Miller High School's athletics programs were elevated to Class 5A during Thursday morning's UIL reclassification announcements.

They join CCISD's five other 5A schools in District 14-5A, along with Victoria East and Victoria West.

Bishop and Orange Grove also move up, from 3A to 4A. Bishop moves to Division II's 16-4A, playing against Rio Grande Valley schools Port Isabel,
Raymondville, Rio Grande City and Grulla; Orange Grove faces 15-4A's local competition West Oso, Ingleside, Robstown and Sinton.

Skidmore-Tynan falls to Class 2A where it faces a couple of high school football's traditional powerhouses in District 15's Refugio and Shiner, along with Bloomington, Kenedy and Ganado.

Flour Bluff and Gregory-Portland are among the notable realignments, pulled from district play against CCISD in Division I and moved into competition with Rio Grande Valley schools Brownsville Porter, Edcouch-Elsa, Mercedes and Pharr Valley View. With it's almost prescient name, the drive to Pharr and other Valley schools from Portland is more than two hours one way.
