Wasn't Cordia's game against Jackson City the one for the All A? I thought I saw that earlier this year when when the sanctions were brought down.

 

Is cordia in the All A? I'm looking at the bracket, Cordia is not listed as a participating team.

 

Jackson City is scheduled to face the winner of Owsley/Wolfe......Hazard will face winner of Lee/June Buchanan and Leslie will face winner of Buckhorn and Jenkins
