AUSTIN -- The University Interscholastic League says four schools from each Class 4A district will qualify for the playoffs beginning this fall.
The move to four qualifying teams per district mirrors the
playoff structure used in Class 5A. Superintendents of Class 4A
schools approved the change by a 186-38 vote.
Under the latest UIL alignment, there are 229 Class 4A schools.
In football, the change would have meant more than half of all 4A
schools qualifying for the postseason last fall.
The change must still be approved by Texas Education Agency
Commissioner Robert Scott.
