Metro Top 10
1. Eagan: Junior Brie Orr is the most versatile player in the metro, and she has plenty of help.
2. Rosemount: Two Division I players in OH Brittany McLean (Minnesota) and S Erin Slinde (Iowa).
3. Champlin Park: The Rebels got off to a nice start with a victory over No. 4 Prior Lake.
4. Prior Lake: Lots of talent around a senior core of Lara Schultz, Olivia Spanton and Ella Francis.
5. Lakeville South: Emerging from Lakeville North’s shadow behind DI juniors Halle Johnston (Iowa) and Jenny Mosser (UCLA).
6. Wayzata: Perhaps the most talented team, top to bottom, in coach Scott Jackson’s tenure.
7. Cretin-Derham Hall: Intimidating height at the net with three players 6 feet or taller.
8. Roseville: The defensive-minded Raiders should be favored to win their fourth consecutive Section 4, Class 3A title.
9. Hopkins: A lot rides on sophomore setter Tara Lee’s ability to step in for graduated 2014 Metro Player of the Year Samantha Seliger-Swenson.
10. Minnetonka: Keep an eye on junior OH Annabelle Lohrenze, a 6-3 transfer from Memphis, Tenn.
• Others worth noting: Chaska, Eden Prairie, Cambridge-Isanti, Delano, Belle Plaine (Class 2A), New Life Academy (2A).
