The UIL has announced Team Tennis district alignments for 2018-2019 and Grapevine moves from District 8 to District 7. At the same time we'll move from a four team district to one with eight schools.
Only three teams from last year's district will move with us. Richland moved up to Class 6-A. Birdville and Colleyville Heritage will join us, along with five teams previously in District 6.
The line-up will be Azle, Colleyville Heritage, Fort Worth Boswell, Fort Worth Chisolm Trail, Grapevine, Birdville, Saginaw and White Settlement Brewer. Of those, all but two were in the playoffs with us last year, with one - Chisolm Trail - making it as far as Regionals before losing to Wichita Falls Rider.
Rider, by the way, will find itself in an interesting district next year. They're joined by Wichita Falls, Abilene Cooper, Aledo and last year's 4-A state champion Abilene Wylie.
The playoffs begin October 17th, culminating in the State Tournament November 1st and 2nd. We'll see you there!
