Greenfield lost three starters from last season. The Lady Yellowjackets are led by Brittany Peoples.
Camden at Huntingdon (Both) -- Camden comes to Huntingdon to open the season. On the girls' side, Camden is looking to be much improved from last season, and Huntingdon wants to be able to take that next step to wint he district and maybe reach the region semifinals. The Lady Lions are led by Kristen Capps, and Huntingson is led by Allee Maxwell.
