Seniors Ali Forde, Kate Collier and Taylor Peacocke, junior Brooke Pahukoa and sophomore Brittany McPhee are joined by coach Jasen Thomas on this year's girls team.
G, 5-9, Jr.
Pahukoa keyed another strong season for the Vikings, who finished 22-2 after placing fourth at last year's 4A state tournament. She averaged nearly 15 points as well as five rebounds, three assists and three steals and led Lake Stevens to a third straight district crown.
F, 5-11, So.
After being named co-MVP in the SPSL North as a freshman, McPhee earned the honor outright this season. She is among the state's top scorers at 22.4 points per game and also averages 11.5 rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks for the once-beaten Rams.
C, 6-1, Sr.
The multitalented Forde, the KingCo 4A MVP, is a double-double threat every game, averaging 14.3 points and 13.5 rebounds, four steals, three assists and three blocks. Forde, who is nearing 1,000 career points, will play basketball and volleyball at Idaho.
C, 6-3, Sr.
The inspirational Collier led the Warriors to regionals despite undergoing chemotherapy for leukemia. The Nisqually League MVP averaged 16.6 points and became the school's all-time scoring leader. She is one of 24 girls chosen to play in the McDonald's All-American Game.
G, 5-9, Sr.
A three-time All-KingCo 4A selection, Peacocke has a career scoring average of more than 18 points and checked in at 19.3 this season. She also averaged 6.1 rebounds, 4.3 steals and 3.2 assists. Peacocke excels at softball as well and plans to play both at Sacramento State.
Thomas, in his ninth season as head coach, has the fourth-ranked Quakers on a roll. They are in the 3A state quarterfinals with an 18-game win streak after finishing 10-11 last year. Franklin reached the 2009 tourney, but hasn't been in the quarterfinals since 1995.
