1North Rockland, Suffern, Arlington, Scarsdale, Carmel
S1-A appears set for its best battle in years due to Arlington's major graduation losses.
2Shenendehowa, Guilderland, Saratoga, Shaker, Niskayuna, Ballston Spa, Queensbury, Bethlehem,
Another very tight year in the S2-A with four teams residing among Class A's top 8 teams. Reigning champ Shen may have  a slight edge.
3Fayetteville-Manlius, Liverpool, Cicero-North Syracuse, Baldwinsville, West Genesee
FM is an overwhelming favorite but with Liverpool still up among A's top 15 teams.
4Ithaca, Corning, Elmira Express, HorseheadsIthaca returns everyone while Corning loses three of its top 5, so the S4-A could tilt toward the Little Red.

Penfield is the reigning champ and appears set for another great fight with McQuaid and the rest of S5-A..
6Frontier, Orchard Park, LockportBoth reigning champ Frontier and Orchard Park have most of their top 6 back, so S6-A appears set for a bug showdown.

Syosset and a deeper Port Washington are pretty even in preseason.
