After a non-traditional season in 2021, the 2021-22 campaign is highly anticipated as it will be back to "normal" for just about everyone across the state.  The Mt Hood Conference will once again be stacked at the top in the race for the league title. Here’s how we see it shaking out.

Analysis

Even though they lose a starter to the Ivy League in Darius Gakwasi (19.2 ppg, 6 rpg) and another to a move back to California in Malik Rose Malik Rose 5'8" | PG Central Catholic | 2022 (13 ppg, 5 apg), Central Catholic still has plenty back to capture the Mt Hood Conference title. It’s kind of an embarrassment of riches for head coach
