Based on this year's Class S results it looks like Gilbert is a strong favorite to win Class S.
They lead the division with six returning State Placewinners: 120-2nd; 138-4th; 145-5th; 160-6th; 170-2nd; and 182-6th. Windham looks like they will likely come in second place with four returning state placewinners and, in light of their track record for reloading, will have additional placewinners as well: 106-2nd 120-3rd 132-4th 145-3rd. Nonnewaug looks like they should come in third place with four returning state placers: 113-5th 160-3rd 170-3rd 182-3rd. Are there other teams who could take a top 3 spot without a leading number of returning placewinners?
