Here’s the updated Class 1A postseason projections. There are no playoff-qualifying games in Week 9 for any 1A leagues or districts. The fun begins next week.

District 1/3
Four state berths
The Nisqually League champion receives an automatic state berth as District 1/3 No. 2 seed
Northwest District crossover

 

Thursday, Nov. 5
Game 1: Northwest No. 4 Friday Harbor at Cascade No. 1 King’s
If King’s wins, it will be placed directly on the state playoff bracket as the District 1/3 No. 1 seed
Game 2: Northwest No. 3 Lynden Christian at Northwest No. 1 Nooksack Valley
Game 3: Northwest No. 2 Meridian at Cascade No. 2 Coupeville
Tuesday Nov. 10
Northwest No. 3 Meridian at WCD No. 2 Vashon
WCD No. 3 Port Townsend at Northwest No. 2 Nooksack Valley
If both No. 2 seeds win, WCD No. 2 receives the district’s No. 3 seed and NW No. 2 receives the No. 4 seed

Click here to get the full breakdown on the District 1/3 scenarios.

SCAC Crossovers (District 5)
Four state berths
East No. 4 Wahluke at West No. 1 Zillah
East No. 3 River View at West No. 2 Naches Valley
West No. 3 Goldendale at East No. 2 Royal
West No. 4 Cle Elum/Roslyn at East No. 1 Connell

If East No. 1 Connell and West No. 1 Zillah both win, Zillah receives the overall No. 1 seed.

Caribou Trail-Northeast Crossovers
Four state berths
Game 1: CTL No. 5 Chelan vs. CTL No. 1 Cashmere, winner is District 6 No. 1
Game 2: CTL No. 4 Okanogan vs. NEA No. 1 Chewelah, winner is District 7 No. 1
Game 3: CTL No. 2 Leavenworth Cascade vs. NEA No. 3 Freeman, winner is District 6 No. 2
Game 4: CTL No. 3 Omak vs. NEA No. 2 Kettle Falls, winner is District 7 No. 2

There’s a potential for a three-way tie for second place in the Northeast 1A League between Freeman, Kettle Falls and Lakeside. For now, we’ve slotted Kettle Falls and Freeman in the crossovers. If there is a tie, the three teams will play a Kansas City tie-breaker at 6 p.m. Monday at Chewelah.

District 4
Four state berths
Game 1: Evergreen No. 1 Montesano vs. Trico No. 1 LaCenter, winner is District 4 No. 1, loser No. 2 seed
Game 2: Trico No. 2 Castle Rock vs. Evergreen No. 3 Toledo, winner is District 4 No. 3 seed
Game 3: Evergreen No. 2 Onalaska vs. Trico No. 3 White Salmon Columbia, winner is District 4 No. 4 seed

  1. Doug,

    Someone on WashingtonPreps.com pointed out the following mistake you made on the projections. You have the following in crossovers:

    Game 2: CTL No. 4 Okanogan vs. NEA No. 1 Chewelah, winner is District 7 No. 1

    Game 4: CTL No. 3 Omak vs. NEA No. 2 Kettle Falls, winner is District 7 No. 2

    Which means your first-round state projections can’t be possible. I think instead you meant to put the following:

    Game 2: District 5 No. 3 Naches Valley at District 7 No. 1 Chewelah

    Game 3: District 7 No. 2 (winner of Omak vs Kettle Falls at District 5 No. 1 Zillah
