TheAthleticsDepartment.com announces the addition of all-district, all-state and all-region teams for tennis and golf.

This announcement comes after the success of adding cross country honor teams in the fall. TheAthleticsDepartment.com has always displayed and archived the honor teams selected by coaches, the media and coaches association. It’s expanding its promotion of the success of Texas student-athletes by creating all-district, all-region and all-state teams for tennis and golf. These are two individual sports that don’t have coach-voted teams for all districts.

TheAthleticsDepartment.com teams will be noted with the “TAD” organization on TheAthleticsDepartment.com honors pages. TheAthleticsDepartment.com will display any coach-voted teams submitted in these sport as well as the TAD lists.

In golf, the top five individuals at the district tournament earn first team all-district honors; the next five are second team all-district; and the remaining golfers on a team advancing to the next round, but not finishing in the Top 10 are honorable mention. This same format is used for all-region and all-state.

In tennis, any player reaching the semifinals of the district, regional and state tournaments earned first-team honors. There is no second team or honorable mention for tennis.

In preparation for the 2014-16 UIL realignment announcement, TheAthleticsDepartment.com now has UIL football and basketball alignments dating back to 1980. And UIL enrollments dating to 1982.

The alignments, enrollments and travel queries are all available in TheAthleticsDepartment.com premium access. The information and corresponding reports were built with the media in mind. The media can easily do research on questions like most travel; least travel; what school has had the travel burden for the longest period of time in its coverage area. All the questions can be answered without hours of research.

Premium access has grids to find the answer as well as reports to have print-ready html and txt file.

The addition of more alignments and enrollments also brings more depth to our playoff history data. If a school has competed in multiple regions, you can see if the school won more playoff games or state titles in one region over another. Did the school do better, worse or no different when it was the smallest school in the district? Some questions are trivia. Some are relevant data for reporting a story or even requesting changes from the UIL.

However you use the information, TheAthleticsDepartment.com is building a powerful Texas high school athletics resource.
