Sleeper: Hill-Murray. I totally missed on Hill-Murray last year picking them 5th in league (went 16-0). Nobody in the section has a matchup for center Dave Simmet. Their 2-3 zone gives people fits and Dick Ghizoni is a very underrated coach. Beating good Tartan teams 4 straight times isn't to be ignored. Side Note: Johnson has knocked Hill-Murray out of the playoffs the last 4 years but at least 2 of those have been very good games. Could very likely happen again this season.
Section Winner: St. Paul Johnson. They've been there and done that with 3 straight titles. I think they're too athletic for the rest of the section.
