Hmm... predictions. I haven't been to closely in touch with the scene this year, but I'll take a whack.
1st - Seven Lakes, I believe they will take the top spot with ease
2nd - LASA, the safe bet here and you know there're out for blood this year after last year's fluke. However, how close they will be to Seven Lakes is a big question.
3rd - ??? I really don't know. 3 to 5 is always a toss-up and hard to predict. Clements has shown itself to be a strong team but we'll see if they can do it again. Cy Falls is also been consistently improving over the last couple years.
As for my own former team, I am confident Cy Woods will make a comeback this year. The program has struggled a little bit but they've really grew as a team this year and became region champs for the first time since 2010. I believe they have a realistic shot at the podium, though almost certainly top 5.
