Highland (6-1, 1-0 5A District 5-6) faces No. 4 Madison on Friday at Holt Arena, while the D-backs (5-2, 3-0 4A District 4-5 East Pod) face No. 5 Minico on Friday at Holt Arena.

West Side is 2A’s No. 2 squad for the sixth consecutive week. The Pirates (6-0, 2-0 2A District 5) had a bye and play Friday at Bear Lake.
