It's not that difficult. (it's also the reason they should have gone to 3 classifications instead of 5. Then in sports like football, basketball, baseball, softball and soccer you could have had 6 state champions and in smaller sports, like lacrosse, have 3). I'm pretty positive that the York county school don't want to have to drive to northern Richland county to play region games when there are going to be 10 schools between York county, Chester HS and Indian Land all within 20 miles in a couple years (remember with Rock Hill was in a region with Spring Valley, Blythewood, etc and not with Northwestern!!!). Spartanburg, Greenville, Charleston, Columbia, etc would all be able to do it and it would really help with travel during the week (which affects every sport including football if you look at sub-varsity teams). It allows the development of local rivalries that aren't affected by tournament divisions.
