Mike Says:
Three of the four Class 4A championship game participants (Austin Lake Travis, Waco Midway and Manvel) all look to be moving up to Class 4A.  Looking at Region I, the little Southwest Conference stays alive in District 2 with Abilene Cooper on the edge of the cutoff.  District 7 looks to have some changes.  Denton Guyer moves down to 4A while Denton Ryan moves up.  Also, the Flower Mound schools move over from District 8.  In Region II, District 11 will welcome in the two Rockwall schools to go with the Mesquite schools, Tyler Lee and Longview.  District 15 gets tougher with the Conroe schools, Lufkin and The Woodlands bringing in the Spring schools.  In Region III, District 19 would be interesting with Bryan and A&M Consolidated teaming up with the Katy schools.  District 23 will drop only a few of the Fort Bend schools.  They will leave 8 ,which is the UIL cutoff, where they cannot bring in more schools if one ISD has 8 or more.   In Region IV, I like district 25 with the addition of Smithson Valley.  The last 4 districts are almost all Valley schools.

Chris Says:
Austin Lake Travis, Smithson Valley, New Braunfels Canyon, Manvel, Denton Ryan - we are talking a lot of solid teams making the move up to 5A.  If LT does get placed in 5A, they are putting their five straight title run on the line.  What looked like a sure bet if they stayed in 4A is at definite risk when they play with the larger schools.  I do think these districts look to make a lot of sense from a regional standpoint.   I also like the Katy teams with the Bryan/College Station schools.  The combination of teams in District 15 looks to provide a lot of fireworks North of Houston as well.

Don't forget about the LIVE UIL Realignment Chat as they new districts are announced. Come participate on February 2nd at 9:00am. Post your comments here or call the voicemail line 713-568-6361 to tell the state what you think about the proposed realignment.
