It's been three years since no large school has made the state semifinals, so we've got quite a bit of time to debate who will finish No. 1 in The News poll.
The three teams which ostensibly have any sort of claim on the top spot are Section VI AA champion Clarence, Section VI A champion Sweet Home and Monsignor Martin Association League AA champion St. Joe's.
Research material: Here is the previous poll (taken after the Section VI championships but before the Msgr. Martin finals and Far West Regionals), my How The News voted blog post regarding that poll, as well as the Prep Talk Live page (where you can read stories and watch highlights the postseason games which are a big part.
The final poll will appear in our All-Western New York issue.
Let us know what you why you voted the way you did in the comments section, or visit Wednesday night's live chat at 8:30 p.m.
