Regional Final Predictions For 2019

By Craig Peterson, 02/22/19, 2:15PM EST


Three Teams From Every Section With A Shot At A Championship

The 2019 MI-HS state playoffs are scheduled to begin next week, with 138 high school programs set to chase the ultimate dream of a state championship. Games get started on Monday, February 25th, and by the end of the week, the pool will be whittled down to just eight schools remaining in each division.

With that, I’ve got a case as to how 72 teams — yes, over half the field! —  have a shot at winning their respective sectional. I know it’s long and you really only care about YOUR region, but let’s take a closer look at three teams in each region with a chance to survive the first week of the tournament breaking them down into three categories:

The Favorite. The front-runners, the top seeds, the class of the region who just needs to take care of business.

Under The Radar. They’ve got a chance, a real good chance and nobody's talking about them.

The Dark Horse. It’s a longshot, but they can make some noise if all goes right and they play their best hockey.

Check out the three divisions below for complete Regional Final Previews.
