Mapping issues: Geneseo is tricky. And it might be a stretch to put it in District 6, but it is closer on the whole to the majority of the teams in that district, despite the fact that it is farther north than Streator, which was placed in District 5. Splitting teams between District 3 and District 4 is a fine line as well and those teams could easily be distributed in a different way.
