UIL announces cutoff numbers: Bobcats moving up to 4A, Vidor going down to 4A

The University Interscholastic League announced their cutoffs for each classification for the upcoming district realignments that will come the first Monday in February.

All of the schools across Texas turned in their enrollment numbers in October and the UIL broke them down and adjusted their numbers.

Of course, most everyone knows that the football season is broken down into division 1s and 2s with the exception of Class 6A.

One thing for certain, this year’s numbers certainly changed things up for Orange County schools.

Orangefield will be moving up from Class 3A Division I to Class 4A Division II. Vidor will be moving down from Class 5A Division II to Class 4A Division I. Bridge City will move down from Class 4A Division I to Class 4A Division II. Deweyville will be moving down from Class 2A Division I to Class 2A Division II.

There will be plenty of other moves as well across Southeast Texas.

Moving up from Class 4A Division I to Class 5A Division II will be Lumberton. West Hardin will move up from Class 2A Division II to Class 2A Division I.

Beaumont United will move down from Class 6A down to Class 5A Division I. Warren will move down from Class 3A Division I to Class 3A Division II and Hull-Daisetta will go from Class 2A Division I to Class 2A Division II.

Now everyone will wait to see what happens when the UIL sets up the new districts in February.

In football, the 4A Division II district could have WO-S, Bridge City and Orangefield in it as well as Silsbee, Hamshire-Fannett and Hardin-Jefferson.

In all of the other sports, there could be a district featuring mainly Orange County schools with Bridge City, Little Cypress-Mauriceville, Orangefield, West Orange-Stark and Vidor all competing against one another.

It should be interesting indeed.
