It’s hard to believe, but the 2020 MHSAA postseason is just about a week away from getting started.

The 2020 season has certainly posed new challenges, but thankfully teams around the state have been able to navigate it and get to this point.

Each of the four divisions have some clearly established top contenders to win the state title, but are there some teams being overlooked?

Here’s a team in each division that may surprise some with a run to Battle Creek.

Division 1 – Novi

The Wildcats are looking to make their first trip to Battle Creek since winning three consecutive state championships from 2015-17. Novi had some bumps in the road early while dealing with the challenges of COVID-19, but they have really found their stride and navigated through the KLAA with a perfect record.

Novi’s lone losses this year are to Bloomfield Hills, Marian and Stoney Creek. In meetings with the Mustangs and Cougars, Novi grabbed a set.

The Wildcats open district play with rival Northville, which will be a great challenge, but the Wildcats already own two wins over the Mustangs. A win in that opener puts Novi in the driver’s seat for a regional championship.
