The University Interscholastic League has released the classifications numbers for realignment for 2014 through 2016. Texas high schools turned in their snapshot of enrolled students in October. The actual realignments will not be released by the UIL until February 3, 2014. Releasing the classification breaks will provide school officials to begin preparing their non-district schedules prior to realignments being released.
A new six-A classification has been created and schools with 2100 or more students will be lumped into the new class. Five A schools will include high schools with enrollment of 1060 to 2099 students. Four A schools will include high school enrollments of 465 to 1059 students, three A schools will include enrollments of 220 to 464 students, two A schools, 105 to 219 students, and one A schools, enrollments of 104.9 students and below. In football, all one A schools will be eligible to play six man football.
Ballinger turned in an enrollment of 302 students. That number will place the Bearcats into Class 3A Division 2, which includes schools with enrollments of 220-314 students. Other area schools in 3A Division 2 include Eastland, Colorado City, Cisco, and Coleman.
Winters, with an enrollment of 149, and Miles, with an enrollment of 129, will fall into Class 2A Division 2. Class 2A Division 2 includes schools with enrollments of 105 to 157 students. Other area schools in 2A Division 2 include Hamlin, Haskell, Albany, Ranger, and Roscoe. Munday turned in an enrollment of 104 students, but by choice, will play 11 man football.
Bronte turned in an enrollment of 89 students. Bronte has previously played 11 man football on a waiver. It is unknown if Bronte will elect to play 6 man or 11 man football.
This story will be updated with other area schools as more information on enrollment numbers is received.
