LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The UIL has released the cutoff numbers for the 2016-2018 school years and it shows Lufkin ISD will be moving up to 6A.

The move up comes after Lufkin had moved down to the new 5A for the past two years.

The UIL's cutoff numbers showed schools with enrollments of 2,150 and up would be moved to 6A. Lufkin High School had turned in an enrollment of 2,198.

"Our kids are going to compete wherever they put us," said Lufkin ISD Athletic Director Todd Quick. "It's nothing different than what we've been in."

Quick could not speculate on what their new district would look like.

"We were in Conroe last time so we know the way there," Quick said. "We're lucky to be out here in the middle of nowhere so they can put us wherever they want to."
