A rather too heavy region this year with Newark and Pick Central as the clear 1 & 2. Bradley, UA, W. South and Northland at the next level. A big drop off after that. Observations about the brackets:
1. Bradley (3), UA (4), Northland (5) and Groveport (7) in the same district. Wow! No fear of Bradley. However Bradley is well coached and an excellent defensive team. Still, UA is the team to beat in my opinion.
2. Westerville South (6) got a ridiculously easy draw and should make regionals. Don't let the record fool you, South is still South and you don't mess with the defending state champions.
3. Hard to pick a dark house but keep an eye on Pickerington North (9). They are battle tested with a rugged schedule. Any OCC Ohio team will be trouble especially Gahanna who may be overlooked. They are young but talented.
Eager to hear your thoughts!
