FWISD Receives UIL Realignment Results

Fort Worth ISD athletic officials learned the fate of District schools with Monday’s UIL Reclassification and Realignment announcement. There weren’t any big surprises with district or region placement, according to FWISD Director of Athletics Lisa Langston. 

“Overall, it’s a good day,” she said. “We’re very pleased.”

Langston pointed out that Class 6A Paschal, which was placed in District 3, moved out of a district composed primarily of Arlington schools.  

“I’m excited for Paschal, our one 6A,” she said. “If nothing else, it’s almost like a renewed spirit, a new beginning with new faces. That part is very pleasing. In volleyball, Paschal competed well in the current district, but I can foresee some district championships.” 

The 5A divisions for football came out better than FWISD officials anticipated, Langston said. Any potential travel issues, which were a concern, were largely avoided. 

Arlington Heights football is in a district comprised of area schools except for Abilene Cooper. FWISD is well represented in 5A Division 2, District 4 with North Side, Polytechnic, South Hills, Southwest, Trimble Tech and Wyatt.

Several districts at the 5A and 4A level in basketball and volleyball are completely made up of FWISD schools. The reconfigured classifications and districts are set for two years, going through 2021-22 academic year.

“Regardless of where we’re placed, our coaches and student-athletes have to be ready to compete,” Langston said. “We’re pleased with how things lined up. Now we have to get prepared to face some new challenges.”
