UIL district realignment announced

The UIL announced their district realignment this morning amid much fanfare, but the Wildcats will have the same opponents in District 9 5-A that we’ve faced the past two years save one – J.J. Pearce added enough students to bump to 5-A. (They’ll replace Samuell, which moves to 4A). We haven’t had Pearce with us in 5A since 2006.

The biggest change for us will be playoff pairings. For the past two years, our first round opponent came from the Garland schools. This time, we’ll face the tougher Plano and Allen  teams. With their much larger enrollment, they have a bigger pool of talent to choose from, and it shows in their playoff success rate. (The cutoff for 5A was about 2,090. LHHS currently has 1,663 students and LHFC has 718, for a total of 2,381. Plano East has over 6,000.)

Of course, going head-to-head against the Plano schools is nothing new for LH. We faced them in district play for years and matched up well. Here’s a look at our district opponents since the year 2000. Go Cats!
