2018 High School Season

The blog has been silent for a while. Club season is well underway with HS open gyms in progress. Let's discuss the upcoming season.

Regional Updates - Who are the teams to beat in each region?
Impact of reclassification - Mt Vernon to D1, Lasalle to D2
What are the State Tourney Regional match-ups this year?
Preseason favorites?
Team discussions. Some items to get discussions going:
Impact of coaching change at Darby?
Does Moeller have depth? Top end talent from 18-1s but not a lot of presence on rest of 18s and 17-1s. Will they need depth?

Well let's start from the top.

In Division 1, the teams to beat in each region will be:
North - Defending State Champion, St Ignatius
South - Moeller, right behind them St X and Elder
East - Darby, behind them ??
West - Beavercreek, with Northmont and Lakota East being there

Regional Matchups should be the same as 2015 which were:
W1 vs. N2 - Beavercreek vs. St Edward
E1 vs. S2 - Hilliard Davidson vs. Moeller

N1 vs. W2 - St Edward vs. Centerville
S1 vs. E2 - St Xavier vs. Hilliard Darby

Preseason favorites:
Moeller, Darby, St X and the next tier includes St Ignatius, Beavercreek and Elder

My top 5 would be:
1. St X
2. Elder
3. Beavercreek
4. Darby
5. Moeller

List of contending teams along with returning starters:
St X - 4
Elder - 3
Beavercreek - Mikesch and at least 1 or 2 others I believe
Darby - 3
Moeller - 2
Ignatius - 2? (Flanagan and Catanzaro?)
Northmont - 2? (Foy and Walker)

Predicted lineups of the GCL, returning starters denoted with an *...

X-
S Kastner (Attack 17-1)
OH1 Pung* (Vanguard 18-1)
OH2 McCarthy* (Attack 18-1) or Hilvert* (Attack 18-2)
MH1 Mauch* (Attack 17-1)
MH2 Thaxton (Attack 17-1) or Ostendorf (Attack 18-2)
RS Connaughton (Attack 17-1), Hilvert, or Moeller (Attack 17-2)
L- Huber* (Attack 18-1)
DS- Zelczak (Attack 18-1)

Moeller-
S Peed* (Attack 18-1)
OH1 Owens (N/A) or Gallagher (N/A)
OH2 Fuller (Attack 16-1) or Haas (Attack 16-1)
MH1 C. Kiser* (Attack 18-1)
MH2 B. Kiser (Attack 18-1)
RS Devolve* (Attack 18-1)
L- Burnett (N/A), Callahan (Attack 17-1), Haas, or Stradley (Attack 16-1)

Elder-
S- Daeschner* (Attack 18-1)
S2- Wauligman (Attack 17-2) or Koewler (Attack 16-1)
OH1- Albers* (Attack 18-1)
OH2- Hargett (Attack 17-2)
MH1- Schatzman* (Attack 18-1)
MH2- Murphy (Attack 17-2), Hicks (Attack 18-2), or Eary (Attack 18-3)
RS- Stapleton (Attack 18-2) or Hoffman (Attack 18-3)
L- Bernard (Attack 17-1) or Dirr (Attack 18-2).

Peed/Kiser is gonna be a tough combination for anyone to stop and I haven't seen a team block Albers since he entered Elders starting lineup just before Centerville Elite last year. But I don't see anyone beating X this year. They're too good, too experienced, and too deep.

I think LaSalle moving down to D2 is interesting... Was that voluntary?

Anyway, with the team they had last year, LaSalle could have made a serious run at the D2 title I think - but this year, they don't return many guys who contributed last year. Will be interesting to see if a new coach can get them ready for the D2 South regional tournament by the end of the season where they'll have McNick and Badin as the top competition.

I see St. X as the top South region team, Moeller and Elder just behind. I'll give the #2 south spot to Elder based on more experience all around, but Moeller is right there...

Beavercreek will be powered by Mikesch again, and I would venture that he can carry them through to the final 8 again - they will need another couple of guys to step up (Abbitt and others?).

Darby will reload again and be the cream of the crop in the East I think. We will see over the next few years how the coaching change affects the program, but I doubt you see much of a change this year. The #2 spot in the East is up for grabs, I think, since Westerville South graduated a lot of talent. Probably between Olentangy and Dublin Scioto.

Ignatius seems to have quietly built a very fundamentally sound program in the North, and I expect them to be #1 for the North region again. I think St. Ed's could be down a bit (lost Margevicius) and could be beat out by Jackson for the #2 seed.

Great list! Would be cool if someone could do the same for teams like Beavercreek, Darby, and Ignatius. Certainly seems to show X has the most top level (18-1 and 17-1) talent and depth compared to Moe and Elder.
