April 13: The Storm test the competitive waters against the rival Eagles in an important Class 4A, Section 2 game.

Many Class 4A teams begin their seasons this week, including the top two teams in the Let's Play Baseball preseason poll.
Chanhassen, the defending big-school champion, retained its No. 1 ranking but return only two starters from last year’s team. The Storm play four games - three against teams ranked in Class 4A, including Wednesday's matchup with No. 2-ranked Eden Prairie - this week.

A 6-5 loss to Waconia in last year's Class 3A, Section 2 semifinals combined with a 6-3 loss to Minnetonka kept perennial power Eden Prairie from contenting for a section title, and the Eagles' absence created room for Chanhassen to make its first tournament appearance.
Both teams are members of Class 4A, Section 2 this season, which figures to be the deepest section in the state.
This regular-season matchup has high postseason seeding implications, rightfully making it our Top Game of the Week.
