Overview: Telstar took a step backward in 2011 after its run of multiple trips to regional and state finals in recent years, but the Rebels still threw a first-round scare into NYA before falling in overtime. The team remains young and is adjusting to players moving into different spots. Team speed should be a strength. Barter brings experience to the cage.
Coach's comment: "We're still working on right combinations for positions. If the defense doesn't jell strong, we could be playing a lot of defense." — Coach Gail Wight
