The Hiawatha Valley Conference has come a long ways over the years.  Who is the best in the league in 2019-20?  Prep Hoops takes a closer look. 

Conference Commentary

State Championship Contenders:  Lake City

The Tigers are one of the top contenders for the Class AA state title.  Because Caledonia is in the same section one of these top 3-4 teams in the state may not even get to state but with the talent Lake City has, they could bring a state title home for the first time in 30 years. 

Potential Top Ten: Zumbrota-Mazeppa, Cannon Falls, Stewartville

If the Cougars can replace the depth behind their top two returning players, they could match their 17-9 record of a year ago.  Hutton and Cylkowski both averaged double digits and return. Cannon Falls lost two of three to the Cougars a year ago but they also bring back more from last year's team.  The teams had similar records (both had 17 wins). In Stewartville expectations are high with Will Tschetter being a top junior and Nolan Stier being a serious up and comer.  There are several young players that need to step forward. 

Compete with Most: Goodhue, Rochester Lourdes, Byron
