GOLIAD – The Goliad Tigers should have an easier time making the football playoffs the next two years.

Goliad learned Monday it was placed in District 15-3A, Division I by the University Interscholastic League for the 2014-15 seasons. The district will have only five teams – Goliad, George West, Hallettsville, Mathis and San Antonio Brooks.

The Tigers competed in the seven-team District 15-2A, Division I the last two seasons. Goliad was moved to Class 3A due to the formation of a new Class 6A.

Goliad will compete in District 27-3A in basketball, baseball, softball, track and field, tennis and volleyball with Bloomington, Karnes City, Luling, Nixon-Smiley, Poth and Stockdale.

Can someone explain why the football District is different from the District for all other sports?

Goliad is caught in the middle of San Antonio and Corpus Christi. Football districts are placed in two divisions in Class 3A based on enrollment. The other sports just have one division per class. It's confusing and frustrating. Basically, the UIL wants to crown more football state champions and make more money, so it created two divisions in each classification. That doubles the number of playoff games and number of gate receipts. It makes it difficult for schools like Goliad to compete, because GHS will play Jourdanton in football on Friday night and then half the cheerleading squad has to be at a volleyball game in Palacios at noon the next day.
