After finishing with 23 wins and making an appearance in the Maryland 3A state semifinal, Damascus returns one of the most experienced rosters in the area. The Swarmin’ Hornets have four of five starters back, including dynamic forward Kelli Prange (15.9 points per game), as well as senior guards Jenna Kaufman (10 ppg) and Lauren Green (9.5 ppg). . . . Poolesville is expected to contend again after 19 wins last winter, bringing back leading scorer Whitney Carmack (9.2 ppg) and versatile senior guard Rosie Barry (8.2 ppg). . . . Seneca Valley, which had four juniors and a sophomore lead the team in scoring last season, is expected to be one of the deepest teams in the county. . . . After a year of rebuilding, Einstein is prepared to take the next step under second-year Coach Julian Barron. The Titans will be led by senior Abbey Buckingham and sophomore guard Dalina Julien, who provided over half the team’s scoring production last season.
