Just got the Super 16 seedings courtesy of Tom Josephson, who runs the computer at the tournament.
The first thing I noticed was a couple of Fox Lane names missing. Before I call Joe Amuso, can anyone tell me where Luke Speno and Steven Rodrigues will be this weekend?
As far as those who will be there, 125 looks great with Justis Flamio and Mike Rose at the top. Even Jay Concepcion was runner-up at Shoreline and makes a strong No. 3 seed.
UPDATE 1: Spoke to Joe Amuso about Rodrigues and Speno. He said both guys are nursing injuries and he doesn’t want to take a chance by sending them out this weekend. And he agreed that losing two huge point scorers tightens the field considerably. I also spoke to Ardsley’s Craig Zern, whose team has been given hope. With two No. 1 seeds and two No. 2 seeds and two fewer Fox Lane studs to contend with, Ardsley could strike a blow for small schools everywhere.
UPDATE 2: A few changes were made in the seedings which have since been corrected. I have changed them below to reflect that. Throw another contender into the stacked 125 ring as Robert Martin moves up.
Here are the seeds.
