Predictions for D3 NE this year? Will the NESCAC continue to dominate? Very basically if you take away seniors on the top 6 teams not much changes. (I know this was calculated very inaccurately, but it was just to get a basic idea.) Tufts is basically returning everyone with almost everyone else losing two. MIT is hit real hard by graduation. That being said, this is from regionals and nationals was a whole other story.
With Schmidt gone it looks like individually itís going to be between Coby and Rand for the individual title. Not sure if anyone else has a shot, but you never know. NE should definitely get 3 at large bids for nationals though. My prediction is that itís the same 5 teams as last year, probably just switched up a bit depending on whoís on or off. Incoming freshmen could also make it interesting.
Based on regionals from last year, this is what itíll look like:
6. MIT n/a
1 Williams 88 7 10 22 23 26 40 50
Lose 3 and 6
New Score: 116
2 Middlebury 89 1 14 17 28 29 39 149
Lose 1 and 7
New Score: 127
3 Bowdoin 160 2 24 37 43 54 64 86
Lose 2 and 4
New Score: 243
4 Bates 161 18 20 34 42 47 55 108
New Score: 248
Lose 3 and 4
5 Tufts 175 3 30 35 44 63 71 80
New Score: 175
6 Mit 195 12 15 32 66 70 89 106
Lose1, 2, 4, and 6
New Score: n/a
Can anyone confirm or deny the rumor of inter-regional movement from the D3 XC thread? I believe the claim was that Amherst, Middlebury, and Williams are moving to the Atlantic region.
Williams' Schedule currently says that their regionals is at Westfield state...ergo they're still in NE. At least that's as much as I'd presume.
Is there a list of incoming freshmen anywhere?
|Does that mean..|
Does that mean Amherst is staying then but Westfield State and Smith are peacing out?
Above is correct; Amherst will be stayin in the NE Region but Westfield St. & Smith are heading to the Atlantic Region along with Williams & Middlebury for the 13' season
The new regions are all going to be named by color. I think the old New England region is going to be called the purple region, but like someone said, this isn't going to go into effect until 2013.
would think that Amherst might be able to challenge for a top 5 spot. Couple of their guys are coming off strong track seasons. They seem to be 1 guy away from really posing a threat. Anyone know what their recruiting class looks like?
Does anyone have info on recruiting classes? One or two good recruits could make the difference for a number of these teams.
Of course, high school success doesn't always translate to college success, especially in the first year i.e. Coby. As far as I can tell this year is going to be wide open teamwise with no clear favorites. Just as it seems to be every other year in NE...
