UIL reclassification should benefit LC-M programs

ORANGE — It will be February, 2014 before Southeast Texas schools know what districts they will be in officially in the University Interscholastic League’s Realignment but Little Cypress-Mauriceville will be the local school that should benefit the most after the UIL put out its reclassification and realignment cutoff figures for 2014-2016 Monday.

The Battlin’ Bears will actually not drop a classification. They will stay in Class 4A since the UIL is creating a new Class 6A.

The Bears will make Class 4A by falling just three students short of being in Class 5A.

The UIL will still have Division iI and Division II state champions in football only.

Bridge City, along with Silsbee could be in a 4A Division I football district with the Bears with the 4A Division I football districts consisting of schools with enrollment of 686-1,059. Other schools that could possibly be in the football district with those three include the likes of Splendora and Huffman.

The 4A Division II local football district could consist of the likes of Orangefield, West Orange-Stark, Hamshire-Fannett and Hardin-Jefferson. Buna will go down to Class 3A Division II in football. Schools like Liberty and Anahuac could be in the football district with WO-S and Orangefield.

In all other sports, LC-M will be in a big district that should also include Bridge City, Orangefield, WO-S, H-F and H-J with a couple more schools likely in the mix. Enrollment figures for Class 4A in all the other sports is 465-1,059.

However, no one will know how the district will completely shape up until the UIL releases the new districts, regionas, and divisions the first week in February.
