Conference Preview

Teams

Chisago Lakes.  A very balanced team brings back many pieces.
Cloquet. Graduated a lot but they often recover well.
Duluth Denfeld. Had some under the radar talent that graduated.
Grand Rapids. Look like they are ready to reclaim their territory some.
Hermantown. The favorite again.  Thomas Madison is back with others.
North Branch.  Top players graduated after a tough season.
Princeton. Brady Peterson is really good and they played a lot this spring.
Hibbing. Graduated the top guys after a nine win season.

Thoughts

  1. Grand Rapids faced some tough times after Alex Illikainen left and when he was their hurt.  The Thunderhawks look a year ago but they got some nice young players once again.
  2. Hermantown lost Kole Z but Thomas Madison is good and there are good players coming back.  They are the pick to grab the W in this section.
  3. I've written off Cloquet a few times now and they still come back and have really nice seasons.  They graduated a lot of good players but can you really expect them to slip?  It's been expected and doesn't happen.
  4. Hibbing is a known name.  They had some good players
