UIL Delays Football and Volleyball for 5A & 6A Teams

Smiley face

The UIL has postponed the start of the high school fall sports season for Class 6A and 5A football and volleyball teams, an unprecedented decision as Texas remains a hotspot during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although numbers remain low in Hopkins County compared to other counties, all of our district opponents seem to have higher numbers in their corresponding counties. Sulphur Springs ISD will be able to start football and volleyball practices on September 7th, and games should resume for volleyball on September 14th, and football on September 24th.

This will delay the ends of the season as well, with football playoffs being pushed into January of 2021, and the volleyball state tournament being held December 11 & 12, instead of normally before Thanksgiving. These decisions are subject to change yet again, pending daily review by state and UIL officials.

At this time, it appears that districts sized 4A and under have no delays in their fall sports.
