    Jamie Gutowski (5'7") Andrean - A 2nd Team All-Area selection for both the Times and Post Tribune last season. AP All-State High Honorable Mention. Started as a freshman and helped Andrean advance to their first ever Semi-State appearance. Averaged 8.8 points and 3.8 assists per game last year. An excellent floor general who plays with intensity and confidence.

    Michelle Jones (5'7") Gary West Side - She was first off the bench for the talented Lady Cougars last season. Saw extensive duty at the point last year. Expected to be another in a long line of Division I prospects from West Side.

    Julie Moniak (5'11") Hanover Central - Started as freshman for Hanover Central. Helped lead the Lady Wildcats to their first ever Semi-State appearance. Outstanding three sport athlete. Could be one of the best players ever to come out of Hanover Central by the time she graduates.

    Kim Sliwa (5'8") Boone Grove- Started as a freshman for the Lady Wolves. Excellent long range shooter. Comes from a long line of great athletes from the Sliwa family. She'll be expected to provide the scoring punch for Boone Grove next season.

A dangerous penetrating guard and outstanding defender. Led the Lady Bulldog's in blocked shots, and was named a defensive MVP for her team last season.
