NOW Rankings picks the State Champions

In the year 2000...


When YHH built the computerized NOW Rankings formula two years ago, we had no idea how popular or how accurate it would be. We knew our readers wanted a one-stop shop to see scores of their opponents, rivals, etc. Last year, the #1 ranked NOW team won seven of the 10 state or equivalent year-end tournaments. This year looking at the top ranked NOW teams, the computer has a great chance to equal last year's number. Proving ultimately that the computer will replace man. Here are the number 1 ranked (or highest ranked) NOW teams heading into state next week. 

Level Site Champion
Bantam AA Rogers Eden Prairie
Bantam A Coon Rapids Edina
Bantam B Silver Bay Wayzata (Navy)
PeeWee AA Thief River Falls Edina
PeeWee A Crookston Spring Lake Park
PeeWee B Two Harbors Edina (White)
U12A Stillwater White Bear Lake
Squirt A* New Hope Osseo Maple Grove
Squirt B* St. Louis Park Osseo Maple Grove (Gold)
U10A* New Hope Edina Green
*Participant in Tournament of Champions

Edina's PWAA team looks to prove the Computer right next weekend in Thief River Falls.

Can Kyle Bouten and the Elk River Elks beat the computer win State in Rogers?
