Why are regions 17, 18, and 19 rewarded for being mediocre, some lame team will make it into the semis and a couple of teams from 15 and 16 will be going out the back half of the bracket. Hate to say it but I think some of the games in the consolation bracket will be better then on the winners side. There really has to be a better way.


The regions are paired with each other on a rotational basis, so it just works out that way this year. How would you decide it impartially? Coaches poll? Sportswriters? Combination? Fancy formula with record and strength of schedule included?

What do you think about Valley beating Escalante? I thought they said they were going undefeated in 1A?

RE: 1A Fan

nobody on the team ever said that escalante would go undefeated. not one person. its everyone else doing all the boasting for the team. personally, i think valley played a great game. and escalante shot poorly.


you are right.. we had no seniors on our team this year. we had one junior who was kara jensen,8 sophomores; kiz farrer, alisha hill, kaylee ockey, karlee ockey, alexa nielson, shelbie ballow, kassidy stephenson, and ashley yates. The rest were freshmen. we did ok this season seeing how we are so young. we took 3rd in our region and we are going to come back stronger than ever next year!!
(even though we are going 3A)


Wayne just lost their play in game to Green River, a team that Milford beat by 20 points.
