The Lady Lobos earned the top overall seed in the 3A East Regional Tournament by virtue of their perfect region mark. As the top seed they have earned a bye in the first round of the regional tournament and will face either No. 5 Round Valley or No. 4 Payson at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 28, at Round Valley High School in Eagar. Show Low is the second seed and will see either third seeded Blue Ridge or sixth seeded Alchesay, also on Thursday afternoon in Eagar.

The Lady Lobos are headed to the state tournament as the No. 3 overall seed behind Winslow and Estrella Foothills. The Lady Lobos were 15-1 in power point contests, including a 7-5 win over Show Low in their regular season finale last Friday. Their only power point loss on the season came last week to the top ranked Lady Bulldogs.
