Slaton, smaller schools to start UIL fall sports on regular schedule

Slaton, Roosevelt, Southland and Wilson high schools will not see a change to their football and other sports seasons schedules, which COVID-19 has already partially affected.

The University Interscholastic League announced Tuesday (July 21) an updated sports schedule for fall sports.

Conferences 1A-4A, which all four schools fall under, will start their football practices Aug. 3, then first game of the year Aug. 27. District certification deadline will be Nov. 7 while the State championship will be Dec. 16-19.

Band will be able to start their contests/show curriculum Sept. 7, while Region contest deadline will be Dec. 10. Slaton High School, Class 3A, can compete up to the Area contest this year as UIL alternates State years based on classification.

Classes 5A-6A will start their seasons a few weeks later, with first day of practice Sept. 7. Their first game will be Sept. 24, with District certification Dec. 5. They will compete for the State championship this season in January 2021.
