    Yep. SK could beat any of them. That's what's great about the 8th this yr. I feel like any one of 7 teams could possibly make it to Rupp.

    District winners could possibly lose three games.

    I assume it will be the normal format. First round Wednesday and Thursday. Semifinals the 5th and Championship the 6th.

    GC and Henry Co in the same district. They could only meet in the finals.

    GC can't play HC until the finals. They are from the same district.

    District winners play a district runner-up, but cannot draw the runner-up from their own district.

    In addition, teams from the same district must draw into opposite brackets. So rematches of a district final cannot occur until the championship game. That happened most recently last year when District 30 foes Anderson County and Collins met in the final, and in 2013 when 29th district rivals Oldham County and South Oldham played.

    In the 12 years since the last major re-districting (2006), the Region 8 tournament has been won by a 29th district team (6 times: Oldham Co - 3, South Oldham 3) or a 30th district team (6 times: Shelby County 3, Collins 2, Anderson County 1).

    The only appearance by the 31st in the championship game during that period was Gallatin County (runner-up in 2008).

    The 32nd has been in the finals three times, with all three appearances by Simon Kenton (runner-ups in 2006, 2007, and 2014).

    This year, all four districts appear to have an excellent shot at making the final game on March 6th.

    Eleven schools have won the 8th Region since it moved permanently to the Roy in 1963.

    Oldham County won the first event in 1963 and repeated in 1964.

    Titles since the tournament moved to New Castle:

    Shelby County 16
    Oldham County 14
    Scott County 10 (no longer in 8th)
    Anderson County 4
    South Oldham 3 (three of last five)
    Collins 2 (2 of last three)
    Shelbyville 2 (school no longer exists)
    Carroll County 1
    Grant County 1
    Bullitt East 1 (no longer in region)
    Bullitt Central 1 (no longer in region)
