Wildcats get four new teams in realignment -- New teams are: Sherman, Denison, Greenville, Royse City; gone are Longview, PT, Hallsville, Marshall

Gone are two hour trips to Marshall and Hallsville, but they have been replaced with treks to Sherman and Denison. 

Either way it seems like the University Interscholastic League biennial redistricting and reclassification has been pretty kind to Sulphur Springs.

Sulphur Springs stayed in 4A with an enrollment of 1,130. In the state class 4A was schools between 990 and 2,064 with that applying to 246 schools across the state of Texas.


UIL redistricting brings big changes to area small schools

The following is a list of the area schools and how they were affected by the UIL realignment which was released today.

Mount Vernon

Class 3A Region 2 District 15


Mount Vernon


North Lamar


Pleasant Grove

Just off the mark by a count of three, Mount Vernon will remain in Class 3A competition for another two years. Atlanta, Paris, North Lamar, Liberty-Eylau and Pleasant Grove will join them in Region 2 District 15.

“We were hoping for 2A,” said Mount Vernon athletic director and head football coach Charles Swann. “It didn't work out. We have been in this position for the past four years. We will be one of the smallest schools in 3A if not the smallest; however, we have good kids that don't mind hard work.”

Wildcats miss key scoring changes

TEXARKANA — After losing to Kennedale in a shootout, the Wildcats took on Texas High.

“We played T-High Friday night and won 1-0.  The goal came from Miguel Mejia and assisted by Gustavo Gallegos,” said Wildcat head soccer coach Andy Holt. “ It was nice to see that 1 goal stood up for us.  We then played Pleasant Grove on Saturday and tied 1-1 and lost in another shootout.  They scored the first goal.  We came back a few minutes later and scored to tie it up.  Oscar Martinez scored on a corner kick by Alejandro Arellano. We had 14 shots.  We dominated the play, but couldn't finish our opportunities.  That was the theme of the tournament for us.  We had 40 shots in three games to our opponents eight.  We have got to find the back of the net and when we do, we can't allow them to score.”

Y’Barbo commits to North Texas
