The pool of Massapequa, Minisink Valley and Sachem East is clearly the deepest and most competitive. If your eyes don't even acknowledge mat #1 each round then you are missing some top notch quality wrestling between three teams who are arguably the top three teams in Division 1.....arguably.
The pool of Spencerport, Fulton and Olean may come down to bonus points. Three full lineups equals three solid dual meets.
The pool of Hilton, Horseheads and Shenendehowa is intriguing beyond the actual dual meets. Individual matchups between ranked wrestlers adds some extra attention to this group.
The pool of Niagara Wheatfield, Chenango Forks and Fox Lane will be enjoyable to watch. Anytime you get a team coming off a low that feels they belong, a team coming off a high that most feel don't belong and a team that was here last year and knows they belong you are going to have fireworks.

|Cold Spring Harbor||8||Unseeded|
|Central Valley Academy||3||#6|
Most will assume the pool of Tioga, Seaford and ELSW will have a clear cut team that easily wins both duals. Let's not take away the that a competitive dual is in store in round 2.
The pool between Pleasantville, Mt. Sinai and Cold Spring Harbor has the defending NYS Team Champions and two teams making their NYS Duals debut. An upset of the defending champions may send the SRC arena in an uproar.
The pool between Peru, Central Valley and Canisteo Greenwood is a spitting image of the Division 1 pool of Massapequa, Minisink Valley and Sachem East. Smart coaching, jocking of lineups and some timely bonus points will be the difference in this pool.
The pool between Saranac, Warrensburg and Falconer seems like a two horse race. Two teams that had solid performances at the SRC last year and a team who just upset the #3 ranked team in division 2!
