St. Croix Prep won the Skyline Conference last winter by two games.  They will enter as the favorite but remember Cristo Rey knocked them out in the playoffs.  

Conference Commentary

Top Ten in State – St. Croix Prep

The Lions return three starters from a team that beat Minneapolis North, beat Stewartville, and went undefeated in league play last season.  This is a team has won 37 of their last 41 games and has an all league candidate leading the way in Addison MetcalfAddisonMetcalf6'3" | SFSt. Croix Prep | 2021StateMN.  Should be another good year.  Not a 26-1 like last year as there is a ton of role players that must be found, but a good year again. 

Top Ten Potential - Cristo Rey Jesuit

The Pumas had a tough time outside of the league last year, but they were 10-4 in conference play,  Cristo Rey went 15-13 for the season, but come section play they gave St. Croix Prep their first loss of the season and were set to play for the section title.  Erick and Derek BurgessDerekBurgess6'4" | SGCristo Rey | 2021StateMN are returning starters and among the best players in the league.  The Pumas are certainly league title contenders.
