Early outlooks for the SOC1/SOC2 in 2020 ?

Post by ManitouDan2 » Mon Jun 10, 2019 12:25 pm

Obviously Note Dame is the leader in the SOC1 , they didnt lose hardly anything and will add some young talent . Clay looses a bunch , they return some talent for sure but I think lost 6-7- players ? Green was young and will continue to improve ( would help if the entire adult group around them would just let them get their feet under them and just chill without hyping them , I've been there done that , and I regret it) No clue about the rest .

Burg returns a bunch , losing Claxon will hurt , but unless someone brings in some dandy pitching to slow down that offense then Burg will probably complete year 6 under the direction of Coach Ruby without a loss . Not sure how much Minford lost . Waverly lose the Robinson girls ? i Think so or at least 1 of them.

Other thoughts about next year ?

Burg will dominate for the next few yrs. The talent pool there is just too deep. And with a great feeder system, will be tough to get around them. Losing claxson will definitely hurt them on the experience side, but I believe the Howard girl will be a freshman this yr? I'm sure she will be getting a lot of time in the circle.
I look for this coming yr to be a repeat of this past yr. With the exception of Waverly, not sure where they will end up without the pitching to hold them in the games. Not sure what they have coming up?
NW lost 2 starters, minford a cpl, oak hill retains most I believe. Not sure about SW, but believe they were a young team as well.
Is it spring time yet? ;)

Howard will be in 8th grade.
It will be mostly Spence in 2020

Waverly will take the hardest punch losing both Robinson girls and their catcher,another big loss for burg is Risner..best outfielder and defensive player burg had,had a cannon for an arm..great senior leader..her and claxon will be greatly missed,oak hill loses one..their cf Mcnerlin,minford loses their pitcher sifford so I’m assuming Hannah Tolle will see most of the time in the circle for them,I think shoemaker was a senior also but not sure,I think Webster will surprise some next year..well coached and messer is doing good in the circle for them..valley,northwest and Portsmouth west will all struggle

Burg
Oak hill
Minford
Webster
Waverly
Northwest
West
Valley

I think beaver eastern joins soc2 in 2020 also but I’m not sure I forgot about them..if so they’ll be down in the bottom 2 or 3..they won’t be able to handle a tough soc2 schedule

In the SOC 2 we're running into even more dominance from Burg for the foreseeable future. Watching a lot of programs coming up the last few years through little league and Jr High. Burg has been dominate. The only program I thought could give them a run for them money in the SOC2 was Oak Hill. The addition of transfers of Glockner, William's and Hughes over the years have separated them again. Burg will continue to dominate now and through the foreseeable future.

SOC1 there's a little change coming.
ND is the team to beat for at least next season as Pitcher of the year Cass Schaefer returns. Their big bats in Detwiller and Cassidy are entering their prime production years.
Clay loses a lot but will look a like like ND has the last couple years as a dominate pitcher in Lutz will carry them until the bats mature
Green may be reaching their peak as ill stand by them that they are one of the best defensive teams in the SOC 1 or 2. The problem is lack of pitching. Jenkins has been pitching well with her travel ball team in big tourneys this summer. Maybe she returns full time to the circle. If so they take a big hit at 3rd.
Symmes Valley lost the player of the year for the second year in a row. Sooner or later it will catch up to you. But Odie always finds a way to get them ready.
New Boston, Western and East are all young and on the rebuild. Look for better seasons out of them but still need time before they leap from any of the top 4.
St. Joe will struggle. It's going to be a wakeup playing ND and Clay twice a year instead of Hanna WV.

Now Green has not only one of the best defenses in the soc 1. but the 2 as well ? .. CHT ... you are something else when it comes to pumping Green .

I take your opinion with a grain of salt. You've seen how many games this year?

Its very simple .. Green wasn't too competitive with Clay and ND last year .. They did zero in the tourney , their list of victories was a laundry list of the worst teams in SEO ... And yet you stated they had the best defensive in the conference ... now this summer you are stating not only do they have such a good defense as to be congratulated in the 1 but their D is good as top schools in the 2 .. well thats downright laughable. Yeah Green has improved , just walk before you run. You bring pressure on the young ladies that doesn't need to be there when you state stuff like that. Its not helping , it hurts them. So I'm not dogging Green or being negative towards Green , just dont put a target on their backs because of a dad on here pumping them up to levels they are not at , yet .
Lastly pitching is THE main part of the defensive , you cant honestly separate the two .. If you dont have adequate pitching then your D isn't very good , and its a stab at whoever the pitcher is .. like saying " boy our IF and OF re top flight but the girl pitching isn't as good as those studs in the field " ... So pitch the 3B you mentioned , she seems to be close to dominate, if you can win decent travel ball games the SOC1 would be a total cakewalk . And if you are weak in the circle it doesn't matter who plays third . Pitch your best and live with the results , happy Fathers Day .
