Bri Jordan, Gray-New Gloucester senior guard: A four-year starter, Jordan has been one of the top players in the Patriots’ run of success, which includes two Class B South titles and a state championship.

Grace Martin, Biddeford senior guard: The 6-foot-1 Martin led the SMAA in scoring with 23.7 points per game while pulling down 11.2 rebounds. She has a nice mid-range jumper to go along with a hard-to-stop drive. She will attend Harvard.

McKenzy Ouellette, Massabesic senior guard: Capable of playing the point or on the wing, Ouellette is one of the most dangerous players in the SMAA. She averaged 18.3 points, 2.7 assists and 2.6 steals last season. She will play at St. Anselm.
