The Kalida District has OHSCVA Division IV #1 St. Henry (seeded #1 at Kalida), #4 Fort Recovery (seeded #2 at Kalida) and #19 Lima Central Catholic (seeded #5 at Kalida). Not ranked at state but in the Kalida field is 18-2 Lincolnview (seeded 3) and 17-3 Crestview (seeded #4). At least one of those teams will not advance to the District Semifinals.
