Pequot Lakes ran away with the Mid-State Conference last year.  Will that change in 2021-22?  Today we have a look. 

 

Conference Commentary

Top Contenders: Pequot Lakes, Detroit Lakes, Crosby-Ironton

Pequot Lakes is the pick to win this league, they are the pick to win 7AA this year, and they will enter the season as a top ten squad in Class AA.  With one of the elite juniors of Class AA in Eli Laposky Eli Laposky 6'1" | SG Pequot Lakes | 2023 State MN and a developing big in Sam Rysvay at 6’6/6’7 they have the pillars for success.  That’s two key starters and several of their bench players back for a run.  Next up is likely Detroit Lakes.  With a couple all league players back, a big to handle the double-doubles and a senior ball handler, DL will be solid.  They will need to be more consistent putting points on the board though to overtake Pequot Lakes. This is the year that Crosby-Ironton makes their biggest push of the last handful of years and they could potentially overtake PL if things break correctly.  Last year’s game wasn’t close but the gap will have closed some, but how much?
