Re: Turning Points

2004 class A semifinals. Breck vs. South St. Paul Private schools had begun taking over the class A tournament and a few other than Hill-Murray were starting to make noise in AA, fueling the dislike by the casual tourney go-er. Meanwhile the programs at the inner-city and first ring suburb schools t...

Re: Greatest Games That Never Were

If the one class tourney still existed-

2005 section 8 final between Warroad and Moorhead. They tied during the regular season and both went into state tournament ranked #1 in their class. They were far and away thought of as #1 & 2 overall throughout the regular season.

Re: Biggest Tourney upsets

That Lakeville South team had the best player in the state in Justin Kloos, after being upset in the section finals the year before Kloos unexpectedly returned to South for his senior season. South was a good team all year and Kloos was not going to be denied a trip to state, they rolled through se...

Re: Biggest Tourney upsets

2007 was a really weird year for big upsets. 3 seed Hill lost to Rochester Century. I was driving and listening on the radio. When Century scores the game winner the announcers were just screaming at the top of their lungs. You couldn’t tell what they were saying. Then the announcer did his best Mi...

Re: All Time All Tournament Team

Re: A Class All Tourney Team

If I remember right Jordan Schroeder from STA was an 8th grader and made the all-tourney team in 2005, the beginning of STA’s rise to power.

Anders Lee was also an 8th grader but I don’t think he made the all-tourney team.

Re: Greenway vs Mahtomedi

How was this crowd so pro- Greenway? I'd guess that under most opponents, Mahtomedi are the darlings, finally cruising to their first title, as it would be. Sure they're Metro, but they are the prototypical small school the two class format was made for. Has Mahtomedi born the brunt of the crowd li...

Re: Last 16 State Winners: Rank 'Em

The north suburbs were pretty dominant in the late 90's early 2000's. Much like how the west side is today. Anoka was runner-up to East in 98. They then gave way to the loaded Blaine teams (Hendricks, Bochenski, Frischmon, Foyt and company) in 1999-2000. While Elk River took 3rd in 99 (out of sectio...

Re: New Edina coach

How can a team with so much talent not compete well against the best teams? Time for a coach that can motivate and smile on occasion? Not sure how long he's been at Edina (early 2000's?) but since 2008 he's had the Hornets playing on semifinal Friday 7 times. At that point anybody can beat anybody....

Just 5 years ago STMA lost 15-0 in the section 7AA quarterfinals to Duluth East. It's amazing how quickly this program has become so competitive. I can't think of any other program that burst onto the scene in such a short period of time. Centennial in the early 2000's maybe? Congrats to the Knights.
