Maryville is Overrated

This rating is based on the record. I still think Bearden is the favorite to make it to the state tournament. The best team MHS has played is Bearden. The best team Bearden has played is up for debate, but I'd say Hamilton Heights. 

Fortunately , there are two spots available for teams from this area to make the state tourney. I would be totally shocked if Bearden isn’t one of the two. Right now, I would consider Maryville, Catholic, and Oak Ridge the frontrunners for the other spot from Region 2. 

Can’t forget about Region 1- from looking at records and past results it looks like D-B, Morristown East & West,  and possibly Sevier County & TN High may be the top teams. Science Hill appears to be WAY down this year.

The kicker is that tournaments often have some unexpected results so who knows what will happen.

I do expect though, next season, Maryville will be the team in the district to beat. Catholic will be good, but will expect Maryville to go deep into the post season. 

I know it’s way too early to talk about next year but I would give Catholic a very slight edge over Maryville looking ahead to next year- if they are even in AAA next year. Isn’t Catholic going to be in the private division next year?

They are required to go down a division. I think it will be Maryville and Bearden again next year.

The Irish will be moving to Division II AA next season in the East region with McCallie, Baylor, and Chattanooga Christian (a 4 team Region sounds ridiculous to me).  They will return 4 starters and they will play an extremely competitive schedule against teams from Washington D.C. and possibly IMG Academy in a tournament along with some local schools both private and public.
