Lisbon Greyhounds 2017-18 girls' basketball preview

...“(We) return a strong core with some experience,” seventh-year coach Julie Petrie said.

Giana Russo had a standout freshman season at point guard, averaging 9.4 points (second on the team), 4.6 assist (third in the Mountain Valley Conference) and 4.4 steals (best in the MVC).

Russo will likely be looked at to play and even more prominent role this winter, but the same can be said for junior Morgan Fenderson and juniors Mallory Fairbanks, Valerie Doucette and Carly Drischler and sophomores Kiley Merritt, Charlee Cox and Siara Martin.

Mountain Valley Falcons 2017-18 girls' basketball preview

...The Mountain Valley coaches also tried to prepare for the Class of 2017’s departure, and are counting on this year’s crop of seniors — Emma Casey, Brooke Carver, Alyvia Lee, Amanda Petrie — can provide the leadership to keep the Falcons playing at a playoff level.

“We really look to them to be leaders and help our kids handle how challenging the season can get and surviving the highs and lows,” Casey said.

Along with the seniors and junior post Courtney Carrier, the Falcons will rely heavily on underclassmen: sophomores Avery Sevigny, Saydie Garbarini and Kierstyn Lyons will play a lot, and freshman Rylee Sevigny, who is expected to handle the point guard duties.

Mt. Blue Cougars 2017-18 girls' basketball preview

...Mt. Blue returns about 20 of its points per game from last year, led by sophomore Lexi Mittelstadt, who led the Cougars with about nine points per game as a freshman, and senior center Rebecca Harmon, who averaged around 6 ppg.

Mittelstadt take over the point guard position after moving away last year after defenses keyed on her.

“She needs the ball in her hand and helping us to make the right decision to get it down there,” Conlogue said. “She’s going to get her shots and her points wherever she is this year — she knows how to get away from people. We’ve kind of evolved a little bit to where we can help her get open, as well.”

Telstar Rebels 2017-18 girls' basketball preview

Telstar is back playing varsity ball after dropping down to the JV level last year.

“This group of girls has worked in the offseason to improve their game for the next level,” Brad Mills, who remains the Rebels’ coach, said.

Telstar also has a good-sized crop of freshman joining the program, some of whom participated in the Rebels’ summer activities.

The team doesn’t have a senior, but it still has enough players, 15, that Mills hopes Telstar will be able to field a JV team, as well.

Winthrop Ramblers 2017-18 girls' basketball preview

...“They have a really strong summer, and they’ve had a good preseason,” fifth-year coach Joe Burnham said. “They’re doing all the things that we want them to do. We’re looking for them to kind of step up.”

He says a fourth sophomore, Natalie Frost, is probably the most improved player over last year.

“Our sophomores are going to keep the bulk of our scoring this year,” Burnham said.

If health allows, Winthrop will probably start four sophomores and a junior, either Lane Audet and Katie Perkins.

The Rambles also will have senior Kathryn Ross, who was injured last season, and freshman Madison Forgue could make an impact off the bench.

Poland Knights 2017-18 girls' basketball preview

...Highlighting the returners is point guard Nathalie Theriault, who averaged 10.6 points, an MVC-high 4.4 assists and 3.3 steals per game last year.

There’s also Sarah Moody, Morgan Brousseau, Jessica Seeley and a handful of others that were part of last season’s run to the B South semifinals.

Only one senior graduated, so Poland will again have a deep bench.

The Knights aren’t a tall team, but Dolley said speed will be the Knights’ strength as the counteract their lack of size.

Monmouth Mustangs 2017-18 girls' basketball preview

...“I looked at them and I said, ‘I assume all of you guys want to win another gold ball,’” eighth-year Mustangs coach Scott Wing said. “And they all just, in unison, went, yep.”

Not all the juniors on last year’s state championship team return for their senior campaigns, but Monmouth was overflowing with depth in 2016-17 and is again overflowing with depth in 2017-18.

Guard Tia Day averaged 12.44 points, and MVC-best 5.2 assists, 4.1 steals and made 2.4 3-pointers per game last year. Abbey Allen scored 8.9 points and pulled down 8.9 rebounds.

At or near the same level are Hannah Anderson and Abby Ferland. Beyond those four is a deep and versatile bench, with players who probably would start on most teams, that Wing made full use of last year.

Leavitt Hornets 2017-18 girls' basketball preview

Whatever Leavitt is at the start of the season, coach Dave Gerrish hopes it will be different by the end.

“I think if we play hard, and I hate to use the old cliche, but if we kind of believe in the process of improvement all year, I think we could be really good by the end of the year,” Gerrish said.

Last year, the Hornets won a preliminary game against Morse before falling in the Class A South quarterfinals to Greely (it was the second year in a row the Rangers ended Leavitt’s season in the postseason).

Edward Little Red Eddies 2017-18 girls' basketball preview

Offensively, EL wants to be more aggressive and play at a faster pace.

“Constantly be on attack ourselves so we’re trying to keep our opponents on their heels as much as possible,” Cifelli said.

Senior guard Piper Norcross and juniors Jade Perry and Grace Fontaine were consistently in the starting rotation last year, and sophomore Chantelle Ouellette showed some scoring punch off the bench.

The Red Eddies have also added Hannah Chaput, who transferred from Lewiston, where she was a rotation player as a freshman in 2016-17.

“She and Grace Fontaine really give us a one-two punch of speed and outside shooting, so they’re very tough matchups for teams,” Cifelli said.
