University Interscholastic League

There was little change for Godley High School when the University Interscholastic League announced new athletic districts on February 1, 2024.  

The announcement was part of the UIL’s biennial reclassification and realignment process used to determine athletic and academic competition districts for the 2024-25 and 2025-26 school years.  

For football only, the Wildcats will continue to compete in Division II of Class 4A, which is split at the beginning of the season into two divisions based on student enrollment.  District 4 opponents will be Fort Worth Benbrook, Fort Worth Dunbar, Glen Rose, Hillsboro and Venus. 

For basketball and volleyball, the Wildcats and Ladycats will compete in District 12 with Alvarado, Ferris, Hillsboro, Kennedale, Venus and Waxahachie Life.

The new athletic districts will not be final until the UIL completes action on appeals later this month.  Districts for other sports and academics will be announced later.  

“Competition is always challenging regardless of classification, and we hope to offer students the opportunity to learn character, leadership and sportsmanship regardless of the class or district that we are assigned,” commented GHS Principal Kurtis Flood. 

In October, Godley ISD submitted high school enrollment data of 827 students – ultimately keeping it firmly in the Class 4A classification. Class 4A now includes schools with populations between 545 and 1,314 with football only divided between Divisions I (957-1,314) and II (545-956). 

In 2022, GHS was in Class 4A with 712 students for the realignment process. For the biennium, the classification was composed of schools with student populations between 545 and 1,299. 

“Our student groups already compete at a very high level, and we are confident that our athletic teams, band, academic team and cheerleaders will continue to find success," said GISD Superintendent Dr. Rich Dear.

The UIL, a division of the University of Texas at Austin, is the rulemaking body for educational extracurricular academic, athletic, and music contests in Texas public schools. The league aims to provide healthy, character building, educational activities carried out under rules providing for good sportsmanship and fair play for all participants.
