1. John Carroll

Last season: 14-5-1, ranked No. 5

Graduation took a bite out of the defending IAAM A Conference champs, but there's still plenty of talent.

Talented all over with impact players at ideal positions, the Eagles appear primed to unseat River Hill in Howard County.

The Eagles can easily make it their year in the IAAM A Conference with better luck in overtime, where they went 0-5-2 last fall.

The young Hawks will quickly look to build an identity to maintain tradition as the Howard County champs.

The Mavericks, who won their first Baltimore County crown and made it three straight 2A state semifinal appearances last season, want more in 2004.

With an impressive midfield and dangerous front line, the Gladiators could easily have the last laugh in Howard County.

The Seahawks didn't quite meet their usual lofty standards last season, leaving them hungry this fall.

10. Century
