The Kentucky High School Athletic Association's Board of Control had a busy meeting Tuesday.
It finalized a new football alignment, awarded the Girls' Sweet Sixteen to the Bank of Kentucky Center in Northern Kentucky for 2016, and voted to keep the girls' state softball tournament in Owensboro.
The football alignment that goes into effect with the 2015 season is close to what was proposed last month.
There won't be any changes for Lexington's Class 6A schools. Bryan Station, Henry Clay and Paul Laurence Dunbar will remain in District 7 with Scott County, while Lafayette and Tates Creek will stay in District 8 with Clark County and Madison Central.
Never miss a local story.
Lexington Catholic, which will move from 4A to 3A in 2015, will be in District 4 with Boyle County, Garrard County and Western Hills.
Lexington Christian is staying put in its 2A district with Danville, Middlesboro and Somerset.
Traditional powers Covington Catholic and Highlands are moving from 4A to 5A, while Conner and Cooper, are going from 5A to 6A.
The new alignment will also have 6A powerhouses Trinity and St. Xavier in different districts for the first time in four years.
The girls' state basketball tournament, which has been played at Western Kentucky University's Diddle Arena in Bowling Green for the last 14 years, and 21 of the last 30, will change venues in 2016.
The board voted to hold the Girls' Sweet Sixteen at the Bank of Kentucky Center in Northern Kentucky in 2016 and 2017. The BOKC has a capacity of 9,400 compared to Diddle Arena's 7,500.
Bowling Green also bid on the state softball tournament, but the KHSAA board decided to keep it in Owensboro, where it's been held since 2008 and where it will remain through 2018.
Bowling Green will continue to host the state football finals through 2018 and the state golf championships through 2020.
