New UIL Realignments
The University Interscholastic League released its district alignments for 2016-18 today for all classifications. Except for one minor change, the Paris Wildcats will continue to see the same UIL district configuration for the next two school years.
Paris remains in District 7-4A Division 1 for football only. That district sees a swap of Pittsburg (which drops into Division 2) for Anna (up from Division 2). Other members remain constant: Paris, North Lamar, Liberty-Eylau, Princeton, and Quinlan Ford.
The alignment announced for basketball remains the same with a number change. The current 15-4A is now 14-4A with the same members: Paris, NL, Pitt, L-E, Atlanta, and Pleasant Grove. District alignments for other sports will be released later, but it is expected that they will follow the basketball alignments for all sports except soccer and swimming. See 4A-1 football alignments. See 4A basketball alignments.
