Region 4 (six teams, four berths)

Lone Peak clinches a tie for a berth with a victory over Pleasant Grove. No team faces elimination.

Class 4A

Region 5 (six teams, four berths)

The winner of Mountain Crest at Logan — both have qualified for state — gets at least share of the region title. (It would be Logan’s third-straight league crown and 26th overall or Mountain Crest’s first since 2010 and 13th overall.)

Box Elder clinches a spot by knocking off Bonneville. Roy does too if it beats Sky View and the Bees triumph — and then the Bobcats are out. Bonneville is eliminated if it loses and Roy wins.

Region 6 (six teams, four berths)

This region’s outlook mirrors Region 5 with different names.

The winner of East at Bountiful — both have secured berths — enjoys a share of the league crown. (It would be defending region champ East’s 33rd title or Bountiful’s first since 2010 and 12th overall).

Highland clinches a spot with a victory over Cyprus. Woods Cross does too if it beats Clearfield and the Rams win — and then the Falcons are eliminated. Cyprus is out if it loses and Woods Cross wins.

Region 7 (six teams, four berths)

Skyline snares at least a share of the region title — its first since 2004 and 21st overall — by defeating Westlake. Herriman, Olympus and Westlake can all stake a claim in postseason play by winning. Hillcrest and/or Murray are eliminated with a loss to Oly and Herriman, respectively.

Region 8 (eight teams, five berths)

A lot can still happen in this region, but if Timpview wins, the T-birds are in. Orem, Maple Mountain and Timpanogos clinch a tie for a berth by winning. Nobody faces elimination.

Class 3A

Region 9 (seven teams, four berths)

Hurricane has a bye but has clinched a tie for a berth. A Dixie win over Cedar also clinches a tie for the Flyers as does a Desert Hills victory over Snow Canyon. But the Warriors can clinch a tie if they prevail and Pine View beats Canyon View. The Panthers clinch a tie if they and Dixie are winners. No team faces elimination.

Reigon 10 (six teams, four berths)

The winner of defending region champ Juan Diego at Wasatch garners a berth and at least a portion of the league crown. (It would be JD’s 10th straight or Wasatch’s first since 2007 and 21st overall.) The Wasps also get top seed by winning. The Union at Judge victor clinches a tie for a berth.

Region 11 (seven teams, four berths)

Stansbury (hosting Ogden), Morgan (at Tooele) and Grantsville (at Bear River) can individually clinch a tie for a berth by winning. If all three triumph, the Stallions secure a spot. If Bear River and Morgan prevail, the Bears clinch a tie. Tooele and Ben Lomond are eliminated only if Morgan, Grantsville and Ogden all win.

Region 12 (six teams, four berths)

The Delta at Spanish Fork winner clinches a tie for a berth and grabs a spot if North Sanpete defeats Carbon and Payson beats Juab. In that case, North Sanpete and Payson as well as the Delta-Spanish Fork loser clinch ties. No one faces elimination.

2A North (eight teams, six berths)

A Manti victory over American Leadership eliminates the Eagles and secures a share of the region title for the Templars — the team's second straight and eighth overall. A Millard win over North Sevier ousts the Wolves. The North Summit at Gunnison winner earns a berth and the loser does too if Manti and Millard win. But that loser likely gets sixth place.
