That's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks. I welcome any other input. The reason I ask these questions is because I am always searching for ideas and philosophies that make programs successful.

What happens if you attend a school that doesn't have a sport you want to participate in and isn't co-oped with another school for that sport? If it was that important, wouldn't you open enroll or move to a community that has the sport? We lived the exact situation mentioned above. I contacted the ...

Depends on how you define things Eden Prairie and Wayzata are both huge teams so they put up some big checks just by the sheer size, Eden Prairie is probably more noticeable since they are a faster team along with their size. Such as Johannes , Sullivan and Blackowiac On the other hand, if you go b...

Who Are the Most Physical Teams A or AA at the X? (Bangers)

I am curious to hear who you all think are the real physical mean and nasty teams at the Excel this year. I thought that St. Cloud Cathedral played some very physical hard hitting hockey this season when I saw them. I did see the Spuds, Hill Murray and Roseau play this season but I would only consid...

No advantage to either.

EGF 5-0.

I have to agree here with an EGF win. Heck the Otters put a 3-0
win on the Warriors in Warroad earlier in the year however ''tis the season for upsets" hence
the Cake Eaters were sent home with no desert last evening.

Not sure how FF could leap LF having lost to them twice. I didn't see that Fergus had lost to them TWICE. I thought their Alex win would carry them over ONE loss to LF. But being as they lost twice to them, then yes I would say they're at the 5 then. Not that it really matters, they are probably de...

Far as I can see making St. Cloud camp as a 15 is your best shot at learning. The rest is a showcase. I was just thinking why they didn't run each level like they do the 15s.
