State tournament brackets were revealed Thursday for 6A and 5A high school baseball. Here’s where northern Utah schools in Regions 1, 2 and 5 landed in their respective tournaments.

6A: After winning Region 1 with an unbeaten 18-0 record and after having not lost since March, Fremont High’s baseball team is the No. 1 seed for the upcoming state playoffs. The Silverwolves have a first-round bye and will host a playoff series beginning next Thursday, May 19.

Farmington is the No. 9 seed with a 16-9 record. West Jordan also went 16-9, but finished at No. 8 in the RPI ahead of Farmington because WJ played a slightly stronger schedule. Farmington hosts West High in a first-round playoff series beginning Saturday at 1 p.m.

The rest of the first-round matchups, which begin Saturday at 1 p.m., are as follows: No. 20 Roy at No. 13 Weber (2 p.m.), No. 22 Clearfield at No. 11 Davis, No. 21 Syracuse at No. 12 Kearns, and No. 19 Layton at No. 14 Herriman.

5A: Region 5 champion Woods Cross is the No. 7 seed and has a first-round bye, so the Wildcats will host a playoff series starting next Thursday, May 19.

The northern half of Region 5 will all have to play in to the state tournament on Friday, May 13. Bonneville was the bottom seed in the tournament, No. 33, and will face Timpview at 1:30 p.m. Friday at Uintah High, with the winner taking on Uintah in a play-in game.

No. 21 Northridge hosts No. 28 Alta and No. 24 Box Elder hosts No. 25 Cedar Valley in Friday’s play-in round.

Bountiful is the No. 10 seed and Viewmont is No. 14; both teams will host a playoff series starting this Saturday against an opponent yet to be determined.
