The University Interscholastic League (UIL) announced realignments this morning, and Lake Highlands High will play in a new district beginning fall of 2018 – 8-6A instead of 9-6A. UIL added Molina (enrollment 2,220) and Duncanville (4,451) and removed Jesuit and Coppell, leaving us with 8 in our district. We will continue to compete against Skyline (4,568), W.T. White (2,241), Richardson High (2,775), Berkner (2,659) and Pearce (2,400). LHHS’ “snapshot” enrollment for UIL redistricting was 2,811.
The changes leave some hoping Head Coach and Athletic Coordinator Lonnie Jordan will find a way to add Jesuit to the Wildcat non-district schedule in 2018. Jesuit have become one of LH’s leading rivals in multiple sports – especially football, where Jesuit Head Coach Paul Maturi is an LHHS grad and former coach.
