Iowa and the IGHSAU are a little bit different (in a great way) in comparison to other states in how they draw regional lines as best they can to have the top eight teams not face each other until the state tournament. Does it always work out that way? No, but it often prevents a Western and Unity Christian from facing each other to go to state or an Ankeny vs. Ankeny Centennial or Dowling vs. Valley matchup outside of Cedar Rapids. What teams will be ready for one of those top eight seeds and who will be ready for a state tournament appearance come November.
