1. York

Fourteen players return from last year’s squad that won the Western Class B title for the fifth time in six years. All-state midfielder Hannah Keating is joined by backs Chelsea Morley and Shelly Potter and forwards Cari Posternak and Catie Keenan.

2. Scarborough

The defending Class A state champion lost 14 players from an undefeated team but has several capable replacements. The Felt sisters, senior Kate (who’s off to Bucknell next year) and sophomore Stephanie, are joined by juniors Kelsey Howard and Shauni Cowan..

3. Gorham

The Rams graduated some tremendous talent, but they have a slew of other players back, including Alyssa Clark, Elena Barnes, Kelly Devoe and Chelsea Black.

4. Cheverus

Another team that lost a lot from last year but returns some talented individuals. The Stags have two dangerous scorers back in Emily Sawchuck and Sarah LaQuerre, who combined for 19 goals last year.

5. Wells

The Warriors were the surprise of the Western Class B playoffs last year, advancing to the final, and they have 11 seniors back from that squad. Jill Sledzieski, Kaylar Masellas, Meghan Gilpatrick, Sabrina Link and Sarah Larmie head the list.

6. Sanford

Yeah, the Redskins graduated seven starters. But their program is so strong that replacement parts are readily available. This team will be fast, led by twins Salinda and Savina Dong. Lindsay Nolette and Jordan Brasier are also returning in key positions.

7. Camden Hills

The Windjammers just missed the playoffs last year. This year they should be right in the hunt. Seniors Maci Heal, Katherine Johanson and Sarah Nason are extremely talented leaders on a deep team.

8. Bonny Eagle

Peyton Dostie, a senior, gives the Scots something other teams might lack – an offensive threat any time she touches the ball. Nicole DeMidio is another offensive threat, and freshman Cassidy Merrill has a lot of potential.

9. Sacopee Valley

Is this the year the Hawks topple NYA from the top spot in Western Class C? Maybe. Sacopee Valley has a group of returning players who are versatile and talented. Justine Ruhlin, Dani Pierce and Chelsey Burnell provide the leadership.

10. Greely

The Rangers will field their usually competitive team. In CeCi Hodgkins, they have one of the most dangerous scorers in the WMC. She’ll be joined up from by newcomer Jess Wilson, a sophomore who has impressed everyone.
