Saturday The Rangers won the first meeting 4336 on Jan 16 NBHS in 265A Jh By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor The move to District 265A figures to ele vate the caliber of competition in most sports for New Braunfels High School Still Unicorn coaches and school officials say that along with the challenges come ben efits In itSjbiennial the University League the enrollment limit for 4A schools at New Braunfels which currently competes in District 284A submitted an enrollment of which placed it right above the cutoff line The UILs new setup has the Unicorns replacing San Marcos in 265A The San Anto nio district includes Converse Judson Roo sevelt Lee Madison MacArthur Churchill and Seguin Texas coaches widely consider 265A to be among the premier districts in the state Judson and Roosevelt are the defending Class 5A state champions in football Charles Bradberry NBISD superintendent said that while the realignment pits the Uni corns against a higher level of competition it also opens opportunity We will be competing in a real class dis Bradberry said It may be the class district in the state Its strong not only in foot ball but many other areas MacArthur has one of the top marching bands and Churchill is always strong in academics We will be going up against some of the best and that should make us Larger game crowds is one of the benefits Bradberry said the Unicorns can expect to reap because of a greater fan base at San Anto nio schools The district also attracts more media attention and athletes get more exposure to college recruiters However playing the likes of Judson and Roosevelt schools whose enrollment are double and triple that of many 4A schools leaves the Unicorns at an obvious disadvan tage Athletic Director and head football coach Tim Kingsbury understands what lies ahead and said the staff and players are ready for the test We know what to Kingsbury said Its a tough district but nothing will change District 265A New Braunfels Converse Judson MacArthur Seguin Lee Madison Roosevelt Churchill for us Well keep doing the same things weve been doing and setting the same not like we havent been in 5A before In 1991 we made the playoffs and beat Lee So were going into this with a positive New Braunfels will be among the smallest Class 5A schools in the state Judson has an enrollment of about compared to for NBHS Beyond football NBHS

depth We have to look at it as a The Unicorns soccer tennis cross country and volleyball programs each of which have been successful over the years continue to fare well The track programs in 285A are perenially among the best in the region meaning the Unicorns will have their work cut out Cougars Rangers stay put in 284A By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Not a whole lot changed for Smithson Val ley and Canyon high schools under the UILs latest realignment Other than the departure of neighboring New Braunfels and the arrival of Gonzales and Del Valle the Rangers and Cougars emerged in about the same situation in 284A Bastrop Lockhart and Hays are each back to keep the district strong Athletic directors Larry Nowotny and Lar ry Hill said the main concern at this point was scheduling football games The districts move from a sixteam format to a seventeam alignment means each team must fill an open date during the district schedule Finding an opponent for that open slot isnt so easy We expected to see a six or eightteam said Hill head football coach and at Smithson Valley Seven teams means you have to go out and find someone to match up with you on that same week That can be dif ficult if youre trying to schedule a team six or seven games into the district schedule There arent too many schools in the same situation to choose from out Hill said the Rangers open date will be the fifth district game and lie has tentatively filled it with Austin Anderson Nowotny said the Cougars were still search ing for an opponent to accept a match for the seventh week of district He added that he was not surprised by the UILs latest changes and that Del Valle and Gonzales will bring quality athletic programs to the district Its business as usual for Nowotny said Weve played Gonzales for the past couple of years so were familiar with them to an extent Del Valle is a good program that has speed at the skill T h e Cougars will leave behind their clas s i c matchups with crosstown rival New Braunfels Thats kind of disap pointing because weve had some great ballgames over the Nowotny said The rivalry was always fun 10 go and attracted a big crowd and great Canyon and
