It came as no surprise last Wednesday that the Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) board of control approved the new alignment for soccer districts and regions.
KHSAA released a first draft of the new alignments in late November, and the same changes passed with approval last week.
Under the new alignment, which will take effect for the 2012 season, East Jessamine and West Jessamine will be in District 46 with Burgin High School and Mercer County High School.
District 46 will be in Region 12 with the 45th, 47th, and 48th districts, which include schools from Boyle County, Garrard County, Pulaski County, McCreary County, and Wayne County.
The new alignment is the same as the baseball, softball, and basketball alignments.
“I like it and think it bodes well for KHSAA to bring some consistency around the state in using the basketball, baseball and softball districts and regions as a template,” Jessamine County district athletic director Ken Cox said in November.
