We start our final regular season rankings with a look at the 1A ranks and, not surprisingly, a very familiar name at the top!
- Mason City Newman
With the first postseason games coming up this week, No team is more locked in than the Newman Knights. Their first postseason game is against North Butler this Saturday at Newman Catholic High School.
- North Linn
The Lynx of North Linn once again come in at number two in our rankings. They will begin their playoff push this Saturday against Prince of Peace.
- Remsen St. Marys
The Hawks continue to impress and look to carry their success into the playoffs. Their first postseason game will be against Storm Lake St. Mary’s.
- St. Albert
The Falcons of St. Albert come in at #4 this week. In their first postseason matchup they will face the Essex Trojans.
The Trojans of Tri-Center have been one of the most surprising teams this season in Class 1A. Their season has been nothing short of superb. They just beat an excellent Class 2A Underwood team for the second time this season. They will look to continue their successful season this Saturday against IKM-Manning.
The Panthers of K-P will look again to make a run towards the State Tournament. Their first round opponent is the Warriors of Whiting.
Another team who has flown under the radar but looks to make some noise this postseason, the Cougars of CAM high school. Their first round matchup is against Griswold.
- Don Bosco
The Dons look to get battle tested this week as they face three excellent opponents before their first round matchup. They will take on Columbus Catholic, West Marshall and Dike-New Hartford in their final three regular season games. They will start the postseason against Central City this Saturday.
The Demons of Lamoni have made their first appearance in the Class 1A rankings at just the right time. Seniors Landon Gilliland and Jaiden Rivera have each had very successful seasons and look to continue it all the way to the State Tournament. In the first round of the playoffs they will take on Murray.
- New London
And the final team to wrap up our rankings is the New London Tigers. They will face either Moulton-Udell or Tri-County in their first-round matchup.
