Two years after Cy-Fair ISD high schools were split into two separate competitive districts for the first time, the University Interscholastic League’s biennial realignment revealed earlier this week Cypress Falls High School will move to form an all-CFISD district once again in 2020-22.

The UIL’s Feb. 3 announcement applies to CFISD high school football, basketball and volleyball programs as follows:

District 16-6A

Bridgeland High School

Cypress Falls High School


Cypress Lakes High School

Cypress Park High School

Cypress Ranch High School

Cypress Springs High School

Cypress Woods High School

Langham Creek High School

District 17-6A

Cy-Fair High School

Cypress Creek High School

Cypress Ridge High School

Jersey Village High School

Memorial High School (Spring Branch ISD)

Northbrook High School (Spring Branch ISD)

Spring Woods High School (Spring Branch ISD)

Stratford High School (Spring Branch ISD)

District 16-6A will face Klein and Tomball ISD schools in the postseason, and District 17-6A’s postseason opponents will come from Houston ISD.

“UIL reclassification and realignment day is always an exciting time for all of our coaches in CFISD. This is the day that determines their ‘home’ for competition for the next two years,” CFISD Director of Athletics Ray Zepeda said in a press release. “We feel very fortunate that we were minimally impacted this cycle. The addition of Cy Falls to District 16 in Region II will be new for us but also allow a regular scheduling of some of the traditional rivalries that the school has been a part of throughout its history. Spring Branch ISD has been a great partner to us over the past two years and we look forward to continuing to compete with them in District 17 in Region III.”
