Pacific high school baseball, girls softball final Fine Fives for 2010

These shouldn't be easy to argue with, mostly based on Far East Tournament results:
1) Kubasaki, Okinawa. Imagine, getting a military police escort from the gate to the school and have the entire student body and faculty out to greet you and fete your first Far East title.
2) St. Mary's International, Japan. Next year, they'll get their chance at at Far East crown.
3) Kadena, Okinawa. They can win; just a matter now of believing they can beat Kubasaki when it counts.
4) Yokota, Japan. Didn't get a chance to play Zama American for third place at Far East, but held sway in the season series and finished first in DODEA Japan and Kanto regular season.
5) Zama American, Japan.
1) Kadena, Okinawa. Pitching depth, late Far East tournament batting burst too much for Far East field to handle.
2) Robert D. Edgren, Japan. Rode Kailee Redulla's rubber arm to the Far East final; simply didn't have enough gas left in tank to beat Kadena.
3) Kubasaki, Okinawa. Another team that learned it could win and played Kadena tough the last time they faced each other.
4) E.J. King, Japan. Not a bad perch for smallest DODEA Pacific high school in terms of enrollment.
5) Seoul American. Let's see how much better they'd do if they come to Kubasaki Spring Fling next April to get different competition than what they see in the regular season.
