Predicted Seeding

  2. Osseo
  3. Centennial
  4. Mounds View
  5. Roseville
  6. Park Center
  7. Spring Lake Park
  8. Irondale
Champlin Park looks to hold on to their title with McKinley Wright and Theo John.  I think they plug in enough pieces to make it happen.  Osseo had a down year last year but they have a ton of guys coming back, I expect them to be more like their former identity.  Centennial is dangerous with South Dakota commit Tyler Peterson.  Mounds View and Roseville make up the next tier as they try to reload.  Park Center, Spring Lake Park and Irondale are all in rebuild mode.

Sleeper: Park Center.  New coach and young talent makes them a wildcard.

Section Winner: Champlin Park.  They have the 2 best players in the section.  There's just no matchup for Theo John.  I see them returning to the big dance.
