Corydon (20-6)

The defending sectional champion Panthers return three starters: Marie Rothrock, Kayla Frederick and Regan Mosley.* Top players:

The Panthers should be the slightest of favorites to repeat in the sectional despite the addition of Madison. Coach Michael Uhl said this team is unselfish and any one of several players could be the leading scorer on a given night. He also said the Panthers have a little more size than a year ago and should do a better job on the boards. “Last year we were kind of small,” he said.* Outlook:

“It’s going to take us all of our 21 (regular-season) games to get ready. We’re just trying to get ready for that 22nd game,” Uhl said.* What they are saying:

Lanesville (10-11)

The Eagles return a solid core in Jessica DeWeese, Mahailey Hall, Emma Zeller and Annie Parsons.* Top players:

Lanesville needs a few seniors to step up and take more of an offensive role. The Eagles got a boost when Erica Daly, who sat out her junior year, rejoined the team. “She’s a hustler, a go-getter,” coach Kevin Smith said. “She has a nose for the ball.”* Outlook:

“Our goal is trying to be competitive against every team we play,” Smith said.* What they are saying:

North Harrison (7-14)

The Lady Cats return one of the top shooters in Southern Indiana in Kendra Lambert, who averaged 17 points a year ago. Jill Book (11.5 ppg) also returns. Stevi Burns, a 5-foot-6 freshman guard, should make a solid contribution off the bench.* Top players:

North Harrison should have enough scoring, but can it make enough stops and grab enough rebounds?* Outlook:

“We have a lot of experience at guard, but we’ll be playing a lot of people in the post,” coach Missy Voyles said. “Rebounding will be a key.”* What they are saying:

South Central (8-15)

The Rebels will be led by seniors Kelsey Miller and Mattie O’Connor, and coach Randall Schoen also is counting on sophomores Chelsey Kaiser and Sabra Walker.* Top players:

The Rebels play a schedule that no Class A school would ever think about facing, going against the likes of Castle, Jeffersonville, North Harrison, Corydon and Silver Creek. They also visit Providence, Loogootee and Tell City. “We might’ve overscheduled a little bit,” Schoen said, “but we really believe it will help us. I will help us down the road.”* Outlook:

“By the end of the season, I think we’ll be able to compete with New Washington,” Schoen said.– Kenzie Winstead* What they are saying:
