Chillicothe.....Won the 2018 championship by 5 points over runner up Miami Trace. Cavs lost close to 55 point to graduation. Field events. High jump looks good along with long jump and Pole vault being above average. Story here is what can be done with the Discus and shot put. Hurdles. Don't see much happening here. Sprints. 100 and 400 could do well but the 200 needs some work. 3200 looks good, 1600 average and the 800 will be down. Relays. All look average at this point.
Miami Trace.....Came up a little short in 2018. Field events should look good in the pole vault and the Long jump, High jump could be average but the discus and shot put will be hurting. Hurdles will look good. The 110 will have two nice boys going for them and the 300 will return 10 points. After the 400 the sprints don't look very good. 800, 1600 and 3200 will get a ton of points. Overall the relays look above average but need some runners for the 4x100.
Hillsboro.....Graduation didn't take too much but what it did take was a lot from one young man. Field events look strong overall but the Long jump lost 10 points. Hurdles will not have a lot. 400 looks good in the sprints with the 200 near average and the 100 won't do too much. 800,1600 and 3200 look a little under average. Relays are a solid average.
McClain.....this was the 4th team to score over 100 points in the FAC meet. Field events will be down. High jump looks the best. Hurdles will get their points. The 100 and 200 will look good but will need help in the 400. 800 and 3200 will be down but the 1600 will be okay. Relays will do well
Jackson.....Field events will not get a lot of points in 2019. Hurdles will be hurting. Not a whole lot in the sprints. 800. 1600 and 3200 show nothing. Relay will be a shade under average.
Washington.....Not much in the field events. Shot put and discus will be the strongest. In the hurdles the 110 might be the FAC best. Sprint show very little. 800, 1600 and 3200 are down. Relays will be down with only the 4x8 looking to get some big points
Miami Trace looks to have the best shot at the 2019 championship. Hillsboro and Chillicothe are real close to each other and really not that far back of MT. McClain looks a solid forth. Jackson and Washington looks to be a toss up.
McClain had a strong year at the MS level and should have no trouble moving into the varsity. Chillicothe Hillsboro and Miami Trace had some solid MS performers and will help the varsity their first year. Jackson and Washington had a down year and may offer little to the varsity.
