New UIL District Realignments announced
In February the UIL announced the new districts for all sports and every classification for Texas high schools. The UIL does this every two years and sets the districts by high school enrollment figures.
Sanger Indians football remains in Division II Class 4A. The district is made up of Aubrey (840 HS students), Bridgeport (628), Farmersville (625), Gainesville (863), Krum (668), Sanger (798) and Van Alstyne (570).
If the Indians make the playoffs, they would face District 6 schools in the playoffs in the first-round: Caddo Mills, Dallas Lincoln, Dallas Roosevelt, Quinlan Ford, Sunnyvale and Wills Point.
All other sports at Sanger High School will compete in District 7: Burkburnett, Gainesville, Sanger, Wichita Falls and Wichita Falls Hirschi. That’s a lot of travel distance for SHS volleyball, basketball, softball and baseball teams. District meets for track and cross country is just a one-time event.
Bi-District playoff opponents for District 7 for Sanger will be District 8: Bridgeport, Decatur, Krum, Lake Worth, River Oaks Castleberry and Springtown.
Sanger head football coach has already put together next year’s high school football schedule.
