Now that the Alice Coyotes are back in the state playoffs, the postseason landscape has some familiar foes and faces, and some new teams.

On Alice’s side of the Class 5A, Div. II Region IV playoff bracket, Alice is opening with Floresville Friday night, and the winner is facing either Sharyland or Brownsville Pace.

This end of the bracket also includes unbeaten Austin McCallum taking on Medina Valley, which is led by former Alice head coach Chris Soza. The winner of that game faces either Terry or San Antonio Houston.

The other end of the Region IV bracket is highlighted by the state-ranked Calallen Wildcats. The unbeaten District 30-5A champion is beginning the state playoffs against District 29-5A’s Uvalde. The winner of that game faces either Mercedes or Pioneer.

The Region IV bracket also includes Kerrville Tivy and Crockett and San Antonio Memorial taking on former 30-5A foe Victoria West.
