The following is a list of the area schools and how they were affected by the UIL realignment which was released today.
Class 3A Region 2 District 15
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.”
