It’s on to the new state-wide MIAA Division I tournament after the regular season was completed Thursday.

The new format promises to be intriguing at the least, and with the parity we have seen at the D1 level this winter, probably very competitive. Several coaches have remarked that there are numerous teams capable of winning it all.

St. John’s Prep (17-3-0) will enter the post-season as the #1 team in our final regular season HNIB News Massachusetts Division 1 Top 20. The Eagles had wins over Masconomet and Bridgewater-Raynham in the final week.

#2 Hingham (18-3-1) is fresh off an impressive run at the Buddy Ferreira Classic where the Harbormen took the title Thursday with a 6-1 win over #5 Austin Prep (16-3-2).

#3 Xaverian (16-3-1), idle this week, will be a handful for anybody in the post-season.

Same goes for new #4 Belmont (17-1-3). The Marauders take a backseat to no one in this field.

Keep an eye on #6 Pope Francis (12-5-2) as well. And #7 Arlington (16-4-2) looked to get back on track Wednesday with a solid 4-0 win over Malden Catholic.

Catholic Memorial (14-5-1) is down to #8 after dropping three straight games, but the Knights will be ready for tournament play.

#9 Braintree (15-3-2), #10 Marshfield (15-5-2), #11 Wellesley (12-2-6) and #12 Reading (11-9-2) all are capable of making long tournament runs.

A couple of teams entering the tournament on a hot streak are #14 St. Mary’s and #20 Milton.
