UIL realignment brings changes for 2 CISD high schools


University Interscholastic League realignment results released in December leave Canyon High School as a 4A Division I school, places Randall High School as a 4A Division I school and West Plains High School as a 4A Division II school. The classifications will be in effect beginning in fall 2022.

In December, the University Interscholastic League released preliminary enrollment figures based on the expected number of students submitted by school districts in Texas. This information was used to reclassify and realign the competitive districts beginning Fall 2022.

According to the UIL website, Canyon High School will remain a 4A Division I school, Randall High School will drop down and be reclassified as a 4A Division I school and West Plains High School will open as a 4A Division II school. 

This will be entertaining for fans as we will compete against our sister schools for district championships,” Athletic Director Toby Tucker said. “It will also be more fan-friendly with travel, and a large number of our games will remain in the metro area.” 

Canyon and Randall High will compete in the same district for the first time in over four years.

As always, we have high expectations for all of our programs,” Tucker said. “I’m excited to see each of our schools compete, and new traditions and rivalries will be established.” 

More information about the reclassification and realignment can be found on the UIL website.
