While Harper High School’s conference designation may have changed from 1A to 2A as part of the recent UIL realignments, many of the Longhorns’ opponents will remain familiar.
For football, Harper has been placed in District 14, Division 1, with six other schools — Brackettville Brackett, Center Point, Johnson City LBJ, Junction, Mason and Sabinal.
Meanwhile, the basketball assignment for District 27-2A looks similar, but there are a few changes. While the core remains Harper, Center Point, Johnson City, Junction and Mason, added to this list is San Saba, while Brackettville and Sabinal go elsewhere.
“Realignment didn’t affect Harper much,” said HHS athletic director and head football coach Cody White. “We basically stay the same.
He mentioned that being the UIL’s only seven-team district in 2A Division I “makes it tough. But the goal is to win them all, anyways.”
