(Last year's record in prarentheses)

1. Marian Catholic (31-3)

The defending Class 4A state champs have a new coach in Dan Murray, but return plenty in Ashton Millender, Teniya Page, Kauai Bradley and Dajhae Mullins.

2. Homewood-Flossmoor (18-10)

New coach Tony Smith has the talent to take the program up a notch. He won three straight Class 4A titles at Bolingbrook from 2009-2011. Transfers in Illinois recruit Amara Coleman and junior Faith Suggs, plus the returning talent of Jaiveonna Norris and others, could push H-F to a postseason run.

3. Crete-Monee (24-5)

The Warriors made great strides last year and with Lindzy Cox, Marsha Howard and Ashley Henry back, and a tougher schedule, the Warriors could go deep into the postseason.

4. Bloom Township (22-6)

The Blazing Trojans lost two-time, Times Player of the Year in Bria Gaines (Western Kentucky) and lost Kat Strong to an injury, but they should be a force again. Guard Danielle King will have to step up and be the floor leader.

5. Seton Academy (23-9)

Ebony Bailey may be the best player in the GCAC White, as the Sting look to make their third straight super-sectional trip. Mariah Cole is also going to be a force.
