Originally appeared on Vype.com
HOUSTON – The UIL released its new-look districts for the 2018-2020 seasons on Thursday morning.
Coaches from across the state waited in high anticipation to see where their programs would be placed and who could be the newest foes in district play come next fall.
CY-FAIR ISD HAS NEW LOOK
The biggest question going into the day for Houston-area schools was how would Cypress-Fairbanks ISD be broken up after opening its 11th and 12th high school recently.
The UIL decided to split the schools into two districts and into two different regions.
District 14-6A in Region II will comprise of Bridgeland, Bryan, Cypress Lakes, Cypress Park, Cypress Ranch, Cypress Springs, Cypress Woods, Langham Creek and Tomball Memorial.
District 17-6A in Region III will have defending state champion Cy-Fair, Cypress Creek, Cypress Ridge, Cypress Falls, Houston Memorial, Houston Northbrook, Houston Spring Woods, Houston Stratford and Jersey Village.
DISTRICT 21-6A PULLS IN BEAUMONT PROGRAMS
District 21-6A will have a completely new look in 2018.
Baytown Sterling, Beaumont West Brook, Channelview, Deer Park, North Shore, La Porte and C.E. King will make up this district. Also in this district will be the newly combined high school in Beaumont ISD, which will have students from Beaumont Central and Beaumont Ozen.
HUMBLE ISD GETS FOUR PROGRAMS TOGETHER
When Humble High School was going to Class 6A for the first time in program history, the feeling was it would be placed with fellow Humble ISD schools.
Humble was placed in District 22-6A with Atascocita, Summer Creek and Kingwood. Also in that district will be the Pasadena schools – Pasadena, Dobie, Memorial, Rayburn and South Houston.
