UIL releases cut off numbers; Abilene High moving to Class 5A

Local Sports

The University Interscholastic League released the conference cutoff numbers and preliminary enrollment figures for the 2022-2024 reclassification and realignment on Wednesday.

For the first time in history, Abilene is not going to have a school in the state’s largest classification.

Abilene High is dropping down to Class 5A starting next Fall, according to the new numbers. In football, that means the Eagles are going to play in Class 5A Division I.

So, what about Cooper and Wylie?

The Cougares and the Bulldogs are staying put in Class 5A, but Cooper is dropping down to Division II in football. You can expect Cooper and Wylie to be in the same football district for the next two seasons.
