Need to add Harwood to District 6 in Class B as they weren't on the original post.

Changes to B are great. Not sure why Hatton and Nelson County aren't switched, but I'd be very happy with these changes overall. This also addresses the challenges having a host team presents. 7 districts plus 1 host team makes it easy to figure out who's going to state.

The next step is somehow addressing the 3 class system.
- There has to be a way to get a 16 team AA league right? Make Fargo have 3 teams, Bismarck, Dickinson, Grand Forks, Mandan, and West Fargo 2 teams each, and Williston, Minot, and Jamestown 1 team. I understand this waters down some of the teams as they try to progress further on than just ND play, so it's not perfect, but a 9 team class is crazy!
- Put the remaining 50 teams in Class B. 6 districts with 7 and one with 8.
- If 3 classes have to be, having some junior legions from your Class AA teams in A and some in B just seems out of place. Get them all in the same class.

Yea I just don't see Beulah, Casselton, Kindred, and Surrey that much better and bigger that they are in a division with all the class A school towns/teams. AA I think should be 16 and have 2 regions.

It's to bad that four of the top teams in the state are all in the same district.

District#5-Thompson, Larimore, Park River, Grafton, Hatton, Minto, and Langdon.

Those kind of things are cyclical in any sport.

someone mentioned it, but why aren't Hatton and Nelson County switched?

Pretty sure it's Hatton-Northwood too.
