Claysburg-Kimmel High School's bid for a third District 6 Class A championship in four years will begin on May 24 against a field of teams filled with opponents from within the Altoona Mirror coverage area.
The undefeated Lady Bulldogs were unveiled as the top seed in the 6-A tournament when the district released its pairings for all the classifications but AAAA on Friday night.
A total of 11 area teams entered the playoffs in Class AAA, AA and A. Huntingdon captured the second seed in Class AAA through the district formula using wins and schedule strength, Philipsburg-Osceola and Penn Cambria are the third- and fourth-seeded teams in a 16-squad Class AA bracket, and Bellwood-Antis is the No. 3 seed in Class A.
The playoffs open on May 16 with a Class AA first-round contest.
