09-10 Section 4AAA Preview

This is the 17th preview in my season preview series. In this edition, a look at section 4AAA. If you missed any of the previews, you can find links to all of them on the Section & Conference Previews page.

Defending Champion: St. Paul Johnson

Predicted Seeding:
  1. St. Paul Johnson
  2. St. Thomas Academy
  3. Hill-Murray
  4. Mahtomedi
  5. Highland Park
  6. Harding
  7. South St. Paul
  8. East Ridge
Section Winner: Johnson. They still have all the athletes and Estan Tyler gives them enough punch. St. Thomas Academy is down and Hill-Murray would be too big a jump. The rest of the section is dismal, especially the bottom with Harding, SSP and East Ridge. Even my 3 seed Hill-Murray finished last year 3-14 with all 3 wins being against really bad teams. Section final with Johnson and St. Thomas should be a defensive struggle. I would have moved South St. Paul up but with coach Getzlaff now coaching at Concordia-St. Paul, expect more of the same struggles.
