Too stacked of a regional at Rochester

On Thursday, boys tennis regionals around the state will take place as area teams attempt to qualify for the state tournament next week.
Glancing at the regional pairings, Kosmo only has one question to ask when viewing the regional scheduled for Rochester High.
Is the MHSAA nuts?
Just take a look at all the good teams and players in this regional. You have defending state champion Birmingham Brother Rice, Troy and West Bloomfield, all of which are ranked in the state right now. Troy Athens isn't that bad, and Stoney Creek also has a good singles player in sophomore Nick Fiaschetti.
Only two teams automatically qualify, with the third-place finisher still having an opportunity if they get enough points.
Still, this is simply too many good teams and players in one region. It might hurt the quality of play at the state tournament if good teams and players can't qualify out of regionals when they deserve to be at states.
It should make for a fun Thursday of tennis, but these teams should've been split up a little better.
— In addition to tennis regionals, girls golf will have their regional tournaments on Thursday as well. A Division 1 regional at Twin Lakes in Oakland Township should see three OAA teams qualify for the state tournament, that being Stoney Creek, Troy and Rochester.
