Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Loss to Monticello in first round.

Edward’s evaluation: Winning Region 18 was a great accomplishment for Wendover, but the competition at state will be much, much tougher. That’s not to say the Wildcats are an automatic one-and-done team, because they match up very well with Monticello in the first round.
