Leagues Realigned

August 30, 2017

Last week, California's North Coast Section's representatives voted to approve a realignment of leagues for the 2018-19 school year. According to The Windsor Times, the representatives unanimously approved three leagues, including one “Super League” that would combine the North Bay and Sonoma County leagues. The next day, the NCS alignment committee approved the proposal, and the NCS Board of Managers must also do so on October 3 before the proposal can go into effect.

“It was the first proposal to vote on and there were no other motions for any of the other 16 proposals, so it was a quick meeting,”Jeff Hardie, athletic director for Windsor High School, said. “Although not the best of plans for our NBL colleague Casa Grande, we stuck together and voted for this proposal and will work towards the next cycle in two years.”

The new alignment will form two divisions of six schools for each league, with membership based on the schools' teams' quality and winning rate. The divisions would differ for each sport, and be redone every other year.
