"Everyone will be watching out for Amanda," Camps said. "She's our leading scoring and has been for four years now."
Manti is the only team that has beaten Grand this season and holds the top spot in the 2A East region. Millard is undefeated in 2A West play and will face Rowland Hall in Wednesday's first round.
In 4A, top-ranked Bonneville looks to move past the semifinals, where it stumbled against second-ranked Skyline a year ago.
"Our goal, of course, is the championship game," Bonneville coach Rob McDaniel said, "but at the same time we are taking it one game at a time. Orem has done well in big games. They have our focus."
The Lakers will take on Orem with senior Megan Fillpot in goal. Fillpot has recorded 10 shutouts this season, and is aided by the work of Sadee Sholly and the rest of the Bonneville defense.
"We have had only six goals scored on us all year, just three in region play," McDaniel said. "Our defense is our strong point."
The 4A tournament will be filled with close contests. When asked what teams to watch for, McDaniel listed nearly every team in the tournament as a strong team.
"I think there will be a lot of close games," he said. "In the first round, I think there will be a few upsets and big wins. After that, with No. 1's versus No. 2's, I think there will be a lot of close games."
Along with Bonneville, it is Bountiful, Skyline and Maple Mountain that finished at the top of their respective regions. Skyline senior Ashley Aberton is second in scoring for the classification. She has scored 19 goals, just one behind 4A-leading Lana Willard of Box Elder.
One of 4A's newest members, Herriman, has already worked hard to elbow its way into the tournament. The Mustangs defeated Murray in a Region 7 tiebreaker when Taylor Crowton knocked in a goal late in the second half. They then turned around to defeat Mountain View on a Rachel Richards goal in a 4A play-in game. After a weekend of rest, the Mustangs will travel to play Bountiful today.
"When you cross regions, you never know," McDaniel said of predicting winners in tournament play. "Preseason is a crapshoot; teams are still trying to figure out their lineups. In region, you know more what to expect because you see those teams often. In the playoffs, when you cross regions and play all new teams, you have no idea what to expect. Anything can happen."
Tournament play for 5A and 4A teams starts on Tuesday while 3A and 2A begins Wednesday. All first-round games will be played at the home site of the higher-seeded team.
