Time For The Way Too Early 18 S/S Predictions


Looks like everyone is as bored with 40s/55s as I am.  Nothing wrong with being over 40, but everyone knows everyone and there isn’t a lot of mystery.  Luckily for some of us, 18s flights just came out so let’s take an early look.  The biggest thing I saw looking at everything was that the 4.5 Flight B is BRUTAL .  Time for the way too early 18 and over predictions.  All of these picks are subject to the rosters actually filling up.

5.0+ - ten teams so it looks like only one flight but we have: JCC/Reiman, Greenhill/Vadhat, Royal Oaks/Stitt, T Bar/Bartzen, Prestonwood/Perkison, Lakes/Jannasch, Brookhaven/Harllee, Cooper Fitness/Noel, Greenhill/Rossouw and Oak Creek/Fleming.  With only three lines playing one player can make a huge difference so I’ll reserve judgment on these teams until the rosters fill up. 

Last year’s playoff teams were, in order of finish: Village/Perkison, T Bar/Bartzen and Lakes/Jannasch.  Village/Perkison finished second at sectionals.

4.5 Flight A – Brookhaven/Bartlett, High Point/Somabut, Samuel Grand/Hanna, Eldorado/Browning, Royal Oaks/Brauer, Greenhill/Rossouw, Greenhill/Ohl, McKinney/Jett and T Bar/Fikes.  Some of the easier 4.5 flight play matches to be had will be in this flight.  Rossouw waltzes to the playoffs and whoever finishes second got a gift.

4.5 Flight BJCC/Reiman, Lakes/Way, Seay/Schober, Garland/Sisk, Greenhill/Tucker, Brookhaven/Harllee, Lifetime/Arcaria, Stonebridge/Anderson and Oak Creek/Herget-Clark.  Let the complaining begin.  Five of the eight best teams are all in this flight.  Clearly this year’s flight of death.  Flight B and Flight C need a reshuffle.

4.5 Flight C – Hackberry Creek/Myers, Gleneagles/Juhn, Oak Creek/Pribadi, Greenhill/Alzuro, Fair Oaks/Valentin, SpringPark/Aguilar, Huffines/Hammond, Canyon Creek/McHugh and T Bar/McColpin.  This flight is really a mystery and I really want to wait for more roster sign ups.  It doesn’t have the low end of Flight A but it doesn’t have the high end of Flight B. 

Last year’s playoff teams were, in order of finish: (QT) Fretz/Noel, Oak Creek/Pribadi, Greenhill/Rossouw and Lakes/Way; (city playoffs) JCC/Reiman, Oak Creek/Herget-Loose, Fretz/Noel and Brookhaven/Harllee.  JCC/Reiman made sectional semi-finals.

4.0 Flight AMcKinney/Kanchi, High Point/Somabut, Eldorado/Browning, McKinney/Berman, Oasis/Moehler, T Bar/Snow, Garland 2/Sisk, Royal Oaks/Templeton, Oak Creek/Wei-Ben and  Greenhill/Parga.  Kanchi and Somabut should have the two best teams in 4.0 and they square off in the same flight. 

4.0 Flight BBrookhaven/Bartlett, Huffines/Ratcliffe, Canyon Creek/Nolen, Lifetime/Heflin, High Point/Gardner, SpringPark/Walters, Greenhill/Davalos, Oak Creek/Rich, McKinney/Jacobson and Lakes/Reifsnyder.  An unspectacular flight but two playoff contenders.

4.0 Flight C – Hackberry Creek/Myers, Stonebridge/Cummings, Stonebriar/Dickey, Fretz/Ward, McKinney/Oh, Greenhill/Ohl, Brookhaven/Tarangioli, Huffines/Jayaram, LB Houston/Montalvo and Canyon Creek/Patterson.  Don’t see a lot of playoff muscle in this flight but I’m picking anyway.

4.0 Flight D – Seay/Jacob, JCC/Schachter, Las Colinas/Otey, Greenhill/Alzuro, Garland 1/Sisk, Oak Creek/Iyer, McKinney/Bazan, LB Houston/Gordon and Gleneagles/Miller.  Well, we really ran out of steam after Flight A.  Flights C and D both just trailed off.

Last year’s playoff teams were, in order of finish: (QT) Oak Creek/Head, Oak Creek/Lai, Greenhill/Wendelken, Greenhill/Ohl, Oak Creek/Ramasami and Fretz/Noel; (city playoffs) High Point/Le, Oasis/Moehler, Oak Creek/Lai, Oak Creek/Head, Brookhaven/Bartlett and Garland/Sisk.  High Point/Le won the national title.

  1. Look out for Garland Sisk. Someone we all know and hate comes off suspended status and will play for big John most likely. With his one year layoff he will be rusty and go winless

    1. Why is that? He might lose himself to 4.0?

    2. If Sisk just moved his trilevel roster to 18's he wins. Not sure what's up there but Kelly been practicing w SP Aguilar team. He won't play for them still suspended but whoever in that flight better watch out. That team is solid. And the mighty Alzero can't be overlooked either with his 7.0 mixed dominance.

    1. C has nobody...interesting. Anyone know anything about the Spring Park team. Is this the same team as Alan and Kelly?

  3. "Hell would have to freeze over" before Kelley would get to 4.0!!!! Although I did text the devil and he said this year has been unseasonably cooler than the last 1000 years....hmmmm

  4. Trilevel national schedule out and Big John has to go thru Nocal and Middle eastern just like in 2013. Won't happen. They come away empty handed and a lot poorer. what a waste of time, money and effort!!

    ReplyDelete
  5. The Middle East sends a team now?

    Where does one see these schedules?

  6. Even when I merge teams I still get stuck in the toughest flight. Pretty amazing coincidence season after season.

    1. I see Rossouw gets an easy flight again. It pays to be a DTA sycophant.

    2. WTF is a sycophant?

    3. A suck up. There are online dictionaries.

    4. That describes Rossouw

  7. Yes, but no matter how many teams he puts together year after year after year, both in FW and Dallas he still comes up short. DTA gifting him the leagues and still he collapses. A blind nut funds a squirrel eventually.

    1. It's a blind squirrel finds a nut. Btw, he would never do it but if he put Kelley on the roster he goes to nationals. Don't play him just add him. Should get him over the hump.

    2. Like his chances better if he plays him. Sitting him and playing himself is why be hasn't been.

  8. you r kidding right???!! Rousow putting Kelly on the roster?? You are an idiot. Kelley would be elected DTA president before that happened. Or better yet Kelley and Tosha would play mixed together. AIN'T HAPPENIN!!

  9. SpringPark shows up when it matters and sweeps Brookhaven. Back to sectionals without the big three.

    1. Springpark looking like they might dominate.....Not sure there are any studs in singles anymore....maybe Shawn Foster?

  10. who is big three? fed, murray, nadal?

    In 40s 4.5 flight A, the 3 teams that missed playoffs at 5-3 would likely have won the other flight

    ReplyDelete
  11. Big 3 were the out of level women. Kathy Paxton, Danielle White and Renee Houk. They could win with any random men.
