UIL: State releases cutoff numbers for new 6 classification alignment

AUSTIN — The University Interscholastic League released the conference cutoff numbers for the 2014-2016 reclassification and realignment on Monday and although the UIL is moving to six classifications, the new numbers don’t affect any of the nine schools in the Golden Circle — other than adding an A to their classifications.

The new classifications are based on moving 6-man football to 1A footbball and bumping everyone else up, while cutting off the largest classification — Class 6A — at 2,100 students.

In the Golden Circle, all Class A schools will simply move to Class 2A, and 2A schools will be classified in 3A next year. Corsicana will move from Class 4A to Class 5A.

The new district alignments will be released in February.

The 2014-16 alignments will be released on Feb. 3 for football and basketball.

Those realignments could affect teams in the Golden Circle, especially Corsicana, which is currently playing in District 16-4A, a district loaded with teams from East Texas.

There is speculation Corsicana will be moved to a nw district when the district alignments are released on Feb. 3 for football and basketball.

District alignments for other activities will be released in the order of their seasons.

More information about UIL alignments can be found at http://www.uiltexas.org/alignments.

  • 4-115-14CHSBBMinniear.jpg CHS Baseball: Lindale haunts Tigers again with critical 4-0 win

    Lindale has been poison to Corsicana all year.
    The Eagles won a bizarre game in Lindale to keep the Tigers out of the football playoffs and ruined the boys basketball season with two gut-wrenching wins in the final week of the season.
    They did it again Tuesday, beating the Tigers 4-0 at Price Field to take over second place in the District 16-4A race.
    Lindale (6-2) had one big inning to hand Corsicana (5-3) its second loss in a row.

  • I4-15-14Kellysigns.jpg GC Volleyball: Kerens' Kelly signs with Paris Junior College

    She prayed about it. She lost sleep about it. And she prayed about it some more.
    That's just a glimpse of what Marqueshia Kelly went through before deciding to turn down a half dozen basketball scholarships and accept a scholarship to play volleyball at Paris Junior College.
    The journey might have been a little sleepless, but in the end it wasn't that tough for Kelly, who is a multi-sport star at Kerens.
    “I followed my heart,'' she said on Tuesday just moments after signing a letter-of-intent to play volleyball at Paris in front of family, coaches and friends.
