The Mexia Blackcats will be playing in the new District 9-4A DII, Reg. III along with a few familiar faces and one new one.
The makeup of former District 7-4A DII, Reg. II, will somewhat remain intact overall as Fairfield, Lorena and Waco Connally are back as district opponents for the 2016-18 football seasons. Robinson (1-9, 1-4 in District 13-4A DI last season) will be in the new district and Salado (1-10, 1-3 in District 11-4A DII last fall) joins as well.
Rusk moves out and into District 8-4A DII, while Groesbeck drops down to Conference 3A DI.
The big question is will the “Battle of the River” game still be played?
