Using mapping software, the University Interscholastic League has announced its new districts for the next two years staring with the upcoming season.  How big is this biennial realignment?  FOX Sports Southwest covers it LIVE.

There are changes in 5A where football-only 5A Division I and Division II districts have been created, with 16 districts in each division instead of the 32 districts in 6A.  Schools with enrollment numbers 1,840-2,189 will be in 5A Division I. Schools at 1,150-1,839 will be in Division II.

The UIL also pointed-out on Twitter Thursday that there will be 18 new schools.

There’s really no way for us to breakdown every district, but we thought it would be good to give you free links to local media analysis.
