Ennis ISD’s athletic director has revealed the district was partially successful this morning in fighting worrisome realignment into a far East Texas district in a second appeal in front of the University Interscholastic League.

Athletic Director Jack Alvarez confirmed sports and activities other than high school football will revert to the 14-5A district, which is comprised of Arlington Seguin, Lancaster, Mansfield Lake Ridge, Mansfield Legacy, Mansfield Summit, Mansfield Timberview, Red Oak and Waxahachie.

Ennis High School Lion football will remain in the 16-5A district with Corsicana, Jacksonville, Lindale, Lufkin, Nacogdoches, Tyler and Whitehouse.

“They heard our case this morning and decided to give us some relief,” Alvarez said. “We feel very fortunate, and consider this as winning our case. We argued for everything, and we were granted everything but football.”

The UIL did not state a reason for keeping high school football in the 16-5A district, Alvarez said.
