It Is Time For Kentucky High School Basketball To Seed Every District Tournament

There are 64 districts in Kentucky high school basketball; 55 of those 64 districts seed the boys district tournament and 54 seed for girls.  Is there any valid reason to not seed each and every district tournament?  If the reason for not seeding is because of scheduling limitations, then that is not a very good reason at all.  There is one class in basketball. One true state champion.  Every school should be treated equitably in the tournament and every school should be given a fair shake at the turnstyle.   That is the spirit behind the sweet 16 or am I missing something?
