Changes are coming to Texas High School athletics that are going to affect teams in El Paso. At a coaches meeting Thursday at Clint High School, Assistant UIL Athletic Director Peter Contreras announced that a sixth conference will be added but the change will not affect football or basketball.

"We are simply, in some sports, creating a sixth conference to have those six-man schools, or division 1 and 2, to have their own state champion, one state champion per conference," said Contreras.

He added that Districts 2 through 5 will all move up in name only. For example, schools like Coronado and Montwood will be in the 6A Division. Hanks and Canutillo become 5A schools.

Below is the official UIL release describing all of the upcoming rule changes:
