Defending Class A Champion Minneota is on top after defeating some state ranked Class AAA teams in a tournament over the weekend. The Vikings only loss was to Northfield. Another Class AAA ranked team.
The Northfield Raiders jumped all the way to #2 in Class AAA and received a first place vote. Eagan is still #1 in Class AAA. Northfield jumped due to wins over Lakeville North and Wayzata. North Branch is now atop Class AA with Stewartville dropping to #2.
Medford is still ranked #4 in Class A, Mayer Lutheran is #3 and Waterville-Elysian-Morristown #5. Mabel-Canton is #6 and Caledonia #7. That means 5 of the top 7 teams in Class A are in the same Section 1A.
