2014-16 UIL Realignment
The chaos that is biennial UIL realignment is now a day old, so we take a look at some of the winners and losers from the state's governing body's re-classification and re-districting efforts.
The number of the classification will be different. A couple of new faces will arrive. But after Monday's biennial UIL realignment, it's official: East Texas' District of Doom is alive and well.
Ever since the UIL released conference cutoff numbers for the 2014-16 realignment and reclassification back in December, all of East Texas was anticipating where longtime rivals Longview and Lufkin would fit.
Here are the new 2014-16 districts for East Texas schools in our coverage area. The realignments for Classes 6A and 5A are for football and basketball, while the other classifications' realignments are for football only.

Every two years the University Interscholastic League reshuffles the deck, placing schools in new classifications and districts by using updated enrollment figures.
