Clearly the focus of the realignment is not the travel distance. If it was to cut down travel distance explain the Castle and Evansville Central sectionals. Travel was greatly increased in those two sectionals.
I would like to hear how far travel was increased for those schools?how greatly was the increase in miles and time? I dont know what the conspiracy theory is but Switzerland Co, Madison, JC and a few others no longer have to stay all night in a hotel and travel so far. I really hope none of he schools you mentioned now have to stay in a hotel for regionals. Believe it or not it, to some it is a big deal to be able to sleep in your own bed, at your own house, have a normal workout at your own school, etc the night before a huge tournament.
