We’ve previewed the 2014 state tournament teams from Class 6A and Class 5A. This week, it’s Class 4A’s turn and it’s a group led by defending state champion Becker. The Bulldogs were somewhat of a surprise to win the Prep Bowl last year after Hutchinson had won state championships the two years prior.
A high school hockey game became the site of a bench-clearing brawl Thursday night. Video of the fight at the end of the section playoff game between Bloomington-Jefferson and Holy Angels was posted on Twitter.
A battle of conference unbeatens and two top 10 teams in boys basketball takes place Friday night in Minneapolis as DeLaSalle hosts St. Croix Lutheran in Tri-Metro Conference action.

It’s a big time for high school sports all across the state as we close January. Regular seasons are coming to the back stretch in basketball, hockey and wrestling, which means the postseason is just around the corner. Conference races are taking shape, and every game seems to mean more as teams push for their league titles and home playoff games.
even state champions were crowned last weekend as the Minnesota State High School League hosted its final Prep Bowl at the Metrodome. For seven teams, getting to hoist a championship trophy last weekend made the extra weightlifting and work over the summer worth it. Over the course of 13 or 14 weeks, teammates became best friends as they all drove toward a common goal: Getting to the Metrodome for the Prep Bowl and winning it.
It’s what every kid who has ever put on a football uniform dreams of: Playing at the Metrodome the weekend after Thanksgiving for a state championship. Between Friday and Saturday, 14 teams will play for titles and seven will finish their seasons as state champions.
The match-ups are set for the Prep Bowl, where high school football teams leave the Metrodome as state champions or get so close and have it go wrong in one game. Now all high school football fans can do is wait a week as state championship games in all seven classes will be played the Friday or Saturday after Thanksgiving.
The Holy Angels football team has had their fair share of surprises this season. The Stars went just 3-and-5 on the regular season, lost their starting quarterback before last week’s game against Kasson-Mantorville and then they found a worthy back up who hardly had taken a snap.
There are 28 teams left in the state that still have a chance to be hoisting a state championship trophy the weekend after Thanksgiving. But half of those teams will leave the Metrodome heartbroken by the time the weekend is over.
For as many as 21 Minnesota football teams, they’ve been practicing for two full weeks now, and all that hard work will be on display Friday night. It’s “Zero Week” in prep football around the state, meaning that high school football is already kicking off officially.
I’m confident the following is true. Steve Maher’s summer > your summer. Before you angrily start over-sharing your Instagram lake pics en masse, here’s why. The All-American pitcher from Division-III St. Thomas is playing America’s pastime – every – single – day in the Northwoods League with the Waterloo Bucks (seriously, like some 75 games in 70 days).
Who are the state’s top programs?
