Here are my predictions:
1.Ripley- The Blue Jays lose a few seniors, but return much of the core of that made it to the DIV district final in the Southwest, and had a very good reserve team this year.
2. Eastern Brown- Coach Beucler's Warrior's return four key players in Hamilton, Vaughn, Burns, and Ruckel. Hopefully Kaleb Martin can recover the injury that limited his time this season
3. North Adams- They return their two leading scorers in McCormick and Elijah Young, and their reserve team only lost one game this year. If the pieces come together well the Green Devils could have a very good year.
4. West Union- The loss of their seniors this year will be an obstacle, but the Dragons should still be a very competitive team next season with Rothwell, Kingsolver and Tomlin returning.
5. Lynchburg- The loss of Eric McLaughlin will be tough, but Pierson is a nice guard, Coach Carson's Mustangs could surprise some people next year, but I think it will be tough will all the talent they've graduated recently.
1. Fairfield- They return Bentley, Simmons, Wiley and Buddlemeyer, which is a nice core. Hopefully the Lions can avoid the injury bug that hurt them in the middle of this year.
2. Whiteoak- With Hamilton, Rand, and the younger Yeager all returning they should compete for the small school title. Coach Kibler did a good job in year one with the Wildcats, and definitely has them trending upward.
3. Peebles- The Indians lose a lot from their team that made it to the Elite 8 this year, but return guard Weston Browning and had a nice reserve team this year. Coach Arey always does a good job, and they may surprise some folks next season.
4. Fayetteville- They lose a lot of their size from this year, but the Rockets do return key players McCulley and Murphy.
5. Manchester- Hopefully the Greyhounds find some stability with their coaching staff, which will help their program going forward, but they lose leading scorers Utterback and Combs to graduation.
Overall, I think the league will be competitive in 2018-2019, with any of the top three in both the big and small school having a chance to win their respective divisions. I do think the big school division will be a little better both a the top and in terms of depth. It will be interesting to see how it all shakes out. What does everyone else think?
