FIVE PLAYERS TO WATCH

Tara Booker, senior, Absegami:

Versatility is the signature of the 6-foot-1 senior forward who plays well on the inside and outside.

Sara Mostafa, senior, Absegami:

This 6-5 center rules the low-post area with her size, agility and playing experience.

Nancy White, senior,

Ocean City: The Red Raiders' point guard averaged 11 points a game last season and should reach the 1,000-point plateau this season.

Jesse Frasier, junior,

Holy Spirit: The 5-11 guard/forward is closing in on 500 points. Frasier, a Division I prospect, averaged 11.5 points per game last season.

Kaity Lent, senior,

Sacred Heart: The scrappy point guard is a scintillating playmaker who will reach 500 career assists and 1,000 points this season. The lefty is a three-year varsity starter.
