In 2016, Farwell and Bovina separated themselves from the rest of the pack, but no team from this district advanced out of the area round.  However, Farwell is returning 11 all-district players, including district MVP Miguel Vasquez who was a workhorse in the backfield. Bovina also has 9 all-district players returning and both teams could be improved for 2017.
