    With most teams starting practice this week, I guess it's as good a time as any to start the discussion. Who will be the top teams this year? Hopefully, this can be more than a simple list of last year's champions or a boosting thread.

    In Peel, I know that D'Youville has a lot of key returning players and this year's grade 12s were dominant grade 10s as juniors two years ago. They are definitely the early favourites but, after that, it's up in the air. Are either of Ascension's double threats back? Will Campion continue their improvement? Same for Applewood? Is Coach Maxim back with Goetz? Can carmel build upon last year's surprising run?

    In Toronto Catholic, I hear that it will once again be a two team race, with Pope John Paul in the east and Michael Power in the west.

    Will Eastern return many players in Toronto Public? Are Richview and Silverthorn the teams to beat in Toronto West?

    Who are the powers this year in York? Will Sinclair and Leo Austin continue their recent dominance of Durham, along with newcomers Notre Dame?

    In halton, will the Burlington schools dominate?

    I plan to release a Pre-Season Super 16 sometime next week and no later than Monday September 21st. Anyone interested in helping out, please send me an email at info@hooptowngta.com

    Here are a few teams that I think will land some where in the Super 16 or honourable mentions:

    Durham: Austin, Notre Dame (Ajax), Pickering, Sinclair

    Toronto: Birchmount Park, Eastern Commerce, Etobicoke, Lawrence Park, Richview, Silverthorn, York Memorial

    Toronto Catholic: Michael Power, Pope John Paul

    Peel: Campion, d'Youville, Mount Carmel, St. Thomas Aquinas

    York: Bill Crothers, Markham

    Halton: Notre Dame (Burl)

    This is just off the top of my head. I will be contacting the coaches this week to see who they have back.

    Funny that you mention Marcellinus, Coach. You're the third person in the past week I've heard (or read) mention them as a dark horse. Sounds like they might be quietly building a solid program.

    Marcellinus had a great junior team last year (peel champions), most of the girls are going senior this year.....I think that's why they are considered a dark horse

    LaydeeGatorsz, do you think your team will be able to bang with St. Marcellinus, d'Youville, or Campion this year?
