Predictions for Nationals

Postby croman74 » May 3rd, 2009, 10:42 am

What are some of your predictions for who will win nats or even place top 10? For B I'm guessing that both Ohio teams will make top 5, and I think that both MI teams (Lakeshore and White Pines) will definitely place top 10 and probably top 5.

I would guess that Troy HS will win for Div. C.

I think Solon is going to defend their national title in B division
they are unstoppable, i dont think any team out there can match them
i have a feeling they're gonna blow everyone out of the water.....

I don't know about a blowout. Remember that last year they only won by one point.

I have to agree - I think Solon will defend for B division.

C is always tough. Troy, obviously, is the team to beat... but that doesn't mean it's not doable. The top 5 will be very interesting this year. I have to imagine the top 8 will remain pretty much the same, with maybe one or two changes, but the order of teams is less sure. I wonder if other state will be able to knock Ohio off of their dominant performance (in B division too, really).

I have a feeling Troy will not get first.

Booth is from Georgia. Troy HS is exceptionally strong, but I doubt they would win.

WWP Community MS has done well before. But somehow I doubt they will make...top 10. I don't know...just a feeling. They haven't...done as well as they could've at states this year.

very true
though this year they seem much better
blowing every team out at invites.
as well as as state destroying everyone with (correct me if im wrong) 76pts?
At ohio states (one of the toughest in the nation) thats incredible
Though im sure booth will give them a run for their money

Sewickly and Shady Side, def. top 10. Bala Cynwyd came in 11th last year, and this year they were even better, and Shady Side beat them.

I would watch out for Harriton (PA). It was an amazing accomplishment to win a tough state like PA with a score of 65pts. Averaging better than 3rd is unbelieveable.
