2015-16 Section 3AAAA Preview

By TC Hoops Czar

This is the 21st preview in my 2015-2016 season preview series.  We continue our look at class AAAA with a look at section 3AAAA.  For a list of all the season previews and how they are generated, click here.

Section 3AAAA (8 teams)
Defending Champion: Apple Valley (defending state champion)

New teams in the subsection

  • Burnsville (2AAAA)
  • Hastings (1AAAA)

Teams that left the subsection

  • Cretin-Derham Hall (4AAAA)
  • East Ridge (4AAAA)

Predicted Seeding

  1. Apple Valley
  2. Eastview
  3. Burnsville
  4. Rosemount
  5. Hastings
  6. Eagan
  7. Henry Sibley
  8. Park

The 1 major competitor to Apple Valley for the section title (Cretin-Derham Hall) got moved to section 4.  I don t have any other team in the section picked above 5th in their league.  Most of this falls according to South Suburban finish.  Park clearly takes the 8 spot.  Eagan and Sibley fight for 6th.  Rosemount and Hastings battle for the last home game thanks to the South Suburban vs Metro East debate.  Eastview gets the 2 seed over Burnsville based on higher conference finish.

Sleeper: None.  The rest of the section is way down so there s nobody of note to pick here.

Section Winner: Park of Cottage Grove.  OK, maybe not.  With everybody back and the rest of the section down, there s no reason to believe that Apple Valley won t steamroll through this section with the possible exception of a rivalry matchup vs Eastview staying close.  It would not surprise me to see an Apple Valley game in this section go the stall route.
