More fun with Holy Family Seeding

Last year was a difficult season to seed Richfield and Holy Family in section 6AAA.  Holy Family was 18-8 but got the #5 seed and had to play at 12-14 Richfield in the first round.  Richfield ended up winning that game (read my thoughts here).  That's how I would have seeded it at the time.  Well it looks like the debate for that last home game may happen again with BSM, Washburn and Waconia being the likely top 3 seeds in that section.  Here's a look at both teams so far this season.
