My Updated Section 3A Seedings Outlook for this week.

Section 3A (10 Teams)
Team- (Overall Record)
1- Mankato East (14)- (11-5-0)
2- New Ulm- (12-5-0)
3- Luverne- (7-7-0)
4- Windom- (10-8-1)
5- Marshall- (9-9-0)
6- Worthington- (8-6-0)
7- Fairmont- (5-8-0)
8- Minnesota River- (3-12-1)
9- Mankato West- (5-11-0)
10- Redwood Valley-(2-13-0)

Section 3A Overview- Mankato East and New Ulm are the clear favorites here as they are both still undefeated in Section 3A and most likely will finish the year that way due to not playing head to head. Luverne owns the head to head win over Windom and the Eagles own the head to head win over Marshall and the Tigers own the head to head win over Worthington. Fairmont swept Minnesota River and the Bulldogs own the head to head win over Mankato West. Redwood Valley is solid at the bottom. Still plenty of second round conference matchups in the Big South and the Scarletts are the X factor at (0-3) in 3A and a terrible overall record how far they will fall in the seedings.

Section 3A Seeding Projection for the Week:

Section 3A (10 Teams)
Team- (Overall Record)
1- Mankato East (17)- (12-6-0)
2- New Ulm- (15-5-0)
3- Luverne- (8-9-0)
4- Marshall- (11-9-0)
5- Windom- (10-10-1)
6- Worthington- (8-8-0)
7- Fairmont- (5-12-0)
8- Minnesota River- (3-14-1)
9- Mankato West- (6-12-0)
10- Redwood Valley-(2-14-0)

Section 3A Overview- Mankato East & New Ulm are the clear 1 and 2 and I could see the Eagles getting the benefit in the coaches vote because they play all the Big South Schools. Luverne only has one Section 3A loss to NU at this point to stay at 3. Marshall won the crucial 2nd match up over Windom to move to 4. Worthington is stuck at 6 own a win over Fairmont who swept Minnesota River. Mankato West is (0-3-0) in their only 3A action and lost to the Bulldogs head to head and Redwood Valley continues to be at the bottom.

Section 3A Seeding Predictions Week #11

Section 3A (10 Teams)
Team- (Overall Record)
1- New Ulm- (17-6-0)
2- Mankato East (19)- (12-7-1)
3- Luverne- (10-9-0)
4- Marshall- (12-10-0)
5- Windom- (10-11-1)
6- Worthington- (9-10-0)
7- Fairmont- (6-13-0)
8- Minnesota River- (5-15-1)
9- Mankato West- (6-14-0)
10- Redwood Valley-(2-17-0)

Section 3A Overview- New Ulm & Mankato East are the clear 1 and 2 as both remain unbeaten in 3A play and I think the Eagles will get the nod in the coaches vote because they play all the Big South Schools and Cougars played only the Bulldogs. Luverne swept the Tigers to remain 3 seed. Marshall won the crucial 2nd match up over Windom to settle the 4/5 seeds. Worthington is at the 6 seed due to the head to head win over Fairmont who swept Minnesota River. Mankato West is (0-3-0) in their only 3A action and lost to the Bulldogs head to head and Redwood Valley continues to be at the bottom.

East had a bad week, tougher opponents than New Ulm had but a tie with the probable #8 seed in 1AA then getting put in running time by Mayo isn’t a good look.

I agree Mankato East did have the tougher schedule and I think their win over Hutchinson should carry weight. But its a coaches vote for seeding Mankato East and West coaches will be dealing with NINE BIg South Coaches. They have all seen and been beat by New Ulm only MN River has seen the Mankato Schools that may carry weight and how they vote.

I think the other wild card is I bet they don't put Mankato West at 9.... They did get beat by MN River and they are really down this year but I bet they end up with the 6 seed based on reputation and SOS. Worthington has given Austin its only win of the year... Again I hope not but i could see West at 6 or 7... Ultimately would be crazy to see a 3A Quarterfinal with East vs West when many though those two would walk through Section 3A when they got added last spring. Just some Random 3A thoughts.

And yes in this Secton the #1 seed is crucial if the MSHSL Website Bracket is correct 3A is not using any neutral site for the playoffs this year. Meaning the High seed will host even the Section Championship ?!?! Not sure if thats a typo from last year's COVID Structure but how its listed now so getting the #1 seed is even more crtitical in this section.

Historically (with the exception of last year), Gustavus Adolphus was was the site for 3A semi's and championship game. I've confirmed from a reliable source that Gustavus WILL NOT be hosting any of the games this year. It appears that the high seeds will be hosting all games.

Wanted to wait till after the 2nd Match up or Windom vs Worthington before posting my official Prediction for 3A Seeding later this week. Here is how I seed the Coaches vote going.

Final Section 3A Seeding Prediction-

Section 3A (10 Teams)
Team- (Overall Record)
1- New Ulm (20)- (18-6-0)
2- Mankato East- (12-10-1)
3- Luverne- (14-9-0)
4- Marshall- (13-11-0)
5- Worthington- (11-12-0)
6- Windom- (10-13-1)
7- Mankato West- (7-15-0)
8- Fairmont- (7-15-0)
9- Minnesota River- (5-17-1)
10- Redwood Valley-(2-19-0)

Section 3A Overview- New Ulm & Mankato East are the clear 1 and 2 as both remain unbeaten in 3A play and I think the Eagles will get the nod in the coaches vote because they play all the Big South Schools and Cougars played only the Bulldogs. Luverne has beaten everyone below them and are locked at the three seed. Marshall won the 2nd match up over Windom and they swept Worthington. The Trojans won the crucial 2nd game over the Eagles and swept Fairmont who Swept Minnesota River. Redwood Valley is at the bottom. The biggest question mark will be how far does Mankato West fall based on results they should be 9 as they lost head to head to the Bulldogs and were swept by the Cougars but I think Coaches reward their tougher Schedule and overlook the Bulldog loss and give them the 7 seed which would set up a juicy Crosstown 2 vs 7 Quarterfinal Game in Mankato.
