A year after finishing 29-6, Riverdale Baptist should once again be one of the area’s most talented teams, boasting three ACC signees in Chloe Jackson (N.C. State), Chania Ray (Florida State), and Khalia Prather (Miami). . . . Annapolis Area Christian (12-9) should be improved after a 12-win campaign last winter and returns star junior guard Taylor Murray. . . . Pallotti (12-14) is now under the direction of former Bullis Coach Rod Hairston, who has key returners in 6-2 senior forward Beverly Ogunrinde (11.1 points per game, 4.1 rebounds per game) and senior guard Kaiya Coleman (6.4 ppg). . . . Middleburg returns four of its top five scorers from last season, including guard Courtney Radcliffe. Grace Brethren returns all five starters from last year’s 17-5 team, including a strong trio of guards. The team is led by senior guard Brandi McLean, a former Gwynn Park transfer who averaged 8.8 points and 13.3 rebounds per game last season.
