Omara Parker, Annapolis, Sr. F: Parker is an all-around player who averaged 13 points, 6.6 rebounds and four assists last season.
Ali Moreland, South River, Jr. G: She played a role in last season's success and will step into the spotlight with Stacy Hunt (19 ppg) and Rachel Fry (15.1 ppg) now gone.
Brittany Wiseman, Southern, Jr. G: A quick, 5-2 point guard who has improved her turnover-assist ratio, she will lead a team that brings back all five starters.
Jasmine Mitchell, Glen Burnie, Soph. F: After playing varsity as a freshman, Mitchell was one of the most promising players on the girls' summer league team and should do well again this season.
Kristie Watkins, Old Mill, Sr. F: A four-year starter, Watkins could be one of the top three players in the county this season. She looks to improve on last year's numbers: 12.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
Kiara Thomas, Old Mill, Jr. F: Thomas has shined in the paint for the Patriots before, averaging 12.2 points and 7.8 rebounds per game last season, and is expected to be even better this season.
Amanda Spinnenweber, Chesapeake, Sr. F: A three-sport star, Spinnenweber has talents extending off the court, but as the only senior on the team, will have to focus for the Cougars to succeed.
Sarah Ziegler, Southern, Sr. F: Ziegler's strong body is expected to provide some of the toughest post play in the county.
