Defending Champion: Hopkins
- St. Louis Park
- Minneapolis South
- Minneapolis Southwest
Sleeper: St. Louis Park. With a no-brainer favorite, picking a sleeper is a bit crazy but if I have to pick one its the Orioles. With Kashif Hayes running the dribble drive and another scorer in DJ Pollard on the wing they can be a handful to defend. The other Lake teams are dangerous but too much familiarity to pick Wayzata or Edina as a sleeper.
Section Winner: Minneapolis Southwest. Who else is there? Of course Hopkins is the pick here. As the preseason favorite to repeat anything less than a return to defend their crown would be a disappointment. Too much firepower at the guard slots, too well coached and their intensity is just at another level.
