3AA Outlook

Post by blueblood » Tue Sep 08, 2020 12:34 pm

Another interesting Section that, on paper, appears to wide open based on talent that has graduated or left for various reasons;

STA - defending section champ. Return dynamic player in Jackson Hallum. Big question at goalie and defense where they graduated 5 players.

Rosemount - Return Lewandowski up front, but have two key undergraduate losses in Strammel and Ratzlaff, plus D corp losses of Wheeler, Campbell and Horsager.

Burnsville - section finalist with a senior laden roster of 16 that will need to be replaced.

Eagan - new head coach and graduated 11 seniors, including the top 7 scorers from last season.

Eastview - graduated 11 seniors, including top 7 scorers from last season.

Will need to see a few games in the SSC and early season non-conference, before this gets section sorted out

Nice writeup. Agree wide open

Not entirely convinced Levandowski couldnt be an early depart at some point, Steel is a great program attraction, and several of their HS draft kids could conveivably go. Meanwhile, everyone protecting all options.
