If a public school is good enough they should be in it. Reading won in 2008 and they deserve all the credit in the world for that. There's usually 2 or 3 every year.

If no public school can beat the 9th best Catholic school in the regular tourney, so be it.
1 public has won it in what, 17 years?

No incentive to stay in your city and play for your own town in this system.

The point is it is nearly impossible for the publics to compete at the highest levels with the privates. So split them.
