    From a strictly geographical perspective yes. In the district they are in their shortest road trip is longer then their longest one would be otherwise.

    I agree with you. That is one I would be interested in hearing the background and decision-making process on.

    I'd say the fact that Oldham County didn't request to move is why they weren't moved today. If the KHSAA moved them based on another school's request then you open a huge can of worms and set a precedent that is sure to be used by others going forward.

    As to why Oldham isn't in the Louisville district is another question entirely. There are no Oldham folks on the Board of Control so that theory is out. I do think they're in an easier district now; is it possible they said they'd drop out of district play if placed in Louisville, which would have resulted in a 5A school having to bump up to 6A to keep the number at 32? That's my only guess.

    The proposal was linked in their BOC agenda today but haven't heard if it passed. There was only one option so I'm guessing it will continue.

    Western half of 2A picked up the Danville, LCA, Somerset district. Schools in the east should like seeing that.

    Washington County traded district foes CAL and DeSales for LCA, Danville, and Somerset. Went from bad to still bad!

    The Board of Control conducted its final meeting of the 2017-18 academic year on May 8-9 at the KHSAA offices, addressing several issues related to football along with the postseason for multiple sport-activities.

    Following initial review in February, KHSAA staff presented the draft football alignment (2019-22) to the membership for comment. After a lengthy review of feedback and consideration of each change proposed by the membership, the Board approved a final four-year alignment to begin in 2019. The new football alignment can be viewed at: Final Approved Alignment – Football – 219 through 222 Playing Seasons | Kentucky High School Athletic Association

    With recent change allowing football playing member schools to have two scrimmages regardless of playing season, staff recommended to eliminate the “week 0” terminology from the scheduling grid, as it no longer has an impact on a team’s regular season or scrimmage schedule. The mandatory scheduling grid is listed at: https://khsaa.org/football/schedulin...hrough2022.pdf

    The Board approved the removal of “week 0” from the scheduling grid lexicon, while also electing to keep week 11 (formerly week 10, the last playing week of the regular season) as a mandatory non-district week. In its final football-related action of the meeting, the Board approved the proposed cross bracketing format for Classes 2A through 6A for the 2019-2022 playoffs, available here: https://khsaa.org/football/regionrot...hrough2022.pdf

    Well first, Oldham County didnt threaten anything.
    second, they asked if someone would volunteer to travel and OC did.
    third, If there is 32 teams in a class, someone has to travel. I noticed there is a 5 team district in 6A? Why didnt a 5A team volunteer to play up in 6A and make even districts?

    There is also a 3 team district in 6A, geography determined those districts more than anything.
