New football district realignments released
By KRAIG ERWIN
COLDSPRING -- The University Interscholastic League released the 2014-2016 District realignments for football Monday. According to many, there will be a few changes that area fans are not going to be happy about. One of the big changes is that fans are going to be traveling further than expected to high school games. The second big change -- for the next two years local rival games my not be on the schedule for the 2014-2016 seasons. Starting off what has been known as District 22-3A is no longer in football. Cleveland has moved to Region 3, District 10, 4-A Division 1 along with Splendora, Huffman, Silsbee, Little Cypress Mauriceville, Bridge City and Jasper. In the 2013-2014 season Silsbee, Huffman, Cleveland, Jasper made the playoffs. Little Cypress also made the playoffs in what was District 20 4-A. The Coldspring Trojans are moving to Region 2, District 10, 4-A Division II along with Tarkington, Shepherd, Diboll, Huntington and Madisonville. Shepherd, Coldspring and Tarkington all three came out of District 22-3-A this past season and Coldspring was the only team to make the playoffs. Diboll made the playoffs last season with a 1-9 record and Madisonville also made the playoffs. With the football districts changing this season all other sports will be staying the same. The girls looking to play volleyball and cheerleaders are going to have to make a decision this year as it can cause a conflict between volleyball games and varsity football games being on the road where in the past there was no conflict. All the changes should make for some good football throughout the area when football season begins in seven months.
