The WIAA has now released the Division 1 playoff seeds and will begin on May 28. Defending state champ Sun Prairie received a No. 1 seed and will have to repeat without the services of star player and Virginia commit Tony Butler. Waunakee, Kimberly, Madison West, Bay Port, Milwaukee King, Stevens Point and Kenosha Bradford are the remaining one seeds.

The Red Devils of Kenosha Bradford look to be in a prime position to make a deep run. With two high powered arms in Colton Lee and Kevin Tibor, there aren’t too many teams that can match that combo. Bay Port should be the clear favorite to make it out of the Bay Port Sectional. Eau Claire Memorial could be a sleeper as a No. 3 seed. Even though they have lost their starting shortstop and Northwestern commit Grant Peikert, they still have arguably the best pitcher in the state with Louisville commit Jacob Sparger and junior right-hander Dalton Roach two pitchers that have the ability to take the Old Abe’s all the way to Appleton.

The toughest sectional has to be the Kaukauna sectional with three legitimate state contenders in Kimberly, Hortonville and Appleton North. Hortonville is a team loaded with juniors and might lack experience and Kimberly is a team led by returning All-State honorable mention Scott Schreiber. As a three seed Appleton North has one of the tougher lineups in the state with Arkansas commit Clark Eagan leading the way. The Kaukauna sectional is definitely one to keep an eye on with a number of high level prospects in that sectional anyone of them could get hot and make a run.
