Either way it is by far not the earliest a prediction has ever been. Way-too-early predictions are a rite of passage nearly every year.

I'll throw this out there as my wild guesses.

Div B:
1. Springhouse
2. Shady Side
3. Strath Haven
4. Eagle View
5. Bala Cynwyd

Div C:
1. Harriton
2. Rustin
3. Stoga
4. LM
5. Shady Side

Both divisions were actually pretty hard to judge. I have a feeling SSA and BC are going to be improved on last year, to the point where I'm not sure Springhouse's place is assured. I also see Strath Haven moving up a bit, although if Eagle View comes out with some killer invitational scores, I'll be all aboard that hype train. I'd also love to back Franklin Regional more, but this seems like it's going to be a tough year for B division (which is good!). Park Forest is 7th, obviously.

As for C, Harriton is a national contender so they're clearly 1st, but I can see this year being a sort of bounce-back year in terms of depth; last year teams 2-6 were all close, but the game between 1 and 2 was much larger than it usually is; I see Rustin being stronger than last year, and Stoga and LM seem most likely to be able to keep up. Shady Side is motivated as well, of course; if they put the lessons from last year to good use, they could be right up there. I'm not convinced by Penncrest; I'd have to see a few very good invitational showings to judge if they've returned to form. If any other team challenges this group of 6 I'd be surprised, but Abington Heights and Northwestern Lehigh seem like the teams with the highest upside.

I don't know my Pennsylvania schools very well, but Harriton and LM are in the same district, right?

Div B:
2. Spring House
No.
It's not totally out of the question; we don't know what teams are looking like yet, and it's within reason for Eagle View to continue their upward trajectory, Shady Side to take another step, Bala Cynwyd to bounce back, or even Strath Haven to make a leap back to their peak strength. Springhouse's the favorite, of course, but their place is not quite as unassailable as, say, Harriton's.

Div C:
5. Rustin
I'm going to put this out, but based on last year's results, I would think that Rustin would at least keep within top three, not top five. And with Eagle View, it is a minor stretch to immediately beat Springhouse. I'm not saying it is impossible, but then again, anyone has the potential to change that if their school works hard for those ranks.
