Tiana-Jo Carter, Lake Region, junior center: The athletic 6-foot-2 Carter´s length, jumping ability and anticipation made her an immediate defensive force.

Allie Clement, McAuley, junior point guard: One of the top prospects in the state, Clement is being recruited by several Division I schools. She averaged 12.8 points, 2.6 assists and 3.2 steals for the two-time defending champs. A returning All-State selection.
Allison Furness, Wells, junior forward: Plays with ferocity, is athletic enough to compete against taller players under the basket and runs the court well; averaged 12.3 points and 7 rebounds in Western Maine Conference all-star sophomore season.
Jordan Knowlton, Camden Hills, senior forward: A returning All-State selection, Knowlton has already gone over 1,000 points in her career. She averaged 22.8 points, 14.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists last year to help the Windjammers to the quarterfinals.
