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

Edward’s evaluation: For a 15-win team that tied for second in Region 10, Wasatch certainly has a brutal first-round game at 19-win Desert Hills. The Wasps know that better than anyone. They lost to Desert Hills 49-28 at the Sevier Valley Center back in mid-December, and a similar result seems like a foregone conclusion.

You are correct James! It is a travesty that the UHSAA allowed this change in first round match ups that pits Region 9 vs Region 10 for the second year in a row! Never been done before! Totally unfair to these young ladies and their teams? Shame on the 3A principles who voted for this!


Don't put all the blame on the UHSAA. All other sports rotated with the first round region matchups. There was a decision made by Region principals to have the same region match ups as last year. Every year people complain about something. Just go out and play your best. Upsets happen! Go Wasps! A great opportunity to pull an upset early. Wasp girls have what it takes.
