1. Scarborough: Depth, typically, is not an issue for the Red Storm, winners of the last six Class A indoor track championships. The Red Storm’s strength comes through team versatility and it’s not uncommon to see athletes in multiple events, rather than in specialized events.

2. Bonny Eagle: The Scots return the bulk of their scorers from last year, namely a group of talented sprinters that includes Morgan Costa and Amber Dostie. Costa and Dostie combined for 18 of Bonny Eagle’s 62 team points as the Scots finished second in Class A.

3. York: Like Scarborough, York is a team that has numbers, year in and year out. Paced by distance runners Michaela Swiatek and Shelly Potter, the Wildcats will defend the 2010 Class B title — the first indoor title for the girls’ program, which edged out Waterville by a point for the championship.

4. Thornton Academy: The Trojans are one of Class A’s perennial contenders and while they haven’t won an indoor title since 2004, the Trojans are boosted by a corps of shot putters, including Abby Huntress and Emily Morin, who placed third and fifth at last year’s state championships.

5. Mt. Ararat: Traditionally known for strength in cross country, the Eagles finished fifth at the Class A indoor championship with 40 points but had a handful of standouts who placed, many of whom were underclassmen.
