Where Will They Go? Division 1 and 2 Girls Basketball Playoff Preview

Division 4 was yesterday and as we do not have any Division 3 schools in the area, we are jumping to Divisions 1 and 2 today

D1 Kimberly Sectional Final
Marshfield Tigers
Seed: 5
9-5 Overall 1st Place WI Valley (7-1)
First Round Opponent: #12 Eau Claire Memorial in a Regional Semifinal
The Marshfield Tigers have had two very different halves to their season, after starting the season with 3 straight losses, first two to D2 Great Northern Conference teams (Medford and Lakeland Union) then getting blown out by SPASH, the tigers have gone 9-2 and avenged the loss to SPASH and sit atop the WI Valley. A lot of their seeding will depend on how much stock the other coaches put in their early-season schedule.

#4 Green Bay Preble vs #13 Wisconsin Rapids
#6 Stevens Point vs #11 Wausau West

#8 Chippewa Falls vs #9 Appleton West

D2 La Crosse Central Sectional Semifinal
Medford Raiders
Seed: 5
12-4 Overall 4th place Great Northern Conference (5-3)
First Round Opponent: BYE (Will play at La Crosse Central in Regional Semifinal)
The Medford Raiders are having a pretty good season, open the season with wins over a D4 state qualifier from last year in Colby and the current leaders in the WI Valley in Marshfield. The downside for the Raiders is they are in a top-heavy half of a section. With teams like River Falls, New Richmond, and Onalaska ahead of them. Pull a few upsets down the stretch, or maybe a stumble or two from one of those teams could see them jump ahead.
