Weekend Preview: Holiday Invitationals

Holiday invitationals are here! We have 3 big meets and South Suburban Conference Championships going on this weekend. Here’s what we can expect to see:

Frazee Invitational: The Fly Girls are hosting their first event, this one will be Friday night in the northland. What was probably going to be a small meet ended up attracting a ton of section 4A and 4AA teams to the night. No schedule posted. Should be a good check of where things stand for the northern sections heading into break.


Academy of Holy Angels Invitational: The holiday “winter jam” event is a fun one for AA fans as most of the heavy hitters from across the state make a showing. This year being so close to Christmas, there will be a few names missing from the mix, but still a fun one.  Cannon Falls and Sartell rematch in kick, and add Austin and St. Cloud Cathedral to the mix from last weekend.  A new squad from Pine City makes an appearance in jazz later in the afternoon.


Lake City Invitational:  The Tigers host a huge section 1A meet with all the big class A names from the region present.  A few AA should be there this year as well.  Lake City looks good in the kick side of things and Zumbrota Mazeppa will try to stay on top in jazz.  No schedule at the time of press.
