Here is my disclaimer – my numbers are unofficial. The athletic directors and AAA officials will make the final determinations as what the seeds are as well as settle any tiebreakers.
Having said there, here is what I have (unofficially) for seeds.

Central – North Little Rock, FS Northside, LR Central, Cabot, Conway, & Bryant.
West – Springdale Har-Ber, Bentonville, Van Buren, Fayetteville, Rogers Heritage, & Bentonville West.
We have a couple of close tiebreakers in the 7A-Central Boys and the 7A-West Boys. In fact, the boys tiebreakers were close.
