40 total votes.

Before area school districts open their doors to students, the Section II sports season is getting in gear. Golf and tennis began their matches this week, and the first soccer and football games take place next week.

So as the Section II season begins, we're asking you which of these four defending champions have the best chance to win the title again this fall. Your choices are:

Bethlehem boys soccer -- The Eagles graduated their top two scorers and their starting goaltender from last year, but they have plenty of veterans.

Bethlehem boys volleyball -- The team is looking for its third straight Suburban Council and Class A Sectional titles with several returning players.

Guilderland girls soccer -- The Lady Dutch capped their meteoric rise to the top of the Section II world last year with their first Sectional title under head coach Curtis Snyder, but they graduated some key players from that team.

Shaker football -- Like Guilderland's girls soccer team, Shaker earned its first-ever Sectional title in football last season, but the Blue Bison also graduated a bunch of starters.

This poll will remain open until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, so you have some extra time to vote this time around. Thanks for participating in our poll.
