No. 1 seed: Camas (8-0), Skyview (6-2), Union (5-3). Camas clinches the No. 1 seed with a win over Union. If Union beats Camas, and Skyview beats last-place Heritage, all three schools will be tied atop the standings, and there will be a coin flip to determine the top three seeds.

No. 3 seed: Camas (8-0), Skyview (6-2), Union (5-3). Union would be the No. 3 if it loses to Union, and Skyview beats last-place Heritage. If Union beats Camas, and Skyview beats Heritage, all three schools will be tied atop the standings, and there will be a coin flip to determine the top three seeds.

No. 1 seed: Ferris (7-1), Gonzaga Prep (5-2), Mead (5-2). Ferris will claim the No. 1 seed if it beats Mead. If Mead wins, and Gonzaga Prep beats Lewis and Clark, Gonzaga Prep is No. 1. If Mead wins, and Gonzaga Prep is upset by Lewis and Clark, Mead is No. 1.

No. 2 seed: Gonzaga Prep (5-2), Mead (5-2), Ferris (7-1), Central Valley (5-3). Most likely it is one of the first two schools - if Ferris beats Mead, Gonzaga Prep is No. 2 if it beats Lewis and Clark. If Mead beats Ferris, it would be No. 2 if Gonzaga Prep beats Lewis and Clark.

If Lewis and Clark upsets Gonzaga Prep, and Central Valley beats University, then three two-loss teams will play if off for final spot.
