#1 Detroit CC
On paper this is probably the least established DCC lineup since '09, but that won't stop the extremely deep Shamrock program form contending for its 5th title in 6 years.
They graduated one of the best classes in MHSAA history, but the Cardinals have a wealth of young talent waiting in the wings including some elite freshmen.
With 14 starters returning the Bulldogs look ready to make their return to team state and possibly push for a title against national powers DCC and Davison.
The Eagles were hit pretty hard by graduation, but they still have enough firepower to make a run and maintain their status as a perennial top-5 team in D1.
One of the state's hottest rising programs, the Bulldogs have won back-to-back regional titles and this year's team should be their best in over a decade.
As is seemingly the case every year, the Wildcats graduated a strong group of seniors but have maintained enough of their core to make a deep run.
The Rams have the horses necessary to be a top-5 team, but their success will hinge on how well they can fill out the vacancies left by graduation.
#8 Anchor Bay
After suffering minimal losses to graduation the Tars have a rock solid lineup with enough upside to push for a spot in the semis.
#9 Grand Haven
There's a number of holes that need to be filled, but the Bucs have the firepower necessary to be a top-10 team.
#10 Walled Lake Central
The Vikings have been trending upwards in a major way over the past few years, and it looks like this could very well be the year where they emerge as one of D1's top teams.
The Red Arrows were hit hard by graduation, but an influx of new talent to the lineup makes the defending champs a co-favorite to repeat.
#2 St Johns
After coming within a single point of winning their 5th consecutive title this past season, the Red Wings lose only two starters to graduation and have some newcomers that will make an immediate impact.
The Vikings have arrived in a major way over the past two seasons, and, barring injury, this year's squad should be the best in program history.
#4 Bay City Western
The Warriors proved they are legit last season, and despite substantial graduation losses they return enough talent to be a semis team.
The Blue Devils are coming off an impressive season and posses some top-notch firepower, but also have numerous holes to fill if they are going to win their first regional title since '06.
#6 Eaton Rapids
The back half of the D2 rankings are extremely wide open this year, and the Greyhounds return enough talent to make a run at the semis in what should be their best season since '09.
#7 Warren Lincoln
Injuries and extenuating circumstances derailed the Abes last season, but if they can get their best wrestlers on the mat this is another team capable of reaching the semis.
The Mustangs have brought in a lot of young talent over the few years and this year's lineup looks to be of regional championship caliber.
They made a terrific run and nearly upset St Johns in the semis last season, but they will need do to a lot of rebuilding from within in order to make up for heavy graduation losses.
#10 Byron Center
Graduation left a lot of question marks in the lineup, but the starters that remain are good enough to make the Bulldogs a top-10 team once again as long as they can get some support from the newcomers.
