Several Conroe ISD high schools will see their football, basketball and volleyball programs compete in a new athletic district beginning this fall after the University Interscholastic League announced athletic realignments for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school years Feb. 3. The UIL governs athletic, academic and musical competition for the state's public schools.

The UIL realignments will affect Conroe, Grand Oaks, Oak Ridge, The Woodlands and The Woodlands College Park high schools—all categorized within the UIL's Conference 6A due to their enrollment sizes exceeding 2,200 students. Five Klein ISD schools previously aligned with CISD will now be grouped with Tomball ISD's high schools.

Grand Oaks, which was first assigned to Conference 5A after opening with around 1,600 students in 2018, was shifted to Conference 6A this year after its enrollment increased 75% since the previous alignment, according to UIL information.

The new UIL alignment gathers those five CISD schools as well as Willis High School into a new competitive group, District 13. Conroe, Oak Ridge, The Woodlands and The Woodlands College Park were all previously assigned to Conference 6A, District 15 alongside the KISD schools.

Caney Creek High School's district assignments were unaffected by the UIL's realignment, although its districts will see slight changes overall. The 2,130-student school falls just below the UIL's cutoff for Conference 6A, and Caney Creek remains within Conference 5A, District 20 for volleyball and basketball and Conference 5A, District 8, Division 1 for football.

According to the UIL, realignment information for academics, baseball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field, and wrestling is expected to be released in March. More information on the UIL's alignments can be found here.
