There will be a lot of coaches across the state that won’t get much sleep tonight.
The tossing, turning and late-night pacing will be a result of the University Interscholastic League’s release of its biennial realignment and reclassification at 9 a.m. tomorrow.
For the first time, the UIL released the classification cut-off numbers before the new classes and districts are released. So that means we get to have all sorts of district-guessing fun. One of our distinguished colleagues has already taken a stab at it, so please check that out.
What I’m going to look is Denton’s 6A district. Guyer moves up to 6A this year, joining Ryan in the same district for the first time since the 2008-10 alignment.
I took a look at the numbers from Region I and created a map with the schools that are projected to be in the state’s largest classification. Now, it’s not exact and all I did was look at the Region I schools moving up from 5A (formerly Class 4A) and the schools going down to 5A.
You have any guesses for the new district? Maybe an eight-team district with the Keller schools? A seven-team district with the Lewisville schools?
Feel free to take a blind shot in the dark like the rest of us and comment below with your guesses.
