    What team will KHSAA put in for the 4 seed for 5A district 5?

    With district 5 only having 3 teams with the loss of Grant County and being paired with district 3 which has 6, which team will take the 4 seed in district 5?

    Because of cross bracketing, 5A District 5 is actually in the west half of the bracket this season, and paired with District 3 (Bullitt, Nelson, Oldham district).

    My guess is the #1 seed from District 3 will get a bye in the first week of the playoffs.

    Here is the alignment for 2017 and 2018. Adjusted Football Alignment, 217 and 218 Seasons | Kentucky High School Athletic Association

    Notice they address the 1A and 5A issues where there is a 3 team district, but not others. Grant dropped out of district play after this alignment was approved, and the KHSAA likely won't replace another team as the 4 seed.

    The same thing happened last season in 3A District 5. Sheldon Clark dropped out leaving only 3 teams in the district. Russell was the #1 seed in the opposing district for the playoffs and they received a bye for the first round.

    I made a type above. I meant to type 1A and 6A in that post, instead of 1A and 5A.
