In the championship I am going Dove Creek over De Beque.

District 3 qualifies 3 teams into regionals. District 3 kicks things off with a first-round game between Kim/Branson and Walsh. Kim/Branson won the regular season meetings and I am picking them in this game as well. The winner will face Springfield in the Semifinals. The semifinals should be good games.

District 4 qualifies 3 teams into regionals. The quarterfinal rounds kick off tonight with 4 win or go home games. I am picking Briggsdale over Peetz, Merino over Prairie, Fleming over Caliche, and Longmont Christian over Weldon Valley. The semifinals should be very competitive, and I am going with Briggsdale over Merino and Fleming over Longmont Christian. The District championship between Fleming and Briggsdale would be the third meeting with both teams winning 1 game.

I am going with Sangre De Cristo over Manzanola, Antonito over La Veta, Cotopaxi over Sierra Grande, and Moffat over Centennial. In the semifinals I am going with Sangre De Cristo over Antonito and Cotopaxi over Moffat.
