FINAL RANKINGS: Calumet goes into the postseason at No. 1; Trenton, Heritage, Pioneer join the final hockey top 25

By: SEAN BALIGIAN, March 15, 2021, 3:19 am

If it seems like the puck just dropped on the regular season a blink of the eye ago — well, it sorta did. But we’re through the regular season, and on to the postseason already, so we’ll give you one last edition of the SC! top 25 rankings before the playoffs commence. The Copper Kings go into the postseason unbeaten at 14-0-1, as do the Bulldogs of Byron Center (14-0), while No. 2 Detroit Catholic Central has just one blemish. Trenton, Ann Arbor Pioneer and Saginaw Heritage all move into the back end of the top 25 after big wins.
