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

Edward’s evaluation: With five returning starters this season, expectations were high for Woods Cross as it was projected to finish second in Region 6. Instead it finished fourth and now must open the playoffs against Region 7 champion Olympus, which it lost to by 24 points earlier this season.
