Among Hamilton County's nine schools, both Class 4A No. 4 Carmel (19-2) and 3A No. 17 Hamilton Heights Huskies (16-7) received first-round byes.

The Greyhounds host Sectional 8 and face a semifinal path that leads through either No. 3 North Central (15-5) or Fishers (12-9), which recently wrapped up its first Hoosier Crossroads Conference title.
