Area teams involved: La Crosse Logan Sectional — Eleva-Strum, Alma/Pepin, Blair-Taylor, Elmwood, Gilmanton, Independence, Plum City, Greenwood, Alma Center Lincoln. Spooner Sectional — Owen-Withee, Cornell, Gilman, Bruce, Lake Holcombe, Thorp, New Auburn, Glenwood City, Prairie Farm, McDonell, Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran
What to watch for: Eau Claire Immanuel Lutheran (18-3) is the second seed in its regional. The Lancers hope to make a deep playoff run with their high-powered offense, led by senior Abbie Hein, but Owen-Withee (18-2) is the class of this half of the sectional. Two of the Blackhawks' losses this season came in competitive games with Neillsville. They should thrive playing in Division 5.
Large Dairyland champion Eleva-Strum is the top seed in its regional of the La Crosse Logan Sectional. If the Cardinals were to reach the sectional semifinals, they'd likely meet Wisconsin Rapids Assumption, the top-ranked team in the state.
