The Terriers, who made the region final for the first time, are coming off their best season in school history under coach Gabby Sundquist, who was named the Western Conference’s National Division coach of the year. To continue with that success, Hillsborough has to find some replacements after losing five players to graduation, including both captains — defensive specialist Brianna Drummond and outside hitter Sophia Ousley. The go-to player this year will be Lucy Pellenbarg, a 6-foot-1 middle hitter who can be a force at the net.
