1. Foothill -- The Lady Knights and UC Santa Barbara-bound Jessie Porter, pictured, return six of seven starters from their CIF Division 1 runner-up team from last season. Foothill's list of returners also includes arguably the top center in the county, UC Irvine-bound McKenna Mitchell. Foothill also has added standout freshman Cana Manzella, who helped the Lady Knights capture the recent Foothill Fall Fling. Foothill edged Corona del Mar, 6-5, in the finals. The Knights also edged the Sea Kings in the Division 1 semifinals last season. Foothill is ranked second to Corona del Mar in the Division 1 preseason poll.
