Districting misery

Tommy Henry isn't often stymied, but who to include in District 1-3A has done it to him.

I've heard conversation of Vidalia being included, and that's a school all the way over by the Mississippi River. There's no way BTW, North DeSoto and Green Oaks should have to go that far for a district game. And there's no way Vidalia should have to come this far.

The simple solution is either adding the three Shreveport-area schools to the Monroe schools, or adding Winnfield to the Shreveport-area schools.

I think there's too much concern with backroads driving and one school driving past another to play a district game. Is that important? Yes. Should it be an unbreakable principle? No.

Do what works.

District 1-3A for the 2007-08 season in football should be BTW, Green Oaks, North Desoto, Winnfield, and they should allow Springhill to play up to 3A, as they have inquired about. These schools should not have to travel two hours or more to play a district game in Ouachita or Madison Parishes.
