Here's a roster list, with high schools: Jacole Hairston, Magna Vista, Kayla Goins-Carroll County, Shea Smith-Franklin County, Krista Cox-Floyd County, Myah Robinston-Heritage/Leesburg, Boreika Burwell-Franklin County, Lindsay Martin-Carroll County, Kemani Crawford-Robert E. Lee Staunton, Kylene Culler-Patrick County, Jessica Rhodes-William Byrd, Katy Kipps-Blacksburg.

   Head Coach Bryan Harvey coached Glenvar to a pair of state crowns before heading to Ferrum, He's in his ninth season at Ferrum. The Panthers will host a sub-region at home that includes Capital University, Eastern Mennonite and Christopher Newport. Action begins Friday with Ferrum(26-2) being the number one seed and host.
