UIL announces realignment

February 2, 2012

Forsan's moving down, Coahoma's moving west and Big Spring is pretty much staying put.

The University Interscholastic League's biennial realignment of Texas high schools didn't produce many changes in classifications, but likely added plenty of expenses to school's travel budgets.

This latest realignment takes effect with the 2012-2013 school year.
The school affected the least by realignment is Big Spring High School, which will remain in Class 3A for the next two years.
