From the ForumNext year’s favorites

These are my thoughts on what I know about these teams and what they have coming back this year.1. 7 Lakes– Great showing last year, lost a few good players including the amazing GK, but still a loaded side with plenty of potential. They always seem to start off slow and finish strong so that is why I have them at #1.
2. Clear Lake– This team will lose a little steam from the last few years, but they always seem to be there when it counts, tough district always prepares them for the playoffs.
3. Clements– It was a tough choice not to have them at #1 since they bring back most of the squad and seemed to be building a lot of success off last season. They may be the one to take the region this year.
4. Cinco Ranch-( My Dark Horse Team) This team got better and better as the season went on last year and they bring back a good number of those players. Watch out for them as they have the potential to finally get the monkey off their back.
5. Clear Springs– This team always seems to stick around and make a run in the post season, don’t know if they will be quite as strong as in the past but definitely will be in the thick of things.
6. Deer Park– Talented group that has a new leader this year, which should help them in the long run, BUT a weak district will not prepare them for the post season and that may be an issue.
7. Cy Fair– Good group with lots of potential and the ability to make a deep run, BUT have to go through the Katy district early in the playoffs and that is always a problem.
8. Katy Taylor– Yes another Katy ISD team in the top 10, what a tough district. This team is right up there with Cinco and 7 Lakes. Any given night they can beat the others and make a run for the region.
9. Brazoswood– Young team last year that looked really good at times. If they can keep that up tempo style they can make a run for the district title and a nice run.
10. Memorial– This team showed a lot of heart and grit last year in that brutal district and I can see them challenging for the crown and a spot in the regional tourney.Other Notables

Ft. Bend Austin- Will not be quite as strong as the past few years, but always has great players that will be competitive, the district does not totally get them prepared for post season.
HISD Lamar– Solid team with some talent has ability to compete with anyone in the top ten, but seems to bow out early when it counts.
Pearland– Good talent but very up and down last year, never seemed to be together as a team. A very weak district will not help them in the post season but I could see 2 rounds and maybe get to a 3rd.
