Every two years the UIL realigns all 11 classifications and their respective districts to level out the number of teams in each division. 2020 is an alignment year and I’ve decided to have some fun with it.
In December the UIL released the cutoff numbers for each classification giving an idea of the number of teams in each division and where they would be playing for the next two seasons.
6A: 245 teams
5A DI: 128 teams
5A DII: 125 teams
4A DI: 93 teams
4A DII: 93 teams
3A DI: 105 teams
3A DII: 106 teams
2A DI: 97 teams
2A DII: 93 teams
So for the next couple of weeks, we’ll take a look at what each classification containing Concho Valley teams could look like next season. Let’s start at the bottom of 11-man with Class 2A Division II.
There are five schools in the area represented, Christoval, Eldorado, Menard, Miles, and the newest addition Junction, who is making the move down from 2A Division I. Menard opted to continue playing 11-man football despite not having the numbers to do so.
For the past two seasons, the four who have been in the division have all been in District 8-2A, along with Rocksprings, and that will likely be the case for two more years.
Without further ado, here is what each district could look like in 2020.
The only change to 8-2A would be the addition of Junction. The argument could be made for Rocksprings to potentially get paired with D’Hanis, La Pryor, and Sabinal to the south. However, the Angoras are just a hair closer to Eldorado, Menard, and Junction than the other three.
As for the five area teams, it almost seems like a lock that they will be competing against each other in a district next season. Miles, the furthest north, to Junction, the furthest south, is separated by 80 miles.
This is all speculation and the districts won’t officially be announced until February 3rd, 2020.
