Class 3A First Round Quick Hits
#1 Hope Christian is the clear team to beat and they have proven that with quality wins over Santa Fe Indian School and proved their statewide talent with a win over Hobbs late in the season. #8 Robertson and #9 Socorro is a tough game to pick, but the Lady Cardinals have played in a good district which should help them move into the quarterfinals. #5 Taos and #4 Shiprock should have no opening round issues advancing.
Shiprock is a team that has final four talent having won 22 gamest this year. On the lower half of the bracket, I really like the Lovington Wildcats. They have a tough road to the title game, but it's not impossible. They need not to overlook Raton or they could be one and done. Santa Fe Indian should dominate in the fist two rounds. Looking ahead, not many teams match up well with either Hope Christian or Santa Fe Indian. Looks like those two could meet for a fourth time in the title game.
Class 2A First Round Quick Hits
The top side of this bracket is loaded. While Laguna Acoma landed up with the number one seed. Tularosa and Mora are also teams with high caliber talent. Do not see many top side upsets taking place in round one. Laguna is 24-3, Mora is 25-2, and Tularosa is 21-5. On the bottom side of the bracket, Navajo Pine at 23-4 should get past Santa Fe Prep with ease and Texico at 19-7 should have no issues with Ramah.
Class 1A First Round Quick Hits
Overall the number one and number two seeds in 1A are as good as they've ever been. Tatum is 25-1 this year, Cliff shares that record as the number two seeded team. Logan and along with Dora are teams that could play spoiler, but as mentioned the top teams in 1A are very superior.
