The opening week of the MIAA state tournament delivered some jaw-dropping upsets, including the ousting of the defending D2 and D3 state champions.
The Division 1, 2 and 3 tournaments are all close to narrowing their respective fields down to eight teams, while the smaller divisions are a little behind that schedule. All five state champions in Massachusetts will be crowned on Saturday, June 18 -- with three games scheduled to be played at LeLacheur Park in Lowell and two more at Fitton Field at Holy Cross.
Today, we'll look at the D1, D2 and D3 state championship pictures, and we'll follow up with D4 and D5 tomorrow.
Here's a look at top individual performers, biggest upsets and predictions for MIAA's D1, D2 and D3 tournaments.
