I follow scores more than I watch games, but I'm assuming top 3 favorites: HCV, Thompson, Hatton-Northwood.

Definitely those three, and they all have tough competition scheduled.

Region 2's #5 seed this year was 15-5.

The #6 was ranked as high as 6th in the state poll.

I would expect a really balanced region on the top end next year.

I think it will be interesting to see if some of the teams that have traditionally been near the bottom during the last few seasons can make a leap in 2019-2020. North Border, D-V-E, Griggs and FSHP all should be quite a bit better. I think this could be the most balanced region 2 we have seen in quite some time.

I think HCV the absolute number 1 overall team in the state next year and the clear fav to win the Region. After that I could see any mix of teams but I think it will look something like this:

2. HN
3. Thompson
4. Cavalier

Gets a little muddy after that NB returns almost everyone and will be very competitive, Larimore and Grafton both lost a lot. MM also returns a lot.

PRFL MPCG and Griggs after that

FSHP and DVE somewhere near the bottom

I agree that HCV, Hatton, and Thompson are the top three pre-season but think that North Border will be that 4th team that surprises people who expect the usual suspects at the top. I think a few teams that have struggled recently will absolutely be improved. I look for DVE, North Border, and Griggs to all be better than people might be assuming. A complete ranking for me right now would look like this:

1. Hillsboro-CV
2. Hatton-Northwood - I only put them above Thompson because they replace a lot less than Thompson so will probably spend less time figuring it out early in the season
3. Thompson
4. North Border
5. Cavalier
6. Larimore
7. Midway-Minto
8. Mayport-CG
9. Griggs County
10 to 13. Total toss up really tough to say IMO so the final Grafton, DVE, Park River-FL, FSHP

I also think that anything from Larimore down you could pretty much pull names from a hat and have a chance of being just as right. It will all come down to who can stay healthy, who puts in the time in the off season, and who wins a couple tight region games. I foresee this being a top heavy region.
