I am only quoting this person, but I did see quite a few people refer to Mason as a YOUNG team in 2019; not sure that is actual. They had 8 senior starters, 7 seniors either 1st or 2nd team all conference and will graduate the 2X POY in GMC. But like most big schools, they will reload quickly!!D1 - My prediction is that all big league champs repeat (Mason, Moeller, Loveland). Mason and Loveland were both young last year, I expect them to be a top 5 team all year. Moeller has won the league three straight years. There will be some fun games with St. X but Moeller has had their number the last few years. I also believe Lakota East, Lakota West, Milford, Turpin and Elder will be in the mix. Dark horse is Walnut Hills.
D2 - Seems like most teams lost a lot of talent at this level. If it comes down to coaching SCD and Wyoming will be on top again. Roger Bacon, CCD, McNick, Indian Hill will all have a spot at the table. Dark Horse is Taylor. Is Ross considered Cincinnati? If so them.
D3 - Mariemont was good last year and they should be better this year. Seven Hills will win another district title. They’ve got a nice program there. Madeira will be down but with so little talent in D3 they may still win a district title or at the minimum, play for a district title. Dark horse: Finneytown
Columbus DeSales has moved back down to D2 making them I would think the favorites next to Bay.D2 seems to be the most poised for changes due to any enrollment adjustments.
Both finalists were very close to D1.
Howland graduates a lot.
Not sure about Tipp City.
DeSales could move back down to D2.
Lexington was in the final four but graduated about a dozen kids I believe.
I'm sure Bay will be back with a vengeance.
CVCA graduated a couple very good players but will likely reload.
Gonna be a lot of teams in the hunt in D2. That's for sure.
