It was a memorable season for Duxbury last winter, as the Dragons rolled through the regular season and then turned it up in the post-season en route to the MIAA Division 2 state championship.

Could it be a repeat performance? With a big group back, it could be.

Duxbury (24-1-2) will start the 23-24 season as the #1 team in the HNIB News Massachusetts Girls Division 2 Top 10.

Ready to make a big splash this winter is #2 Falmouth (15-4-5). The Clippers possess a solid crop of younger players.

Perennial power Canton (19-3-4) starts at #3. The Bulldogs lost some key pieces from last season’s state finalist, but should have enough to be in the thick of things.

New to Division 2 this year, #4 Cape Cod Furies (12-9-1) will hit the ground running. The Furies have ample scoring options and are tough in goal with senior Olivia Avellar.

2022 champion Algonquin (18-4-1) is at #5. The Titans play a solid game and are led by an impressive nucleus.

#6 Burlington (16-5-2) lost just a few pieces from last year’s squad that reached the D2 quarterfinals. Among the returnees is Middlesex League Freedom Division MVP Isa Fischer.

Adding Bourne, Carver and Mashpee to a new co-op program will be a help for #7 Sandwich (15-6-1).

#8 Milton (18-2-4) returns Lila Chamoun in goal so that will give the Wildcats a change to win every night.

A program that made great strides a year ago was #9 Martha’s Vineyard (12-6-2). MV is banking on continuing that trend.

#10 Pembroke (14-7-1) closes out the pre-season D2 Girls Top 10. Junior Jen Birolini (40 goals) will lead what should be a powerful offense for the Titans.

Teams To Watch: King Philip, Walpole, Stoneham-Wilmington
