Adama Aja

Seton Keough, hitter, senior

One of the leaders of the Gators offense, her coach says she has a nasty streak with her competitiveness on the court. Her ability to control the net will be a major factor if Seton Keough is to challenge Mount de Sales in the tough IAAM A Conference.

Samantha Brostrom

Centennial, hitter, senior

A two-time first team All-Metro performer, Brostrom is headed to SUNY-Albany next year on a volleyball scholarship. Her power and blocking skills are a major part of second-ranked Centennial's offense.

Liz Brown

Centennial, hitter, senior

The Howard County Player of the Year and first team All-Metro performer is the captain of the offense for the second-ranked Eagles. Her leadership skills will be called upon to help Centennial win its 15th state title.

Carli Converse

Severna Park, hitter, senior

Converse will be called upon to provide a major portion of the offense with the season-ending injury to All-Metro performer Sam Henke. Her versatility (she played libero last season) is a major asset for the Falcons.

Cassidy Cunningham

Notre Dame Prep, setter, junior

The Blazers move into the tough IAAM A Conference this year, and Cunningham will lead a young team. Her playmaking ability will be key for the Blazers to do well.

Casey Giovannazzi

Catonsville, setter, senior

One of the best players in Baltimore County, Giovannazzi is the engine that makes the Comets offense go. Her coach says her fantastic court knowledge helps to make everyone around her better.

Rachel Holehouse

Fallston, hitter, junior

A team leader last season as a sophomore, Holehouse will team with Shannon Webb to provide a formidable front line for the Cougars. When a big play is made for Fallston, Holehouse is usually involved.

Allie Reed

Century, setter, senior

The Knights improved significantly last year, and Reed was a major reason why. She'll need to duplicate the form that earned her second-team All-Metro honors last year if Century is to take the next step.

Megan Rosburg

River Hill, hitter, senior

Rosburg, a first-team All-Metro standout, provided the leadership that led the Hawks to the state finals last season. A fierce competitor who loves the game, she will have to duplicate her season of last year if River Hill is to return to College Park.

Hannah Schmidt

Mount de Sales, hitter, senior

Schmidt, a returning second-team All-Metro player, will try to lead the Sailors to their third consecutive IAAM A Conference title. Her coach says she has worked hard to become the all-around leader the team needs.
