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.
