(Guadalupe County) – The University Interscholastic League announced its classification and district alignments for the 2018-19 and 19-20 school years Thursday morning, with significant changes in store for the athletic programs in the Seguin, Navarro, and Marion ISDs.

The UIL is the governing body of extracurricular activities for Texas public schools, and redraws its classifications and district alignments every two years based on high school enrolment numbers turned in by member school districts.

Here are the UIL realignment recaps for each of the schools in the KWED/ Seguin Daily News coverage area:

Seguin

Seguin remains in the 5A classification, which falls within the enrollment range of 1,150 – 2,189. Football programs at the 5A and 6A levels will be split into two divisions for regular season district play for the first time after waiting until the playoffs to split in recent years.

Seguin’s football team will compete in District 12-5A-Division I, and in Region III for the next two seasons. The Matadors are joined by Dripping Springs (the only holdover from Seguin’s previous district) and six Austin ISD programs – McCallum, Travis, Reagan, Lanier, Johnson, and Crockett.

Seguin’s non-district football schedule will include the continuation of the Guadalupe River Bowl against traditional rival New Braunfels, as well as games against two San Antonio private schools – Antonian and Central Catholic.

In the non-football sports, Seguin stays in District 26-5A, and in Region IV, but with a few new opponents. Boerne-Champion and Kerrville-Tivy are the only holdovers from the current configuration. The rest of the new district includes Harlandale, three San Antonio ISD schools – Kennedy, Memorial, and McCollum, as well as Judson ISD programs Wagner and Veterans Memorial.

Navarro

Navarro’s football program stays in District 13-4A-Division II, but the alignment comes with notable changes for the next two seasons. The Panthers’ annual playoff nemesis and fellow Region IV powerhouse Cuero joins the new district, which retains Wimberley, Llano, and Bandera, and adds Austin-Eastside Memorial.

Navarro’s non-district football schedule will feature games against Gonzales, Marion, Marble Falls, La Grange, and Giddings.

Navarro’s non-football programs will compete in District 30-4A, and remain in Region IV. The other members include Cuero, Gonzales, La Vernia, Pleasanton, Poteet, and San Antonio-Brooks.

Marion

Marion football lands in the newly configured District 15-3A-Division I, which is part of Region IV. San Antonio-Cole and Universal City-Randolph are the only holdovers from the Bulldogs’ previous football district. Other members of the new district include Cotulla, Jourdanton, Karnes City, and Lytle.

Marion’s non-district football schedule will include games against Luling, Navarro, Blanco, and Hondo.

Marion’s non-football sports will compete in District 26-3A, and remain in Region IV. Universal City-Randolph is the only holdover from the Bulldogs’ current district. Marion’s new 26-3A opponents for the next two school years include Comfort, Ingram-Moore, San Antonio-BASIS Shavano, San Antonio-Cole, and San Antonio-Gervin Academy.
