UIL Releases New Football, Basketball Districts
AUSTIN (AP) — Texas high schools have new football and basketball districts under new boundaries released Monday by the University Interscholastic League.
The UIL realigns districts every two years based on enrollment figures, which can lead to shuffling of teams and a breakup of longtime district rivals.
The districts take effect starting with the 2014 high school football season.
Most schools already knew where they would play because the UIL announced enrollment cutoff figures in December, but the final announcement often still bring a few surprises.
This year’s realignment includes reclassifying the largest schools as Class 6A. Schools now playing six-man football will move up to Class 1A.
To see a complete list of the district realignment, visit the UIL website.
