Two of the state’s best teams


This week I saw two of the state’s top 4A teams in the state. Each team, representing the girls and boys

respectively, showed why they are among the state’s best.


Tuesday January 17, 2012

Bloomington Kennedy, the No. 4-ranked Class 4A team in the state, scored a 72-49 victory over Prior Lake. The Eagles, who won the state title in 2005 and finished runner-up in 2006, are led by JADE MARTIN (15.2 points per game), HEATHER BACHMAN (11.6), MICAELA MERIDETH (10.9), KENISHA BELL (10.8), and TONOIA WADE (10.2).


Friday-Saturday, January 20-21, 2012

Hopkins defeated St. Paul Johnson (99-83) and Milwaukee Riverside (91-58) in the Eastside Showcase. The Royals, ranked No. 2 in Class 4A, have used a balanced attack led by ZACH STAHL (20.0),




Hopkins has captured the last three 4A state crowns.
