As I suspected, Pickerington Central being DQ'd in the 4X100 opens up the team race. They would have been a big favorite there, however, my second place prediction for them in the 4X400 is assuming Lane joins that relay now (he ran an open 400 this year so it wouldn't be his first time at that distance).

My dark horse is definitely Avon, which IMO has the best overall collection of entrants. The problem is I don't see them winning any event, but they have a lot of wiggle room.

I was going to run the boys D2, but then I saw that Glenville has 2 in both the 100 and 200; one in the 400; all three sprint relays are title favorites and a high jumper who should score. Unless disaster happens, they'll easily roll up 50-plus points.

Any other thoughts/predictions are welcome.
