Bearcats, Ladycats staying in 5A

It was close, by eight students


The Aledo Bearcats and Ladycats narrowly avoided moving up in classification when the University Interscholastic League announced its enrollment cutoff numbers Friday morning, Dec. 8.

For the next two years, at least, Aledo will remain in Class 5A. The cutoff for Class 6A is a minimum of 2,275 students and Aledo High School reported 2,267 to the UIL.

The Bearcats will also continue to compete in Class 5A Division I in football. They won the championship at that level in 2022 and are in the semifinals this season.
