Top Girls Players
Caitlin Burr, Centennial, Sr.: Center should be one of the league's top post players after averaging 4.5 points per game and shooting 72 percent from the free throw line last year. She will be particularly important because last year's leading scorer, Brittany Kelley (15.3 ppg), suffered a season-ending knee injury this fall.
Tiffany Der, Wilde Lake, Jr.: Guard averaged 14 points, 4.4 steals, 4.1 rebounds and 4 assists to lead her team to a record of 13-11.
Deanna Dydynski, Mount Hebron, Soph.: Guard led the team in scoring with 7.4 points per game, made 15 three-pointers and shot 69.4 percent from the free throw line.
Keisha Eaddy, River Hill, Sr.: Temple-bound guard averaged 22 points, 6 rebounds, 9.1 steals and 4.1 assists to lead her team to its first 25-victory season and first 3A state tournament appearance.
Jannelee Klippsteen, Long Reach, Sr.: Forward averaged 9.1 points and 11.5 rebounds to lead her team to a fifth-place finish in the county standings.

Ashley Myrick, Wilde Lake, Sr.: Forward averaged a team-high 17.7 points and 9.9 rebounds to go along with 4.4 steals and 4 assists. She will return later this month from a knee injury sustained this past summer.
