This Year's Outlook
The Lakers fell back to 4th in the S3-C last year from a Sectional triumph in 2015 as there was just not enough depth behind the outstanding top duo of Clara Rowles and Meggie Hart. The two standouts should be among the top 5 in Class C in the state this year, but the team will need some big additions to challenge CBA at Sectionals this year.

This Year's Outlook
Seniors Kron and Golas give the Bulldogs a strong top tandem, but any thoughts of unseating States champ Newfane from its hold on the S6-C title will require some reinforcements.

This Year's Outlook
The Wolves captured their first Sectionals crown in 16 years last season and finished 4th at States. Now with the 2014 and 2015 S5-D champion  Addison back down in Class D and HAC now reclassified to Class C, the Wolves will need to find a way to replace longtime stalwart Hannah Reinhardt. Senior Emma Fiorini made a big leap last year to become part of the frontrunning duo with Reinhardt, and she will lead a pack of Wolves that looks to be running pretty evenly with reigning S5-C champ Waterloo and with Livonia.
