Looking toward the postseason, 23 teams have already secured playoff berths: Corner Canyon (Region 7); Timpview (Region 8), Juan Diego, Park City and Stansbury (3AA North); Judge and Morgan (3A North); Juab and Manti (3A South); South Summit, Layton Christian, Millard and North Summit (2A North); Beaver, Grand and San Juan (2A South); Altamont, Duchesne, Rich and Milford (every 1A North team); and Diamond Ranch, Kanab and Monticello (1A South).

Incidentally, Corner Canyon becomes the 13th school and fourth in four seasons to snare a tournament berth in its first year. (Herriman in 2010, Diamond Ranch in ’11 and Summit Academy last season were the other recent first-year qualifiers). Of the previous 12, however, only Mountain View, in 1980, won a first-round game.

With 23 berths locked up, 45 spots remain up for grabs.

Ten teams have clinched at least a tie for a tournament spot: Logan (Region 5); Springville (Region 8); Dixie and Pine View (3AA South); Grantsville (3A North); Richfield (3A South); American Leadership and Gunnison (2A North); and Enterprise and Parowan (2A South).

Meanwhile, seven teams could be eliminated by losing this week: Clearfield, Delta, Fremont, North Sanpete, North Sevier and Viewmont, and the loser of Ogden at Bonneville.

A region-by-region breakdown appears later on.
