Class 3 Area District Projections

District 4

  1. Whitfield (12-8)

  2. Hancock (14-3)

  3. Valley Park (11-5)

  4. Herculaneum (8-9)

  5. Kennedy (7-13)

  6. Principia (4-10)

  7. DuBourg (4-13)

  8. Bayless (1-13)

Despite having the third best record in the group, Whitfield as always has a strong schedule and it would take a lot for them to lose the 1 seed at this rate. Hancock and Valley Park have produced their best seasons in a long time and are battling for the 2 seed.  The rest of the teams have found it hard to get wins as of late.

District 5

  1. Cardinal Ritter (14-5)

  2. Maplewood (8-9)

  3. Carnahan (9-10)

  4. Brentwood (8-8)

  5. Roosevelt (5-11)

  6. Lift for Life (6-12)

  7. Gateway Science Academy (6-11)

  8. Cleveland NJROTC (2-8)

  9. Metro (3-15)

Cardinal Ritter has locked up the 1 seed for all intents and purposes with the fine season they are having, including a tough schedule. Maplewood is coming on strong after a slow start to the season. Carnahan and Brentwood could throw in a surprise or two going down the stretch.

District 6

  1. Northwest Academy (11-6)

  2. Duchesne (13-7)

  3. Trinity (12-5)

  4. North Tech (10-6)

  5. Lutheran North (9-9)

  6. Orchard Farm (11-7)

  7. McCluer South-Berkeley (7-9)

  8. Sumner (5-7)

Definitely the most intruging district out of this lot. You might be wondering why Trinity isn't at the top, but it's because Duchesne has beaten them twice. Northwest Academy has played a tough schedule and their record has held up well. At the moment they should scrap by the Pioneers for the 1 seed. Lutheran North has played a tough schedule with the young team they have, but North Tech's record speaks slightly louder at the moment and their schedule isn't better but good enough.

 

Class 4 Area District Projections

District 3

  1. St. Mary's (16-3)

  2. Gateway STEM (8-4)

  3. Confluence (11-9)

  4. Affton (11-6)

  5. Lutheran South (9-8)

  6. Windsor (8-9)

The 1 seed has been locked up by St. Mary's since right after the Holidays. This is a district where teams 2-6 could beat each other if it's their night. The seeds 2-5 could change drastically over the next several weeks. Affton has done surprisingly well this season, but their schedule isn't great and Lutheran South doesn't have a signature win that can boost them on credibility.

District 4

  1. Vashon (14-2)

  2. Miller Career (12-5)

  3. Soldan (11-5)

  4. Clayton (7-9)

  5. University City (7-11)

  6. Normandy (5-10)

Same with District 3, Vashon will be the 1 seed and the favorite to win state in Class 4 as well. Miller Career and Soldan are battling it out for the 2 seed. Clayton and U City has some nice pieces when things are going their way and the tide could turn for them, but hard to see either one get into the upper-tier of the seedings.

District 5

  1. Parkway Central (10-7)

  2. MICDS (11-8)

  3. Westminster (12-5)

  4. Priory (12-4)

  5. John Burroughs (6-10)

  6. Parkway North (1-16)

Perhaps the most compelling area Class 4 district. MICDS was on a roll until they lost three straight at an out of town tournament, but have beaten Westminster and Burroughs. On the other hand, Parkway Central has played a tougher schedule. You look at Westminster and they've been hot as of late, but a loss to MICDS downgrades their seed. Priory has a nice record, but the strength of schedule isn't there.

District 6

  1. Parkway West (13-4)

  2. Pacific (11-6)

  3. Borgia (11-7)

  4. Sullivan (11-6) 

  5. Union (7-10)

  6. St. Clair (7-10)

Parkways West is looking good as the 1 seed, but it isn't secure by any means. Borgia started the season out at 2-6, but have won nine out of their last 10 and surging. We could have a really competitive semifinal round, especially Borgia versus Pacific at 2 v. 3.

District 7

  1. Jennings (17-3)

  2. McCluer (11-7)

  3. St. Charles (12-7)

  4. St. Charles West (7-10)

  5. Fort Zumwalt East (6-12)

  6. Riverview Gardens (4-13)

Jennings is very close to having this district sealed up, but McCluer and St. Charles will have something to say about that. They don't have a better record, but the Comets has a harder schedule and if they're record doesn't falter too much then I think the seeding committee will give them the nod over St. Charles.
