All-Katy district remains in 6A

Jordan to join Paetow in 19-5A

Posted

Although there were minor changes made going from the fall to the spring biennial realignment of the University Interscholastic League (UIL), not many will end up affecting the Katy schools

Prior to the last realignment, the last time all Katy schools called the same district home was the 2008-2010 alignment although that group only lasted those two years.

This time around, the all-Katy 19-6A will last another biennial realignment, keeping Katy, Cinco Ranch, Mayde Creek, Morton Ranch, Seven Lakes, Taylor and Tompkins in the fight for the top spot in the spring sports arena.

On the 5A stage, Paetow will also be remaining in its same district with teams from Brenham, Bryan, College Station and Magnolia. One addition will be the newest Katy school, Jordan High School, although only in increments.

When Katy ISD’s ninth high school opens up this fall in Fulshear, individual sports will be able to compete at the varsity level right away. All varsity team sports outside of football can start competing in the UIL in 2021.

Since a football team cannot join in the “middle” year of a biennial realignment, the Jordan Knights won’t play in a UIL-sanctioned football game until 2022.

Tompkins turned in the largest enrollment out of Katy ISD, checking in at 4,018 students. Seven Lakes was next with 3,767, then Katy at 3,466.5 who was ahead of Cinco Ranch’s 3,257.

Taylor High School turned in an enrollment of 2,915, Mayde Creek registered 2,892.5 and Morton Ranch had 2,567.5 students on snapshot day while Paetow (2,179) and Jordan (1,586.69) remain in Class 5A for another two years.
