Girls Season Review

It was a great season. For several years now the Class of 2013 has been regarded as one of Minnesota's better classes: Nia Coffey, Rebekah Dahlman, Jessica January, Tyseanna Johnson, Jade Martin, Allina Starr, Savanna Trapp....

And then, as if to erase any doubt, came one of the best and most dramatic state tournaments ever. Surely one of the best and most dramatic Class AA tournament ever, though of course it was in AA that Brittney Chambers and Kamille Wahlin went at it in a similar match-up to the Dahlman-Carlie Wagner match-up in this year's final. Only this year's was better and more dramatic.

Top 50 Teams

Class AAA--DeLaSalle, Richfield, Fergus Falls
Class AA--NRHEG, Braham, Providence
Class A--Minneota, Bethlehem Academy; Maranatha Christian and Mountain Iron-Buhl (3rd tie)

Overall regardless of class

1. Hopkins
2. Bloomington Kennedy--knocked out by Hopkins
3. Eastview--knocked out by kennedy
4. DeLaSalle (3A)
5. Minnetonka--knocked out by Hopkins
6. Richfield (3A)
7. Edina--knocked out by Kennedy
8. Osseo--knocked out by Hopkins
9. Roseville--knocked out by Osseo
10. St. Paul Central--knocked out by Osseo

11. New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva (2A)

I had a hard time with the 2A teams. Providence beat DeLaSalle. If they had won 2A I probably have them #5. But I cannot picture NRHEG beating DeLaSalle or Richfield or Minnetonka or Osseo. Of course, they had 2 starters out Friday and Saturday, so who knows. I do know that they beat Braham who beat Providence who beat DeLaSalle.

12. St. Michael-Albertville--knocked out by Hopkins
13. Braham (2A)
14. Fergus Falls (3A)
15. Providence (2A)
16. Chaska (3A)
17. Park--knocked out by Eastview
18. Red Wing (3A)
19. Monticello (3A)--beat both St. Michael and Fergus
20. Anoka--knocked out by Kennedy
