Ball High vs. Texas City football

The Texas City Stingarees run onto the field through smoke before a game against Ball High at Kermit Courville Stadium in Galveston on Friday, Nov. 8, 2019.

The University Interscholastic League on Tuesday released its biennial conference cutoff numbers, with one Galveston County football team directly affected and the ripples outside of the proverbial local pond affecting most of the others.

Turning in an enrollment of 1,821 and with the UIL’s 2020-22 Class 5A, Division I range being 1,900-2,219, the Texas City Stings football team will find themselves dropping to a Class 5A, Division II district when realignment is announced in February.
