie Harrison, who had a standout junior season. The 6-3 forward averaged 13.7 points per game, grabbed 8.5 rebounds per game, and shot 68.7 percent from the free throw line. . . . Holy Child graduated just one of its top seven scorers from last season and should be led by senior guards Talley Britt and Lilly Paro. The 5-3 guard averaged 9.3 points and four rebounds last winter. . . . After struggling in the AA league last season, Flint Hill returns a bevy of experience including three senior starters and eight juniors. That includes two of the top three scorers from last year in Katherine Doyle and Victoria Robinson, who will play at Division II Queens (N.C.) next year. . . . St. Andrew’s should be improved after winning just six games last season. Junior Hannah King is back after averaging 6.7 points as a sophomore, and the team should receive a boost from freshman guard Samantha Winter.
