<![CDATA[* Angie Allen, Nixa, sr. - A 5-foot-10 talented post player, Allen has a high basketball IQ and can do a variety of things for new coach Jennifer Perryman. Allen can defend multiple positions and is versatile offensively for the Lady Eagles. * Hadley Blake, Branson, sr. - A good athlete, the 5-8 three-year starter is a top defender for the Lady Pirates. * Natalie Closser, Kickapoo, jr. - An all-Ozark Conference first-teamer last season, the 6-foot post player provides coach Jim Pendergrass with an inside presence. She averaged 13.5 points and 5.8 rebounds last season. * Hannah Cook, Ozark, sr. - The future member of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Cook should be primed for another huge season for the Lady Tigers. At 15.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game last season, she was a standout and possibly the area's best player as a junior. She can do it all offensively, is an excellent passer, solid defensively and can rebound. * Keri Cook, Glendale, sr. - Cook scored 11 points and had 9 rebounds per game as the leader of last year's Glendale team, which struggled after tough graduation losses. The rebuilding continues for coach Renee Temple, but the Lady Falcons should win more games this year. * Jordyn Danzer, Kickapoo, jr. - Danzer can shoot the ball and handle it for the Lady Chiefs. A consistent player, she'll be crucial for Kickapoo, which is still a young team despite not losing anyone to graduation. * Kim Deines, Glendale, sr. - The younger sister of University of Louisville's Megan Deines is back with the Lady Falcons after taking a year off. The 5-9 senior probably walks back on the court with the team's most talent, and should help rebuild the program. * Ashley Forrest, Branson, soph. - Forrest scored 11 points per game as a freshman and will need to score even more to replace key departures such as Moriah Dapprich. Forrest will be one of the area's best players for awhile, so fans should get used to her. * Toshua Leavitt, Nixa, jr. - One of the most talented guards in southwest Missouri, Leavitt could be primed for a huge season. She can get hot from deep and is athletic. She's one of the most fun players to watch in the area, boys or girls. * Ivy Reynolds, Ozark, sr. - Great role player for the Lady Tigers could be much more during her senior season. A solid rebounder, Reynolds has great leadership qualities that will help new coach David Brewer. * Evan Rohde, Ozark, sr. - A great on-the-ball defender, the quick and athletic Rohde should play an important role for the Lady Tigers. * Sydney Shepherd, Branson, sr. - A three-year starter for coach Kip Bough, Shepherd will be called on to continue her solid outside shooting and leadership. * Whitney Snow, Camdenton, sr. - The soccer star also has been filling it up on the basketball court for a few years. * Laura Vierkant, Kickapoo, so. - Was one of the best freshmen in the area last season, averaging 12 points per game. The 5-7 guard can play any guard position, and has the ability to get hot from long range. * Madison Wells, Nixa, sr. - The 5-9 guard is a very good defender, and one of the smartest athletes coach Perryman has on her roster. -Matt Schoch
