Favorites: GMLOS Bulldogs and Chatfield Gophers
Dark Horses: Dover-Eyota Eagles and Zumbrota-Mazeppa Cougars
The Bulldogs of GMLOS look to be a big favorite as they have everyone back from their 23-5 dual meet campaign. No one graduated from their team; they have ten section placewinners, including eight state qualifiers, of which three were state placewinners. They will have 13 others back with a wide range of experience. Look for the Bulldogs to continue to build on their state tourney experience, where they did drop a pair of very close duals. If they continue to improve through the course of the season, they could be a challenge for anyone in Class A. Their key leaders should include Anthony Romero (44-4) 2nd State, Noah Sayles (43-6) 5th State, Cameron Sneed (33-12) 2nd Section, Rece Voigt (41-11) 2nd Section, Daniel Smith (20-8) 6th State, Donavon Felten (41-9) 3rd Section, Christian Jacobsen (42-7) 3rd Section, Lucas Winfield (29-18) 2nd Section, Cohen Wiste (39-6) 2nd Section, and James Jacobson (22-23) 2nd Section.
