*Consideration: depending on the amount of teams that commit to participate in the sport during the 2020 sport season, the FHSAA office will look into the possibility of restructuring the district complex in the sport from 8 districts to 16 districts per classification, and in doing so advance the top three (3) teams per district to regional meet.
