Duarte’s Mary Rose Magnolia (#22) has graduated but the Falcons will still compete.

1. South El Monte Eagles (17-6):
Junior Ashley Diaz is the best player in the Mission Valley League. MVL title won’t be enough for South this season.

2. Monrovia Wildcats (14-10):
All the underclassman that made this team dangerous a year ago, make it a title contender this year. Keep an eye on Adrienne Guerra.

3. Arroyo Knights (12-9):
They lose Mayra Helguera’s pitching but return a host of thumpers.

4. Arcadia Apaches (18-7):
Richard Klumpp is the new softball coach.

5. Duarte Falcons (18-5):
The pitching of Madelaine Tickey keeps this team in the hunt, but they need a replacement for Mary Rose Magnolia.

6. Rio Hondo Prep Kares (15-4):
The Kares are the defending champs in the Prep League, they open the season at Hesperia Christian.

7. El Monte Lions (6-12):
Sophomore Seanna Jimenez might be the best player in the Mission Valley League.

8. La Puente Warriors (12-7):
Senior Reina Barba gives up very few runs and is part of the reason why LP will contend.

9. Sierra Vista Dons (19-5):
Might be forced to take a step back while younger talent develops.

10. Temple City Rams (14-14):
Rio Hondo League champs have to find a way to replace their best hitter (Haylie Roach) and best run producer (Ciara Schnyder).

Others:
Alhambra Moors (13-8):
Until they find some pitching Moors are going to lean heavily on sophomore Faith Torres and her bat.
Gabrielino Eagles (11-10):
Senior Maite Reece makes this team a threat.
Baldwin Park Braves (7-15-1):
A young team a year ago needs to come of age in 2014.
San Gabriel Matadors (8-17):
Offensive potential is there, but they have to find pitching.
Mt. View Vikings (4-12):
Open this week at San Gabriel.
Rosemead Panthers (3-16):
The Panthers open with Baldwin Park on Thursday (3/6).
