Defending Champion: Prairie Seeds Academy
- West Lutheran
- St. Croix Prep
Sleeper: Metro Tech Academy. Metro Tech is new on the scene but as a city school and with a couple of players from Prairie Seeds I think they can play with many in the section. Their schedule of only 3 home games along with games at Minnetonka and Wayzata means they will take their lumps. They'll get voted down in the seeding meeting but are a top candidate to pull at least 1 upset (at least in terms of seed). They're as good a candidate as anybody to be that 5th best team.
Section Winner: Maranatha. The Mustangs return plenty of experience and have tons of firepower. Add in the best player in the section in Isaiah Hanson. That's enough to be picked at the top.
