2021 ND High School Volleyball Season Preview

After the 2020 season brought us a double dose of perfection, I’m curious what 2021 has in store. Bismarck Century enters the year on a 22-match win streak after winning its fifth title in six years. Linton-HMB finished off a perfect season by sweeping Langdon-Edmore-Munich for the state championship last fall. I see those two programs being the favorites again in their respective classes, but you know the rest of the contenders will be hunting for those upsets throughout the year.

2021 SD Class 11AAA Football Season Preview

The state’s largest class is now made up of Sioux Falls area teams and Rapid City teams only. Eight of their nine games will be in class and each team will get one 11AA opponent. A Sioux Falls public school won 12 straight championships in the largest class up until 2018. Since then a non-Sioux Falls public school has taken home the hardware. This year the Sioux Falls public schools added another team with Jefferson which may make it more difficult for a Sioux Falls school to get it done.

2021 ND Class 11AA Football Season Preview

From sixteen teams to ten. That’s the change taking place at the division featuring the biggest enrollments in North Dakota high school football. As if that change isn’t enough, there will be an imbalance in the class with six teams from the western side of the state and only four from the east. Sheyenne and Century alone graduated some tremendous talent from their rosters that helped them reach the Dakota Bowl last fall. But those programs have proven they can reload year in and year out. Take a look at my preview that includes top teams and players in the 11AA division.

2021 SD High School 11AA Football Season Preview

Pierre has done the unthinkable by winning four straight championships in class 11AA. Each season has been unique as to how close they were to the rest of the competition. This season promises to be one of the closest races in recent years. Several teams whether they’re in my top five or not have a shot to get to the dome.
