While Blake hasn’t won a state title since its run of five-straight ended in 2014, the Bears remain in the mix of the state’s consistently good-and-often-great programs.
Blake’s Saturday loss to Prior Lake halted a two-game win streak to start the season but proves the No. 6 Bears (2-1) once again have the talent to compete with the state’s elite teams.
Benilde-St. Margaret’s (3-1) might just be the state’s best program never to have reached the state tournament. A 13-4 victory over No. 10 Breck on April 23 a week after a 9-8 loss to No. 3 Lakeville South indicate the No. 9 Red Knights, led by freshman Julia Evens’ 12 goals, might just end that drought this spring.
