Wildcat Football might have a new district in the fall

The KHSAA held their regular Board of Control meeting in January in Lexington and among the many topics of discussion was a draft proposal to redistrict football across the state.

Under the proposal, Pendleton County would move into a new five team district. It would include Lewis Co., Mason Co., West Carter, and Fleming Co. Under the current playoff format four teams from the district qualify for the playoffs
each season.

When asked about his thoughts on the proposed district Coach Burgemeir responded, “KHSAA has a challenge on where to place us, but I think they may have got it right with this draft alignment.”

Pendleton County has a recent history with three of the new district members and PC Athletic Director Jordan Woodruff said, ”I hope this alignment remains unchanged once finalized and we look forward to a competitive district.”
Being in a five team district would allow Pendleton Co. to qualify for the playoffs by just winning one district game which is very possible as the PC - Lewis Co. series has been close each time the teams have played on the field.

Looking back over the past three seasons, the games outcome have been decided by one touchdown or less.
