Where They’re Picked: Sixth
Phoenix in a Nutshell: It’s the first year in the league for Elon so unfamiliarity will be a factor. However, fourth-year head coach Charlotte Smith has four starters back and the majority of her offense intact. They are also tough at home, going 33-10 over the last three seasons.
Coach Smith Fun Fact: Her No. 23 jersey is hanging from the rafters in Chapel Hill. Get to know more about Coach Smith by watching her exclusive 1-on-1 interview with Bobby Broyles.
