Who's going to Nationals from PA? (B division)

Thanks to gyourkoshaven for the list of teams! I'm truly sorry if we forgot anyone and no offense was intended.

I say Shady Side and Bala Cynwood, but I think Strath Haven looks pretty good right now. It's gonna be pretty close...

It's the top 10 from last year (Minus Sewickley, who was replaced by Stroudsburg).

2009: Regionals-2, States-4
2010: Regionals-1, States-2, Nationals-19 :)
2011 (Co-captain): Regionals-1, States-1, Nationals-11 :D

My personal opinion is as follows:

Probability (out of 200%):
Shady Side- 100%- definitely going to nats
Bala Cynwyd- 65%- most likely going to nats
Strath Haven-32%- good chance they could upset BC
Hershey- 0.5%- aren't I so optimistic for my team?
Field- 2.5%- who knows?

Edit: Revised percents a little.

It's weird to see that people from other schools are more optimistic about my team than I am.

If I have time sometime soon (unlikely), I'll probably put up my probabilities list for all the teams on the poll instead of just the abbreviated version.

In all honesty, you guys did pretty well at States last year. We (Shady Side) were commenting that the second place spot was pretty close between you guys, us, and Bala Cynwood. With Sewickley out of the picture, I think you guys have a pretty decent shot this year. How are you doing so far?

Can we change our picks after regionals? If one of the teams completely demolishes everyone else or, on the other side, does horribly, or doesn't even qualify, we need to be able to account for that.

Just saying, some teams haven't been to invitationals, or any other tournament. :) But thanks for organizing the poll Helix_Nebula_Freak!

I agree with nerdygrlz/eaststroudsburg, we'll probably have a better idea about how teams will do at states after solon and regionals. I believe Strath Haven is going to solon, please correct me if I'm mistaken.

I agree, kp9ssa. Regionals will tell us at least a little more information as to how each team is doing. Right now, almost every team in the state hasn't had a competition yet, so I don't think that ANY predictions can fairly be made.
My SHMS Team Results:
2007
Regionals- 3rd
States- 5th

2008
Regionals- 3rd
States- 5th

2009
Regionals- 2nd
States- 4th

2010
Regionals- 1st
States- 2nd
Nationals- 19th

Except that the top three teams in this poll all have had a competition already, against each other.
