The regular season is barely half over, but many 1A and 2A teams have just two region contests remaining. Some teams in every classification can secure postseason berths this week while others can clinch least a tie for a playoff spot.

No team in the 5A ranks can lay claim to postseason action by winning this week.

But in Class 4A’s Region 5, a Logan victory over Sky View clinches a tie for a tournament berth. In Region 6, if Corner Canyon gets by Skyline, the Chargers secure a playoff berth in their first season. And in Region 7, Timpview grabs a spot by defeating Spanish Fork.

Over in 3AA North, Juan Diego and Stansbury cement postseason berths if they and Park City prevail. In that case, the Miners clinch a tie for postseason play.

In Class 3A North, Judge Memorial and Morgan claim berths by winning, as does Juab in 3A South. If Juab triumphs, the winner of Richfield at Manti also clinches, and the loser can do no worse than tie for a spot.

In 2A North, Layton Christian and South Summit clash for the region lead, and both have already wrapped up postseason berths. Millard and North Summit guarantee themselves tournament combat with a victory.

Class 2A South’s Beaver snares a berth by winning, while Grand has already clinched a tie for a spot. The winner of San Juan at Enterprise likewise clinches a tie.

Finally, all four 1A North teams qualify for the playoffs and Milford is locked in fourth. In Class 1A South, Diamond Ranch, Kanab and Monticello have clinched and Whitehorse at Monument Valley in Week 10 determines the final berth.

No team has been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs and only six schools are out of contention for region championships: American Leadership, Gunnison and Summit Academy in 2A North, Milford in 1A North and Monument Valley and Whitehorse in 1A South.
