Kelleher added, "We have very young players, but they can make things happen."
HAC-II is much stronger than last season with the addition of both Montoursville and Southern Columbia. The Red Tornadoes are even more formidable than expected with the transfer of Christina Perles from Lourdes Regional, and Warrior Run has two of the division's top 10 players in Steph Shamburg and Tay Parker.
However, lost in two-horse race between Mount Carmel and South Williamsport for the division title last season was the fact Lewisburg tied Central Columbia for third.
We liked them second this year, behind Mount Carmel, but Kelleher thinks it's low.
"We need to show people that we're more than No. 2 in (HAC-II)," she said. "We need to show them we're No. 1."
It won't be easy but it could happen. That's no croc(k).
