Prep editor James Edward’s bracket: Win over Timpview in championship

Edward’s evaluation: After bowing out in the semifinals a year ago, Bonneville and its No. 1 scoring defense in 4A are poised to make a run at the state championship. The Lakers’ only three losses this year came against Skyline, Layton and Sky View, and some of their quality wins include Timpview, Fremont, Davis and Sky View. Bonneville only surrenders 35.6 ppg, and if defense truly wins championships, this is your team.
