Greg,

Do we have a list of what teams are headed to what regional? It might help spark some talk about the various regions and I've only seen our region (Solon).

Southeast

Grove City
Dublin Jerome
Olentangy Liberty
Olentangy
Mount Vernon
Centerburg
Chesapeake
St. Charles
Unioto
Bishop Rosecrans
Fairfield Christian
Fisher
Symmes Valley
Wheelersburg
Minford
Highland (Morrow County)


This region has three of the four smallest schools in the Regional tournament. Bishop Rosecrans is the second-smallest, Fairfield Christian is the third-smallest, and Fisher is the fourth-smallest. Symmes Valley, after Ft. Jennings and Mathews, (I believe) is the third-smallest public building in the Regionals tournament - they are playing in this region. Three of the top five non-urban school districts by enrollment, South-Western City Schools (largest), Olentangy (second-largest), and Dublin (fifth-largest), comprise another 25% of the regional field. Suffice to say this may be the region of "enrollment extremes".

Here's what we've got in the West Central, as per Mr. Bellas's email this morning:

Archbishop Alter High School
Beavercreek High School
Carroll High School
Centerville High School
Chaminade-Julienne High School
Eaton High School
Kettering Fairmont High School
Miami Valley School
Miami East High School
Miamisburg High School
Northmont High School
Oakwood High School
Sidney High School
St. Marys Memorial
Tippecanoe High School
Valley View High School

A pretty normal lineup for Dayton and the surrounding area...if we're talking predictions, I'd say on first glance that the usual suspects (Sidney, Northmont, Tipp) will be angling for the state berths, while an ascendant Beavercreek will also be a factor.

In North Coast, I like:
1. Solon 2. Aurora/BBHHS/Westlake

In WC, I like:
1. Sidney 2. Tipp/Northmont/Beavercreek

In NE, I like:
1. Copley 2. Green/Cloverleaf

In SE, I like:
1. St. Charles, 2. Fisher (Isn't this the top 2 every year down there?)/ Liberty / Jerome

In NW, I like:
1. Toledo School for the Arts 2. ???
Although, its a shame Maumee Country Day, Southview and Ottawa Hills aren't participating because all three of them are extremely solid teams.

In SW, I have no idea, so I'm going to say:
1. Walnut Hills, 2. ????

On paper, the toughest regional to me looks like West Central -- I didn't even put Centerville or Miami Valley in my predictions up top and they've had great seasons.

Second place behind Solon in NC is wide open, as is second place at NE behind Copley. Cloverleaf is young, but seems to have gotten better every time I've seen them this year and Green is solid as always.

This is just my two cents... you people in WC/SW/SE/NW are far more qualified to talk about those regions than I am.

I think others would agree that in previous, recent years, the toughest region has almost always been North Coast/the former NE Region. That region is going to be wicked tough again with Solon and, as Bob alluded to, the potential logjam for second with BBH & Westlake, but I think this year's toughest region is definitely West Central.

WC - between the fact we're in the post-Sam (and teammates) era, and with the return of Beavercreek, that region's state-qualifying spots appear to be as open as it has been in a long time - similarly, it appears to be the deepest region. Sidney looks like the bettor's favorite to punch one of the tickets to State, most likely the Regional Champion. Then we have Northmont, Tipp, Beavercreek, Centerville, and MVS. In total, six teams that, by estimation, that all have a good chance to advance. I'll predict Sidney as champ, and Northmont as runner-up (experience wins at the end of the day, right?) - but it wouldn't surprise me if we see Tipp get that second spot. Or another GWOC school mentioned above. Or... the fifth-smallest school in the tournament, Miami Valley.

NC - Solon, as long as they play on their A game as usual, should win the NC. Brecksville-Broadview Heights won Copley's OAC, yeah? They'll probably be playing Westlake in the loser's bracket final. I won't rule out Harding, but those first three are obviously strong in recent history (last year/this year) @ the OAC format.

NE - Copley, Lexington (no real justification for picking Lexington over Cloverleaf, this is more of an expression that "regional runner-up may be up for grabs".)

NW - Toledo School for the Arts, Hicksville; this may be the region where some of the better teams aren't playing @ Regionals (Sylvania Southview, MVCDS, Ottawa Hills, Toledo de Sales). Regardless, TS4TA should be good enough to get one of the two spots. My guess is Hicksville / Swanton will play in the losers' bracket final.

SW - Walnut Hills, St. X / CHCA - not to put this region down, but like the NW, this is pretty much an unknown. Walnut Hills we know is always good; for the second spot... St. X & CHCA sound like good, safe bets. But then again, there's also Indian Hill, Seven Hills, and SCOL Champ Clinton-Massie.

SE - St. Charles, Fisher - IMO, St. Charles > Fisher; that much I know. I have Fisher taking the second spot, but they could get eliminated before loser's bracket final (ugh). Watch out for Minford! I don't remember what team I read for @ the Golden Shamrock, but they were from Minford, and they looked like the caliber of team that could play with Jerome & Liberty, as well as a team that could give Fisher fits. Also look out for Olentangy High School (not Liberty). St. Charles will win this region, will give a slight edge to Fisher to take the second spot but Jerome, Minford, and the two Olentangy's should round out the top six (don't know what order, though, in spots 2-6).
