With a deep returning lineup accustomed to winning, it was no surprise Eagan was picked as the unanimous preseason No. 1 team in Class 3A by the Minnesota Volleyball Coaches Association. After all, the Wildcats have advanced to four straight Class 3A state championship matches, winning three times—including the past two.
The Wildcats have done nothing to dispel the high expectations through the first two weeks of the regular season.
The question now is whether anyone can challenge Eagan's dominance. One of the top contenders hosts the Wildcats this Tuesday night, as Stillwater hopes to be the first to hang a loss on Eagan.
The matchup between these two Class 3A heavyweights makes a fine choice as MN Volleyball Hub's Top Game of the Week.
