Coach: Eddie Roberts, first season.

Last season's record: 14-13 (7-7 in Maryland Independent Schools Athletic League).

Conference: Beltway League and Maryland Independent School Athletic League.

Returning starters: G June Chan, 5-7, Jr.; G Jore Hayes, 5-8, Soph.; F Shaneka Holliday, 5-8, Jr.; G Rachel Radtke, 5-6, Jr.; F Leeann Reece, 5-11, Sr.

Outlook: Roberts, a former assistant with the boys' varsity team, took over the girls' team midway through last season and guided it into the MISAL semifinals.

The Mustangs bring back five starters and have added a high-paced, motion-heavy fast-break offense. The team will play in both the MISAL and the Beltway League this year, and will likely play exclusively in the Beltway League next season.

Inside players will start most possessions facing the basket, and the team will look to get quick shots and rush back to the defensive end. Leading scorers Hayes (14 ppg) and Reece (11 ppg) will again provide points, and Holliday has added a perimeter game. Chan has improved her ballhandling skills, which will help the fast break.

Coach's comment: "Defense was our strength last year; we're looking to get a fast shot and get back and play our strength. All the girls have really improved their ballhandling skills, which we needed. We just have to improve our shooting skills. We have good athletes -- I wouldn't be surprised if we challenge for the [MISAL] championship this year."
