Re: Middle School classifications
It's because UIL doesn't realistically care all that much about middle school classifications. They don't really have a reason to since there are no state championships to worry about, and I know in our 3A the MS kids sometimes play schools bigger than us. Really the only competitive events that the size really effects is music as far as I know - which isn't even that many UIL events... It effects Honor Band, OPS, and Region Auditions more than it does them.
As far as being the only 2C into a 3A, we have like 3 or 4 of those in our region now. The odd one that we have now is a 3C feeding into a 4A because those numbers were expanded so far this year.
I know a friend of mine is always frustrated that 2C incorporates programs your size all the way up to some 5A/6A feeders.
It would be nice of UIL to re-examine this. If someone submitted a proposal perhaps they would...?
