LC-M, BC will travel farther in football; OF, WO-S in 5-team district

BEAUMONT — The University Interscholastic League released their new districts Monday morning.

There were few surprises.

Most knew already that Little Cypress-Mauriceville would be dropping down in classification but most didn’t know that Orangefield at West Orange-Stark would be competing in just a five-team football district.

The UIL created a new 6A conference, so LC-M is still considered Class 4A along with fellow Orange County schools Bridge City, Orangefield and WO-S.

The UIL broke up Class 4A into Division I and Division II football brackets while all the other sports remains the same in one big bracket.

In football, LC-M and Bridge City will compete in Class 4A Division I District 10-4A with the likes of Cleveland, Huffman, Jasper, Silsbee and Splendora. That means that Bear and Cardinal fans will be doing a lot more traveling for their district contests.

The biggest surprise came when Orangefield and WO-S found out they were competing in just a five-team Division II District 9-4A in football.

The Bobcats and Mustangs will be in a district that will also consist of Hamshire-Fannett, Hardin-Jefferson and Liberty. So that means that four out of the five teams will make the playoffs.

In all of the other sports, LC-M will just be basically replacing Buna in what was the old District 21-3A.

LC-M will join District 24-4A, which will also include Bridge City, H-F, H-J, Orangefield, Silsbee and WO-S.

In Class 5A, District 22-4A will consist of old 20-4A teams Vidor, Beaumont Ozen, Beaumont Central, Lumberton, Nederland and Port Nechews-Groves and newcomers Goose Creek Memorial and Baytown Lee.

Buna dropped down in classification. The Cougars will be in Class 3A Division I District 12-3A football and will be playing Anahuac, Buna, Hardin, Kirbyville, Kountze, Warren, East Chambers and Woodville.

Deweyville will compete in Class 3A Division II District 11-3A football with the likes of Newton, Corrigan-Camdeon, Crockett, Garrison and Hemphill.

In all of the other sports, Deweyville and Buna will play in District 23-3A against the likes of Anahuac, Hardin, Kirbyville, Kountze, Warren and East Chambers.

In Class 6A, District 21-6A will not change as Beaumont West Brook and Port Arthur Memorial will still take on Baytown Sterling, Channelview, Deer Park, North Shore and LaPorte.

WO-S and Orangefield will be in Region III in football. It is a four-district region with just five football teams in each district.

One irony is that the Mustangs and Bobcats will not be in the same region with the likes of Coldspring, which is in Region II in District 8-4A with Tarkington, Diboll, Huntington, Madisonville and Shepherd.
