Remainder of team: Kim Eaton, Fr.

Armstrong's outlook: "I am very optimistic. We finished second last year in the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference. We have several returning players from last year. A new player, Kim Eaton, is a very talented freshman. She is absolutely incredible. She has done well in summer golf tournaments against some of the best players in the county. She has beaten them and she hasn't even attended a high school class yet. I am looking for a lot of good things from her."
