    Jenny DeMuth (5'10") Highland - One of the Region's top players last season. Averaged 19.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 3.8 steals a game. Led Highland to its' first ever Semi-State appearance. A 1st Team All-Area selection for both the Times and the Post Tribune.

    Lauren Hansen (5'11") Portage - A player that has stepped up to the plate after the graduation of a senior post player Erin Jedlikowski.  She is now a key component to the Portage offense that gives the Indians an additional weapon on the floor.

    Dana Lippelt (5'6") Valparaiso - A defensive specialist for the state's 5th ranked Lady Vikings last season. Plays with intensity and seems to enjoy the challenge of guarding opposing team's top player.

    Erica Martin (5'7") Kouts - Led Kouts to a 18-6 record and their first ever Semi-State appearance last season. One of the top scorers in the Region as sophomore. Averaged 21.2 points and 7.7 rebounds a game.

    Christy Poparad (5'9") Chesterton - Scored 24 points in her first varsity appearance last season. Will be expected to pick up the scoring slack now that Jackie Campbell is off to Colorado State.

    Courtney Rosenbaum (5'11") Valparaiso - Half of Valpo's junior twin towers. An excellent rebounder who will only get better with each game. A very physical player. Should be one of the Region's top post players this year.

    JoAnn Smith (5'5") Hammond Gavit - Quick as a cat defender who can also score. Averaged 13.7 points, 3.7 assists, and 5.7 steals per game last season. A Times 2nd Team All-Area selection last year.

    Kimberly Smith (5'10") Gary West Side - One of the most talented players ever to play at Gary West Side. She can dominate when she puts her mind to it. A 2nd Team All-Area selection last year for both the Times and Post Tribune.

    Lee Traynham (5"11") Valparaiso - The other half of Valpo's twin towers. She has improved tremendously over the summer playing AAU for the 15U State Champions from Fort Wayne. Doesn't show much emotion, but works harder than anyone on the floor. Should be one of the state's top junior post players this year.

    Sarah Zondor (5'7") Crown Point - A 2nd Team All-Area selection for both the Times and Post Tribune last season. Averaged 11.9 points and 5 rebounds last year. Was Tom May's first ever sophomore MVP. A Blue Star All-Star this summer at Indiana State.
