08-09 Section 4AAAA Preview

Defending Champion: Henry Sibley

Predicted Seeding:

  1. Henry Sibley
  2. Cretin-Derham Hall
  3. Tartan
  4. Stillwater
  5. Woodbury
  6. St. Paul Central
  7. White Bear Lake
  8. North (St. Paul)
Sibley returns a loaded team so they're the obvious favorite. Seeing Seantrel Henderson of CDH against those bigs in a section final would be entertaining. One thing that CDH always seems to have are shooters and that's exactly what you need against Sibley. Tartan returns dangerous perimeter play and Marc Sonnen is the type of scorer who can carry a team on his back in a big game. Not to mention they'll always be tough defensively. Don't expect another stretch of 1 FG in 20 minutes in the tournament this year. Stillwater will be a tough out, but they're a year away. Seeing a rematch of last year's 1st round Woodbury upset over Stillwater would be interesting. Woodbury's running game is enough to pull an upset if Nick Quicksell and Bo Schiffler get hot.

Section Winner: Henry Sibley
