1. Ready to defend

Defending champion Minneota's path to another Class 1A championship looks all too familiar. The No. 1-ranked Vikings (30-1) meet Red Lake 21-9 in the quarterfinals, an identical matchup from a year ago when they won by 20 points. If they reach the semifinals, the Vikings would face the winner of Heritage Christian (22-7) and Waterville-Elysian-Morristown (26-4). They defeated Heritage Christian 55-50 in the semifinals last year. Minneota returns junior Abby Hennen (18.1 points per game) and sister Morgan (13.1) from last year's starters. Minneota, making its eighth state tournament appearance in the past 10 years, also won a state title in 2013.
