This most often sets up huge mismatches between the 1st and 4th seeds, leaving the middle games the most interesting and the other two games played as warm-ups.

As an example, Kennedale (32-7, 12-0) is the #1 seed out of District 9-4A followed by Benbrook, Lake Worth and Castleberry. Dallas Faith Family is the 4th seed from District 10-4A and therefore gets the draw with Kennedale. The top seed from District 10-4A is Carrollton Ranchview (23-12, 8-0) and will play Castleberry (7-21, 5-7).

Kennedale and Carrollton are the favorites in bi-district round. Kennedale defeated Oak Cliff Family in 3 sets to win the bi-district title.
