UIL Realignment’s bi-annual festivities provide plenty of fireworks that reverberate across the Lone Star State.
Despite all the guesswork that’s done by many (yours truly included), the UIL always manages to throw a few curveballs our way every time.
Let’s take a look at Class 2A and see who won the day and who came away from realignment shaking their head.
Crawford: Crawford remains in what looks to be a wide-open Region II. With the departure of Valley View to 3A-Division II and former district rival San Saba to Region I, the door is opened up for the Pirates, who will be under a new head coach in 2020.
Refugio: The defending state champions are going to be fine regardless of the district they are in, but avoiding Shiner is probably nice. Add in the fact that the Bobcats will get to avoid a couple of long road trips down to the Rio Grande Valley as they are in 15-2A Division I and not District 16.
Hamlin: The Pied Pipers remain in Region II after breaking out and advancing to the state championship game a year ago. Hamlin, in a bit of a surprise, moves over to 5-2A Division II as it heads more towards the Lubbock area, while former district rival Albany sits in 8-2A Division II as it’ll head east and south in realignment.
Sudan: Expect the Hornets to be dominant in 2-2A Division II as they are joined by six-man move up Ropesville, New Home in just their third year of 11-man football, along with Bovina and Smyer, two playoff teams but far from elite at the 2A level.
