Laredo High School Football realignment

From The Nueces County Star

Every two years, the University Interscholastic League does its thing and reorganizes all of the schools in its five classifications based on enrollment changes. It's called realignment, and it remains one of the greatest mysteries of mankind.

At least until Thursday's big reveal.

"When I was on the board of directors for the Texas High School Coaches Association we had a UIL guy come talk to us and said that not even the Secret Service knows what the realignment is going to be," Tuloso-Midway athletic director and football coach Joe Sendejar said. "They just try and keep it as equitable as possible."

Sendejar knows that doesn't always happen in terms of travel and the grouping of geographical rivals in the same district. He anticipates the Warriors in a lineup similar to the one from before the last realignment, which included Laredo Cigarroa, Martin and Nixon.

T-M is likely to be joined by local cohorts Alice, Calallen and Flour Bluff, but he won't know for sure for another five days.


  1. Would not be an issue if Laredo had consolidated school districts.

    Another reason for change.

  2. yea but then we'd only have one half of the heavily-salaried top brass. Aha, I see what you mean.
