    If you operate from a basic premise that the 9th Region and 8th Region have some serious illogicalities to their current design, as well as from the knowledge of the fact that schools will need to be moving eastward or westward to help fill out unbalanced regions, what has to be done makes sense.

    Sadly, it'll never happen the way it should.

    But it all should start at the top of the state, where the biggest growth is. Easiest fix to 9th Region overcrowding is to move all Boone Co. schools to the 8th Region, and ship SK back to the 9th. That leaves 16 in the 9th, if I counted right.

    To fix the 8th, you could possibly have the Oldham schools go into the 7th Region, and some shuffling there would push the Bullitt schools and Spencer into the 5th. Anderson would have to go to the 12th, which makes more sense for them and their orientation along 127. Other possibilities include the Grant Co. and Scott Co. schools to the 10th, Franklin schools coming into the 8th, and a whole bunch of other stuff.

    It's all a big mess, with lots of moving parts. But if we want the regions to be balanced, some messy things have to happen. Whole districts in some cases will have to jump regions, unless we're OK with 3-team districts and teams getting byes into the region tournament.

    Agree there is no easy fix. Moving all of Boone into the 8th is an option but would that include St Henry? The other idea that has floated around for years is moving all Campbell Co schools to the 10th. The 10th would stretch from Dayton to Robertson Co with the current 10th schools farther south moving to the 16th and other regions.

    Not sure why??? Both were part of the 9th and 33rd district back in the day. That was a 7 team district at one point.

    9th Region is historically a lot more difficult than the 8th to get out of. Plus, depending on the district, these two teams would have a more difficult time making it to the region tournament. I'm just saying that going against Grant County and Williamstown to get to the region tournament is more appealing than going against Cooper, Conner, Ryle, and Boone County.

    Not just St Henry, what about Heritage?

    So you would prefer the closer proximity to teams in SKís region than you would having a potentially easier path to a regional championship?
