Year to year the Central Lakes Conference always gives you something new.  Last year Alexandria won the league.  Here is this year’s preview.

 

Conference Commentary

Top Ten in State: Alexandria

The Cards made the state title game last year and return three of their top four scorers from a season ago.  Not only do they return talent, Alex has some really good players coming up through the program as well.  A top ten team in Class AAA for sure. 

Top Ten in State Potential: Fergus Falls

The Otters lose some headlining names but a couple starters return as does the bench.  The Otters will be a bit more balanced and still very good with a shot to make some noise in Class AA.

Compete with Most: Brainerd, Sartell, Sauk Rapids-Rice, St. Cloud Apollo

Brainerd may have trouble matching a 3-loss season but they won’t fall as far people think. Sauk Rapids-Rice is interesting.  They leaned on Ethan Opsahl Ethan Opsahl 6'4" | PF Sauk Rapids-Rice | 2021 State MN heavily, and he’s gone.  But everybody else on the team returns so they should be able to be a couple games over .500 again. Sartell lost more than Brainerd and Sauk Rapids-Rice but they have Mason Lund Mason Lund 6'6" | SF Sartell-St. Stephen | 2022 State MN
