Class 4A-I:

District 1 – Both Basehor-Linwood and Tonganoxie have clinched the playoff spots out of District 1. The Bobcats and Chieftains will meet this week in Tonganoxie to decide the district championship. The game carries enough significance to be voted on by the fans as the Kpreps statewide Game of the Week. Either way these two teams will have a challenge in the first round of the playoffs. The winner of Friday’s game will likely host No. 3 De Soto, while the loser will likely travel to No. 1 Bishop Miege.     

Atchison (4-4; 0-2) at KC Piper (3-5; 0-2)
Basehor-Linwood (7-1; 2-0) at Tonganoxie (8-0; 2-0)

District 2 – Top-ranked Bishop Miege has clinched at least a playoff spot. Even if the Stags stumble this week, they can finish no worse than in the top two in district margin points.  De Soto can clinch the runner-up spot with a win over Eudora. Spring Hill and Eudora still have outside shots at the second playoff spot, but each will need help.   

                Eudora (2-6; 0-2) at De Soto (7-1; 1-1)
                Bishop Miege (8-0; 2-0) at Spring Hill (2-6; 1-1)

District 3 – Fort Scott has clinched the district championship with wins over Louisburg and Paola. The winner of the Paola game at Louisburg will advance to the playoffs as the district runner-up.

Ottawa (1-7; 0-2) at Fort Scott (6-2; 2-0)

District 4 – Labette County has clinched a playoff spot as even with a 21-point loss to Coffeyville and a Chanute win, the Grizzlies would finish in the top two in terms of district margin points. Chanute qualifies for the playoffs with a win over Indy and a Coffeyville loss.  Coffeyville advances with a win over Labette, but can also get in with a loss and an Indy win over Chanute.  Independence has been eliminated. Even if the Bulldogs beat Chanute and Coffeyville loses to Labette, Indy cannot finish in the top two of points margin.

                Independence (2-6; 0-2) at Chanute (4-4; 1-1)
                Labette County (7-1; 2-0) at Coffeyville (4-4; 1-1)

                Towanda-Circle (0-8; 0-2) at Buhler (6-2; 1-1)
