Defending Champion: Holy Family

Predicted Seeding
  1. Waconia  
  2. Washburn 
  3. Holy Family
  4. Benilde-St. Margaret's
  5. Blake
  6. Holy Angels  
  7. Mound-Westonka
  8. Richfield
The bottom five teams in the section are all down.  Benilde-St. Margaret's, Blake and Holy Angels lose all of their top players.  Mound-Westonka and Richfield are in the midst of major rebuilds.  At the top, the Wright County looks to hold the top spot again.  The front line of Cole Peters and Oliver Smith vs Holy Family's Justin Dahl (UNI commit) makes for fun discussion.  Dahl needs somebody to score though, Jack Mugford's shooting will be critical.  Waconia loses a ton including forward Ryan Boll but they still have plenty coming back.  Washburn has some nice pieces to work with wings Evan Shephard and JoBreil Powell to go with PG Kevin Gleason.  However, I think you could say they've underachieved in both of head coach Jamin Cook's seasons. 

Sleeper: Benilde-St. Margaret's.  The Red Knights offensive system was very effective last season.  Junior wing Sam Baker should see a much expanded role this season.

Section Winner: Waconia.  Too much tradition and I think they match the size of Holy Family and are deeper.
