A look at UIL's district realignment for next two school years
The University Interscholastic League realigned its districts Monday morning.
Much of the biennial practice is focused on football but it encompasses all UIL sports.
A few notes on the new districts:
- The toughest football district in Houston might be 21-6A.
It features Atascocita, Beaumont West Brook, Humble, Kingwood, Summer Creek, C.E. King and back-to-back state champion North Shore.
West Brook, North Shore and Atascocita have played deep into the postseason the last few seasons and Humble, Kingwood and C.E. King made the playoffs last year. Summer Creek took a step back in 2019 but has been strong in recent years.
- Shadow Creek is moving up to 6A and it’s no surprise where the Class 5A Division I football champions land - in District 23-6A with Alief Taylor, Hastings, Elsik, Alvin, Strake Jesuit and Pearland and Dawson.
George Ranch was grouped with these schools the last two years and is now in 20-6A with the all-Fort Bend ISD group.
- Grand Oaks is making its varsity football debut in 2020. It joins its Conroe ISD counterparts Conroe, Oak Ridge, The Woodlands and College Park in 13-6A. Willis is also in this district. Willis moving up to 6A was one of the more surprising moves from October’s enrollment and cutoff numbers.
