Not very complicated at the top of the top-10. 

Moorhead > Edina > OMG

After that, there are a lot of questions.

Who is better between Minnetonka and Rogers? Not sure.
What happened to Hermantown and Rochester?

 This past week was huge in SQA, as the big Squirtacular event made waves throughout the rankings. Congrats to Chaska and Chanhassen for winning the platinum championship by defeating our previous No. 1 Woodbury Black. The Stormhawks is our new No. 1 team. Grand Rapids is the lone unbeaten team at this level with over ten games played; the Thunderhawks get jolted up to No. 3. Moorhead Red goes from unranked to No. 4 in a week by finishing third in the Platinum A bracket at the Squirtacular.

Commentary

In SQB, a lot of teams are very close, so a disclaimer if your team didn’t get ranked means they were definitely considered. There were about ten more teams that deserved to be ranked this week. With that being said, we have a new No. 1 this week, and it’s Armstrong Cooper. That hockey program is crushing it at a lot of levels this season. Shoutout to the new No. 3 Woodbury Royal for beating the Jr. Coyotes in the Squirtacular Silver Championship. No. 5 Mahtomedi made a big jump this week as the Zephyrs knocked off previous No. 1 Duluth in the Squirtacular Blue Division championship. Rogers Black is new this week in the rankings as the Royals win the white division championship of the Squirtacular.

Minnetonka is the new No. 1 team in Junior Gold A; the Skippers defeated previous No. 1 Wayzata 3-2 this past week. No. 2 Wayzata had a win against No. 3 OMG this past week; both teams are of state championship caliber. Rosemount sneaks into the rankings this week at No. 4; the Irish defeated No. 3 OMG and No. 5 Edina, a really solid week for the Irish.

Commentary

Hill Murray had a very good weekend, knocking off a few ranked teams en route to a tournament championship. Hill Murray is currently 22-0-1 and is the No. 1 team in the state. There was some movement in the middle of the rankings as ranked teams lost to unranked teams and teams that did not lose moved up. No. 6 Edina White, No. 7 Buffalo, and No. 9 Shakopee Red all enter the top ten in JGB for the first time.
