With the 2020-21 season still months out, it’s time to take a look at teams from all over the State of Hockey and examine what happened this past season and what’s ahead. The next team we’re breaking down is Mahtomedi.

How last season went

Though the Zephyrs didn’t have a state title to their name, they had established themselves in Class 1A in recent years as an annual contender for state champion. That was no different during the 2019-20 season.

It started with Mahtomedi rattling off seven wins in its first eight games of the season. The Zephyrs went on to compete for the Metro East Conference championship. They did so by winning games against Monticello, Alexandria, St. Thomas Academy and eventual Class 2A champion Hill-Murray.

Heading into Section 4A play, Mahtomedi rightfully earned the No. 1 seed with its 17-8 regular season record. The Zephyrs made their case in the regular season and postseason. In three section games, Mahtomedi won all three by a combined score of 14-2.

That performance only gave the Zephyrs the No. 4 seed in Class 1A as the field was loaded with talented programs such as Warroad, Hermantown and St. Cloud Cathedral.
