Last season ended with Shenandoah defeating Alexandria in the first round of the sectional before losing to Frankton in a competitive contest.
Junior Rachel Krathwohl proved to be a force by the end of last season and will likely be the cornerstone this year. Only one junior played last season for the Raiders.
Chaz Barker is the new coach for the Argylls. Last year, the team won just twice and ended the season with seven straight defeats.
Players likely to form the nucleus this time around are Bethani Herniak, Cierra Liddick and Kayla Martin. All three are proven winners from other sports.
Efforts to contact Kilian and Barker were unsuccessful.
