In the final poll of the season, the margins of Madison West and Monona Grove‘s leads have remained virtually unchanged. Following the weekend of sectional meets, Madison West‘s points went down by 6, while Monona Grove went up by 7.

The sectionals are the big news from last week, and here is a list of the sectional team champions:

Division 1

Division 2

Madison West cruised to wins in 6 of 12 events at their sectional, but only managed to hold of Middleton by 35 points. Middleton, ranked 6th in this round of polling, had 3 event wins and was backed up by a plethora of top 8 finishes.

Meanwhile, Monona Grove won a whopping 8 of 12 events at their sectional, including all 3 relays. Their swims were noticeably off their seed times however, pointing towards the idea that they didn’t rest for the meet.

The results from all the sectionals can be found at here. (Under “Tournament Information”, click the “Sectionals” tab, and all the results links will be there.)

The Division 2 state meet has been scored out based on the psych sheet, resulting in the following top 10:

  1. Monona Grove – 299
  2. Madison Edgewood – 177
  3. Ashwaubenon – 164
  4. Elkhorn – 150.5

  6. Plymouth – 132

  8. Baraboo – 120
  9. Brown Deer – 107
  10. Fort Atkinson – 83
