No. 1 Old Town/Orono reigns in Class B after defeating Greely in in the State Title game, 3-2. This team was built to win this year after making the Class B North regional final last year, losing to the eventual Class B State Champions Waterville.

No. 2 Greely was the preseason team to beat as they had most of their big horses back from last season. They are inching closer to the State Championship as they reached the regional final last season and now reached the state game this year.

No. 3 Cape Elizabeth fell in the South regional final to Greely. They are looking for their first Class B title since winning back-to-back titles since 2005-06.

Last year’s state runner up No. 4 York fell in the regional semifinals to Cape Elizabeth. After returning majority of their roster, they couldn’t defend their regional title this season, which just shows how deep Class B South is.

No. 5 Presque Isle got hot at the right time and reached the B North regional final. After a couple down years the Wildcats are looking to build off this year’s experience to return back to the regional final next year.

No. 6 Yarmouth started to find their groove late in the season, but fell to Greely in the regional semifinal. It’s been a pretty good few years for the program.

No. 7 Hampden Academy lost to Old Town/Orono in the North regional semifinals. Despite the early exit it was a strong season with 13 wins.

In their first year as a co-op arrangement between long-time rivals, No. 8 Waterville/Winslow reached the regional semifinals this year.

No. 9 Gorham reaches the ninth spot after a late run where they won seven of their nine last regular season games to earn the No. 5 seed in the Class B South playoffs where they fell to Yarmouth in the regional quarterfinal.

No. 10 Houlton/Hodgdon/Southern Aroostook/Katahdin reached the regional quarterfinals where they lost to Hampden Academy. The highlight of their season was upsetting Old Town/Orono in the regular season.
