2013-14 Section 7AAAA Preview

This is the 24th preview in my 2013-2014 season preview series.  The final week of previews winds down toward the end with a look at section 7AAAA.  For a list of all the season previews and how they are generated, click here.

Defending Champion: Andover

Predicted Seeding
  1. St. Francis
  2. Andover
  3. Forest Lake 
  4. Duluth East
  5. Cambridge-Isanti
  6. Blaine
  7. Coon Rapids
  8. Anoka
Jake Johnson leads the Saints to the top seed in another weak year in section 7.  The defending champs Andover return a ton led by football star Connor Wilkie and will be battle tested by the Northwest Suburban schedule.  Forest Lake and Duluth East both have to replace significant pieces, especially East.  Cambridge-Isanti has 3 top kids coming back including a pair of talented juniors (see Kyle McDonald).  Blaine, Coon Rapids and Anoka will struggle again.

Sleeper: Cambridge-Isanti.   They may be young and have taken some lumps but they will have experience and shooting.

Section Winner: Andover.  Another case where I don't want to pick the favorite.  I'll go with the defending champ with all the pieces they have coming back.
