  5. New Ulm (6)
  6. St. James (5)

The Review

At the Top – Waseca and Marshall had very high expectations and they’ve come through with the Jays finishing the year second in Class AA and Marshall ranked 3rd in Class AAA.  Throw in St. Peter and Jackson County Central and you have some high level squads. 

The Surprise – Redwood Valley was better than I expected.  They were just a spot higher than I predicted but their 19-10 mark was much higher than most thought it would be.  Strong sophomore group. Fairmont also finished a spot better replacing several quality seniors and still going 17-10. 

What Happened? - Worthington wasn’t exactly expected to win the section or league but we certainly thought they would do better
