#1 Watford City

vs.

#8 Williston Trinity

  • The Wolves are the defending Region 8 Champions and finished 2nd at the State Tournament last year. This years team isn’t quite as dominant as last years but a return trip to the State Tournament for the Wolves wouldn’t shock anyone.

 

#4 Mandaree

vs. 

#5 Trenton

  • Mandaree claimed a 64-63 win over Trenton in early December. That score is a little misleading, Trenton is extremely young as has progressed over the course of the year with recent a recent win over #1 seed from District 16 Powers Lake and a 1 point loss to #2 seed New Town as prime evidence. The Trenton Tigers are the favorite in this first round matchup.

 

#2 New Town

vs. 

#7 White Sheild

  • New Town is probably the most talented team in Region 8 when they are at full strength, which was rarely the case this season. The sophomore duo of Marveen Ross and Tyleigh Brady presents a very difficult matchup for anyone in the region. The Eagles could easily find themselves with a Region 8 Championship, they are that good.

 

#3 Parshall

vs. 

#6 North Shore

  • The Parshall Braves are a bit of a wildcard in the District 15 Tournament. They have a similar team makeup to #2 New Town with Senior Lexis Tveter and Junior Sidney Hall giving the Braves an advantage over most teams at the guard position.  A likely semifinal matchup between the Braves and New Town Eagles will be really interesting to watch. The Eagles won the only meeting 66-63 a couple of weeks ago.

Championship: 

#2 New Town over #1 Watford City

Qualifier #1

#3 Parshall over #4 Mandaree

Qualifier #2

#5 Trenton over #6 North Shore
