3A West at Mountain View:

To break the 4-way tie for the 3-4-5-6 seeds, first the coaches took the 4 tied teams and compared how each team did vs. the other tied teams within the group. Cody had the best record among the 4, at 4-2, so they get the #3 seed (Lyman was 3-3, SV was 3-3 and Lander was 2-4). With the Fillies removed from the tie, coaches restarted the tie-breaking procedures for the other 3 teams. Checking record vs. the other remaining tied teams, Star Valley had the best record vs. the other 2, so the Lady Braves get the #4 seed (SV was 3-1 vs. Lyman and Lander, Lyman was 2-2 and Lander was 1-3). With SV removed from the tie, that left Lyman and Lander, and coaches restarted the tie-breaking procedure again. Using record vs. highest team in the conference not involved in the tie, Lander got the #5 seed over Lyman, because the Lady Tigers have a win vs. Powell, whereas the Lady Eagles do not.
