So it was a win and your in the state tournament or lose and stay home deal, the Broncs beat Campbell County 53-44 to punch their ticket to Casper. Sheridan did end up losing to Thunder Basin and Cheyenne Central in that regional to grab the #4 seed from the East at the state tourney.

In the quarterfinal round of the state tournament, Sheridan pulled a big upset as they defeated the #1 seed from the West, Natrona 53-51.
