The high school releaguing process has begun for the Mt. SAC Area, which includes 42 high schools roughly located between the I-605 and I-15 freeways.
The changes wouldn’t go into effect until the fall of 2010, but it’s getting interesting already.
Apparently seven schools have asked for relief, which means they are asking for help because they are struggling in their current leagues.
I know of five of those schools: Chino, Claremont, Diamond Bar, Ganesha and Glendora. The question is whether relief will be granted or denied. And of course if relief is granted and those schools are moved to “lower leagues” there’s an impact on other leagues.
On the surface, here’s how I would rank those five schools in terms of how much they deserve relief: 1. Chino, 2. Claremont, 3. Ganesha, 4. Diamond Bar and 5. Glendora. Generally, members of the releaguing committee look at the last two to four years or so, in examining performance by schools in their current leagues.
It is difficult to give three schools from the same league (Chino, Diamond Bar and Glendora from the Sierra League) relief, so it will be interesting to see how that pans out. Stay tuned …
