Montana Braxton, Cape Elizabeth senior guard/forward: One of the most athletic and versatile players in the area, she averaged 14.2 points and 3.9 steals last year. She can break a press with her ball handling and is an accurate passer.

Emily Esposito, Gorham junior guard: Already a two-time All-State selection, Esposito is one of the most dynamic players in the state, attracting much Division I interest. She can score inside or outside and has great court vision. She averaged 17.5 points, 8.4 rebounds, 3.7 steals and 2.8 assists last year.

Sadie Nelson, Windham senior guard: Possibly one of the more under-rated stars in the area, she was third in the SMAA in scoring (17 points) and rebounding (8.5) last year. She can hit the 3-pointer or slash to the basket, making her a very difficult player to cover.

Shannon Todd, York senior guard: The Northeastern University-bound Todd has been one of the best players in the area for three years. At 5-foot-11, she is comfortable inside or out and possesses great court sense. Last year, she averaged 14.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 3.2 steals.

Moira Train, Greely junior guard/forward: At 5-foot-9, Train presents match-up problems for many defenders. She can hit the outside shot and also drive inside. She’s a great defender and may play the point. Last year she averaged 8.3 points.

Brie Wajer, Lincoln Academy junior point guard: A fearless competitor, she is an adept ball handler, passer and shooter. She plays tenacious defense, too. The 5-foot-6 Wajer averaged 12.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 5.3 steals last year.

Jess Willerson, McAuley senior center: The 6-foot-2 Willerson will play at Cornell University. She averaged 14 points and 8 rebounds last year and, according to Coach Bill Goodman, has come back stronger and faster. She’s very tough to move inside.
