East Nashville may be primed for a repeat.

When we took a look at the numbers in the Division I Small Schools girls division, the reigning champs look likely to repeat. It all starts with Jalena Curbeam. The senior sprinter is projected to score upwards of 40 points in five different events. She's the top returner in the pentathlon, triple jump and high jump.

Signal Mountain, led by UTC signee Mattie Parker, could also have a solid chance at the podium. 

It will be a battle of sprints and distance like last year. 

Here are the top ten teams in our preseason rankings based strictly on personal bests from last year.
