Nanticoke
Coach: Ed Grant

2018-19 results: 19-7, beat Berwick, 31-20, in the District 2 Class 4A third-place game; lost to Mifflinburg, 43-29, in the PIAA first round.

Players to watch: Seniors - Emily Hauer, Jen Kurkoski. Juniors - Lauren Casey, Abby Cullen, Genevieve Nalepa. Sophomore - Riley Baird.

Outlook: While Nanticoke Area has bumped up from Division 2 to 1, the Trojanettes will still be able to see how they stack up with the Division 2 teams. Lake-Lehman, Wyoming Area and Hanover Area are all on the schedule before Christmas. Nanticoke Area is one of the league’s most consistent programs. It returns a few key players from last year’s state-qualifying team. Baird, a 5-foot-2 guard, appears ready to take on a bigger role. Casey, a 5-11 forward, was a CV all-star last season.
