PTC Outlook

Thoughts on the PTC this year? I believe 2 time defending champ Ravenna was hit hard by graduation. Do they have the talent to 3-peat? Kent and Norton should be viable contenders. Can Crestwood or Streetsboro make a run at the title, and where does Field fit into the equation? Coventry and Springfield look to still be rebuilding. Lots of questions, anyone have any answers?

The PTC Metro is not real clear right now.

Ravenna is a 3 years in a row defending champ so they already have the 3-peat. A 4th year will be difficult as they lost much in graduation and their best junior guard transferred to Kent so she could play soccer on a winning team.

Here's my preseason rankings:
1- Norton - return two top seniors scorers and reportedly got a big sophomore move in from Copley.
2- Kent - Have the best bigs and with the junior from Ravenna may be able to break the jinx that Norton has over them.
3- Ravenna - They greet a freshman class that was undefeated two years running in the middle school and they have one of the very best coaches in the league. All of this may not be enough to get another first place finish.
4- Crestwood - They have the youngsters to come knocking at the door but probably don't have the depth of a Kent or Norton.
5- Field - They lost the big girl that kept them respectable and must rebuild.
6- Coventry - They could vault ahead a couple of places but many questions remain.
7- Streetsboro - Similar to Coventry probably lacks the depth of talent needed to make a serious run.
8- Springfield - A bottom dweller who is far from the top teams.

How about the County Division? Should be a lot of parity there.

Who left Ravenna for Kent? Also, the transfer from Copley to Norton did not materialize. I am impressed with your insider knowledge though

The younger Fortson girl left Ravenna for Kent. I heard about Norton getting a transfer during summer play and that is not always reliable. That is why I said "reportedly". If Norton did not get a big sophomore move-in then I would have to switch Kent to number one and Norton to number two. Sooner or later the enrollment numbers could swing the advantage in PTC Metro girls basketball to Kent. The rest of the teams are all fairly close to the 300 mark for girls while Kent has over 450.

The season is off and running with Norton gaining two victories already.
Norton 65
Barberton 40

Norton 51
Green 42

Streetsboro 42
Garrettsville 31

Coventry 55
Southeast 50

Crestwood 43
Rootstown 40

Kenston 53
Ravenna 40

No real surprises here. Norton looks to hold on to its position as the favorite as the league's top team. Ravenna is in the middle of a youth movement which means a rebuilding year. Crestwood, Streetsboro and Coventry all held their own to start things off.

Kent opened with a 58 to 55 loss to Jackson. A decent showing on a night when I heard they were not at full strength. A sophomore named Rock had 25 from the forward position. This is interesting since she was a guard with very good shooting ability who now has grown into a post player. The league will not be able to overlook her.
No score reported on the Field game vs WRA.

Good job Coventry, many have Woodridge as tops in the PTC County Division.

I have a few other games from tonight:
Field 38
Waterloo 22

Southeast 61
Springfield 55 Actually a good game from Springfield as this is more scoring than we have seen in the past 4 or 5 years.

Crestwood 52
Garrettsville 47

Ravenna 60
Mogadore 37

No score yet on Norton vs Manchester
or Streetsboro vs Tallmadge - My sources tell me that Tallmadge won by about 10 points. Tallmadge goes to Ravenna on Saturday which will make things a little clearer.

Tallmadge won 39-29, but were up 39-21 when JV team entered game with about 2:00 to go (JV team is horrendous for Tallmadge)

Also, Tallmadge beat Ravenna today 36-30

Norton 51
Ravenna 41
Norton shows good depth and is the team to beat in the league right now. Ravenna has too many turnovers and have been out rebounded in their losses - their young kids need to grow up in a hurry.

Field 47
Kent 40
Kent is missing their big girl right now - suspension? Field is doing well as is Crestwood.

Streetsboro 42
Springfield 35
Springfield is keeping the scores closer this year and probably will pick off a victory before too long.

NORTON over Sptingfield not close. Springfield much improved but not enough to give Norton a game.

Norton 63
Springfield 39
I agree - no surprise here except that Springfield put some points on the scoreboard, in the past few years they would have been lucky to get to 20 against a first place team.

Ravenna 50
Streetsboro 35
Not sure that this is so much a statement by Ravenna as it is an indication that Streetsboro belongs in the bottom half of the league.

Field 45
Crestwood 28
Field has established themselves as a contender by beating both Kent and Crestwood. I still feel Norton has the best team but could it be that Field has the best chance to challenge the Panthers?

At this stage of the young season Field and Coventry are the biggest positives surprises along with Springfield's improved offense. Kent may jump up if they get their all league big girl back in the lineup soon.
