VHSL 2014-15

Post by Invisible Rail »

The new VHSL season starts today! I know that these games matter for little but bragging rights until the conference tournament in January, but I know my team is super excited to get started playing regularly again!

How is everyone looking forward to the season, and does any brave soul want to venture any predictions as to how it'll ultimately turn out?

I'll take a crack at 1A West Regionals:

1A West, early season:

Conf. 45: Radford (defending 1A West runner-up)/Eastern Montgomery
Conf. 46: Chilhowie, Patrick Henry - GS
Conf. 47: It's wide open with the retirement of Coach Z, but I would say any combination of Hurley, Northwood, Haysi, Honaker.
Conf. 48: Clintwood, Eastside

I'll make my predictions on the local conferences, now that the season is well underway:

1A West:
Conference 45-- Radford (clearly the favorite here, as Travis said); Eastern Montgomery runner-up. Not a lot of strong competition in this conference from year-to-year aside from those two teams.
Conference 46-- I don't know much about this one, but Chilhowie seems to be fairly strong perennially.
Conference 47-- Gotta go with Honaker here, though they're not nearly as strong as last season without Jacob; runner-up will be tight between Hurley or Northwood.
Conference 48--Saw Clintwood play over the weekend and they have very strong potential to make it to state; J.I. Burton gets my vote for runner-up.

2A West:
Conference 39-- Probably a tossup between Richlands and Grundy. Both have a strong power player but not much in the way of a supporting cast. Champ and runner-up positions here could be determined by as little as 5 points in a 2nd championship game.
Conference 40-- Appears to be a lot of balance in this conference, but the two that stick out to me are Central (Wise) and Virginia High. From seeing their conference scores thus far, that could change from week to week, though.

From what I have either seen or heard

Conference 11: Atlee and Deep Run advanced in a smaller than usual field

I don't remember the conference names for Hampton Roads, but Menchville and Warwick advanced to Regionals, as did Princess Anne.

In one of the 4A conferences, Glen Allen won and Caroline was runner-up
