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

Edward’s evaluation: Westlake is the only team with a losing record in the 4A playoffs as it enters the postseason as the No. 4 seed from Region 7, the weakest in 4A. That doesn’t bode well heading into the first round against a Bountiful team on an 18-game winning streak.
