Salt River will not be good this year. They werent even good last year and they loose their ACE! I think VL will be the best team in 1a considering they should've beaten VU(last years champs) last season in the playoffs. This team returns 7 out of the 9 starters. They are gonna be hungry after the potential they showed in the playoffs last year. They were young last year with a sophomore starting infield. They have some experience now and should be locking things down on D. Look for VL to really make some noise in the playoffs this year.
