Returning letter winners: Junior Alisha Noon and sophomore Mickayla Thompson.

Amongst those girls is some raw talent, I believe. I look for the team to continue playing with confidence and dignity, as well as, grow into a strong, competitive team for the upcoming years."
Coach: Rick Rettig, ninth season.
2012 record: 7-3 overall, 5-0 in the NLL (tied for second overall).

NORTHERN BUCKEYE CONFERENCE
Coach: John Cavendish, 13th season.
2012 record: Fifth in the NBC.
Returning letter winners: Seniors Hannah Cook and Sam Whritenhour; and juniors Abbi Sheldrick, Paige Himburg Alysa Rice and Alicia Bratton.
Coach's quote: "Every high school athlete should experience the state tournament at least once. We have a bunch of experience back this year and I really like our chances of advancing to the district tournament. Once there, anything can happen. I'm really looking forward to this season."
Coach: Michele Story, seventh season.
2012 record: 7-4 overall, third in the NBC.
Returning letter winners: Seniors Savannah Baker, Taylor Carr and Sierra Semko; juniors Maggie Tuite and Heather Ickes; and sophomore Alexis Miller.
Coach's quote: "This is the most experienced team Elmwood has fielded in the history of our program. Needless to say, the expectations are pretty high for this year. The ladies have been out golfing over the summer and should begin the season at the same level we finished at last year. We intend to focus on sharpening our skill sets with every match, and demonstrating improvement each night. Our experience should give us the mental toughness to be successful this season."
Coaches: Nathan Luce, sixth season.
2012 record: 20-0 overall, first in the NBC.
Returning letter winners: Seniors Emily Myrice and Hannah Davis, junior Madeline Asmus and sophomore Gwen Amborski.
Coach's quote: "This group has shown dedication throughout the summer, and the four returning letter winners have become team leaders. The players have worked hard and been competitive so far. We need a few underclassmen to emerge to round out our varsity roster. Our overall goal is to work to improve some aspect of our game every day in hopes of contending for another league title."
Coach: Jim Lorenzen, 10th season.
2012 record: Fourth in the NBC.
Returning letter winners: Senior Maalaea Newell and sophomore Savannah McIntosh.
Coach's quote: "Our two returning players will be the anchors for a very young team this season. Maalaea and Savannah have shown improvement throughout the summer and should contend for league honors. The four freshmen who we will start have the potential to be very good in the next few years if they stick together and continue to work hard. As always, short game improvement will be the key to success."
Coach: Jeff Miklovic, fifth season.
2012 record: Did not have a full team last season.
Returning letter winners: Junior Rachel Peters, and sophomores Kelcie Bean and Morgan Rose.
Coach's quote: "There is enough interest to play our first varsity golf schedule for the girls. We have our three letter winners and a couple of somewhat experienced players in Olivia Hall (a senior) and Lindsay Davis (a junior) who have previous golf team experience. Freshman Alexis Julien rounds out the squad. Rachel Peters could be one of the top female golfers in the area, as she has a very solid swing, and is a fierce competitor. Rachel could lead this team to a very good first season, if she plays within her strengths and stays in her game, every shot. She was a district qualifier the past two seasons."
