UIL realignment shuffles area schools to new districts

Wagner High School is moving down to Class 5A, and many other area districts have new members.

The UIL released its realignment of districts for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years Thursday morning.

The district alignments determine which teams play each other for playoff spots each season. The realignment every two years makes sure that schools with similar enrollments are put together in each class level, then districts are formed to promote competitive balance and geographical proximity.
