Class 1A

The Class 1A top 20 experienced just two changes as Blake remained No. 1 with 10 first place votes in the coach's poll. 

The Bears (22-2-1) finished their season with 14 consecutive wins and allowed more than one goal in just one of those games. Blake outscored their opponents 105-26 and outshot them 827-473.

The rest of the Class 1A top ten also remained unchanged with Breck, St. Paul United, Proctor/Hermantown and Warroad rounding out the top five. 

Delano/Rockford (21-4) had the second-most wins in Class 1A but finished one spot outside of the top five after facing just six currently-ranked opponents all season. 

Hutchinson (18-6) replaced Alexandria (12-12-1) in the No. 14 slot. The Tigers finished the season 11-2 in their last 13 games. Alexandria lost its five of its final six games and dropped to No. 15 in the Class 1A top twenty.
