Chi-Hi (5-4, 3-4) earned a No. 7 seed in the Division 1 playoffs and will play at No. 2 Kimberly (8-1, 7-1), the four-time defending Division 1 state champion.

Stanley-Boyd (6-3, 5-3) is in the same regional as Bloomer as a No. 6 seed and plays at No. 3 Elk Mound (7-2, 5-1). Lake Holcombe/Cornell (6-3, 4-3) is a No. 8 seed for Division 6 and play on the road at top-seeded Eau Claire Regis (9-0, 8-0) at Carson Park in Eau Claire.
