Uvalde High School will face new district sports opponents beginning next season. Under the new alignment announced Monday by the University Interscholastic League, UHS will vie in District 14-4A Division I for football and in District 30-4A for all the other sports.

UHS’s new district football opponents include Boerne, La Vernia, Pleasanton and Somerset.

For most of the other sports, UHS’s district opponents include Carrizo Springs, Crystal City, Hondo and Pearsall.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to enter 4A and to compete against quality competition in our new districts,” said Uvalde High School head coach and athletic director R.T. Gonzales.

“We are happy about less travel and that we will be playing schools similar to our size,” said Gonzales. “Right now, we are competing against one high school with a student enrollment of 2,823 students. Three other schools have over 2,000 students. Compare that to our 1,195 student enrollment, and it is easy to see the challenge we have faced. Hopefully, this new classification and alignment will level the playing field for our athletes. “I like the progress we have made in each of our sports programs. With one more off-season, we will solidify our culture and standard,” said Gonzales. “Regardless of who we play, we have a standard and expectations we are working to achieve.”
