Moreover, for some events such as team tennis or swimming and divingthe UIL organizes all participating schools into Conference 6A and Conference 5A, with the latter encompassing all schools not meeting the Conference 6A enrollment requirements. Within each conference, the UIL separates the schools in regions, and then further separates the regions into districts for various contests.
The districts are numbered from 1 in far west Texas to 32 in south Texas.

There are always 32 districts in Conference 6A and Conference 5A, but the smaller conferences may have numbers skipped based on the number of schools in the conference. No more than 10 schools are permitted in a single district unless all schools and the UIL consent otherwise; the preference is for an even number of schools in each district 6, 8, 10 though in some cases travel issues may prevent such.
Previously, schools were permitted to request to be placed in a higher conference than their enrollment would otherwise dictate, usually to play at a higher level of competition.
The "play up" rule was later eliminated for competition reasons, but has been retained for geographic reasons where playing at the current level would create a travel hardship for the schooland where school districts with eight or more high schools could keep all or most of them in the same conference.
However, the school must then participate at the higher conference in all UIL events in which it does participate. Each type of contest has different regions and competitors, as there is no requirement that a school participate in all UIL events — some small rural schools do not participate in football or choose six-man over man, while some magnet schools do not field athletic teams but participate in academic events only.
Unlike the college ranks or other states, the regions and districts are not permanently set, but are redrawn biennially by the UIL behind closed doors in an attempt to keep schools of similar sizes within a certain distance of their geographic area when attending competitions, and to adjust for the changing enrollments of schools moving schools with increased attendance up in conference and those with decreased attendance down and new schools opening.
The main redrawing of regions and districts takes place on February 1 of even-numbered years and the final allocation, especially relating to high school footballis the subject of much pre-announcement anticipation and speculation as to which schools move up or down and the final composition of the districtsbut as new schools open or smaller schools close or disband programs, interim adjustments can be made. The changing districts and regions have produced unusual results — for example, the Conference 5A boys' basketball championship featured champion DeSoto from Region II defeating Cedar Hill from Region I, notwithstanding that the schools are in neighboring districts.
Football[ edit ] In Conference 6A, the top four teams from each district are eligible for the playoffs.

The two eligible teams with the highest student enrollment for its district are seeded in the Division I playoff bracket, and the remaining two teams with the lower enrollment are seeded in the Division II playoff bracket. This method is supposed to prevent matchups between large and small schools within a classification, although in practice this is not always the case — for example, in the playoffs, Southlake Carroll the Conference 5A Division I champion had a lower student enrollment than Cedar Hill the Conference 5A Division II champion.
For all other man conferences and for six-man football, the UIL divides schools into separate Division I large and Division II small districts at its bi-annual redistricting session in these cases, there are a maximum of 16 districts statewide, as opposed to the 32 in the larger conferences ; separate playoffs are held for each division with the top four teams top two in six-man from each district eligible.
Other major team sports[ edit ] In Conferences 6A and 5A, the top four teams from each district are eligible. A similar arrangement exists in Conferences 2A-4A, and for Conference 1A in all other team sports except basketball, only the top three teams are eligible. For Conference 1A basketball, similar to the six-man football setup the UIL divides schools into separate Division I large and Division II small districts prior to the beginning of the season, and separate playoffs are held for each division with the top two teams from each district eligible.
This arrangement exists because, in some small schools, basketball is the only team sport in which the school participates. For baseball and softball, at all levels except the state tournament, playoff rounds are best 2-of-3 only if both coaches agree; if they do not then the coaches flip a coin to decide the format of the playoff single game or two out of three series.
At the state tournament both the semifinals and finals are single-game format. Academics and other sports[ edit ] Advancement in these activities is dependent on the individual event involved.

Musical competition[ edit ] In musical competitions, schools are aligned into 33 regions the regions themselves are set not by the UIL, but by the Texas Music Educators Association. Advancement within musical competition is not based on direct competition against other schools.
Instead, musicians are compared against an established rubric this is comparable to conformation dog shows where dogs compete against the written standard for their breed, not against other dogs of differing breedsand all schools or individuals who are judged "Division 1" the highest level advance to the next level, except for state competition.
For marching band, schools compete against other schools in the same UIL conference. All schools of all conferences compete in region competition annually, as a fall semester activity.
However, in even-numbered years schools in Conferences 2A, 4A, and 6A can advance from region to area and state, and in odd-numbered years schools from Conferences 3A and 5A can advance from region to area and state, in addition to schools in Conference 1A may advance from region to state There are no Area contests for Conference 1A, only for 2A and up.
In order for bands to advance from Region to Area, they need to get an overall Division 1 from at least two Region judges, whether it be a,etc Townsend tore through the girls' 4A meters to set a new record in all classes in Hooker later went on to star at the University of Texas.
There was no problem with that. Townsend got a strong start and was in control of the race in the first 30 meters, leaving Houston Wheatley's Dominique Duncan a distant second at Townsend was lucky that the wind died down just long enough for her race to stand as a legal mark.

Gossett was only at the state track meet to watch a teammate compete. Gossett had finished fourth in her region and thought her high school track career was over. But then her coach got a phone call.1-5A District 4x200 girls Louisiana
Windthorst's Rachel Wolf hurt her leg in warmups and couldn't run. The girl listed as the first alternate didn't even bother to come to the meet. So that meant Gossett would run. But first she had to get a uniform, and she only had 20 minutes before the race was scheduled to start. She didn't have any track shoes so she borrowed a pair from a meet official, slipping them on just as the other runners were stepping into the starting blocks.
She took off at the gun and was right in the thick of the race until the last three hurdles and finished with a time of She was sixth -- but she wasn't last as two other girls pulled in behind her. Her only regret is that her parents didn't get to see it. They hadn't made the drive to Austin and she didn't even have time to tell them before the race. But they'll be proud even if they didn't get to see it," she said.
