Outlook: Baker will play on the wing for the Red Raiders this season, coach Mark Wright said. She’ll be counted on for much of the scoring of the Red Raiders. She showed she was plenty capable last season, tallying 15 goals and three assists last season.
Outlook: Kim Dorr may seem like she plays second fiddle to Kim Hazlett for the Storm, but the now-senior is just as talented. It’s clear watching any Storm game that Dorr is a must-mark player, and her 20 goals and seven assists last season prove it.
School: Lynden Christian
Outlook: Hollander was the anchor in the Lyncs’ offense last season, scoring 14 of the team’s 35 goals, and this year should be no different. The Lyncs should be stronger this season, and Hollander will likely match or improve on her tally mark from last season.
Outlook: Holt allowed just 16 balls past her last season, helping the Lions make a name for themselves as the second-best defense in the league. She’ll be the leader of yet another strong Lynden defense and likely has a chance at the all-state team.
Outlook: Meridian coach Terri Tigert said she hasn’t ever seen Zapien play as well as she has in practice early this season. Zapien will anchor the Trojans’ midfield this year and, with no seniors, be a strong leader, taking over for the absence of Lexi McKinnon.
