Competition in OAA Red could be dead
The Wildcats will be placed in the OAA White, which should be a super-competitive division.
Perennial league power Rochester Adams likely will be the favorite, but the Highlanders should have plenty of competition with Southfield, Farmington, Farmington Hills Harrison and Southfield-Lathrup in the division.
Lathrup moved from the OAA Red.
Speaking of the OAA Red, this could be an ugly year competitive-wise. The divide between annual powers Clarkston and Lake Orion and the rest of the field may be bigger than ever.
Pontiac had a great year in the OAA Blue last year, but asking it to make the jump to the Red is a bit much. Rochester struggled in the OAA White last year, but moved to the Red because of its enrollment. Royal Oak hasn't won a game in two years. West Bloomfield, Troy and Troy Athens aren't pushovers, but they're not juggernauts either.
With all this in mind, it looks as if the OAA Red more than ever will be colored in Clarkston blue and yellow and Lake Orion green and white.
