Curiosity likely not enough to move Colony to Baseline League

Colony High School is admittedly curious about how successful it could be in the highly competitive Baseline League. Piquing that curiosity is the fact that Colony has been dominant in several sports during its reign in the Mt. Baldy League.

There will be a Foothill-Citrus Area releaguing meeting March 22 discussing the realignment that will take effect in the fall of 2014, but Colony athletic director Jaime Sandoval doesn’t envision his school going anywhere.

“Everybody’s curious,” Sandoval said. “But you look across the board at where you fit best. And for Colony, the best fit is (the Mt. Baldy League).”

Of course, there is one school from the Baseline League that has made it known it wants out. Alta Loma “hasn’t been competitive,” for the last five years in the Baseline League, according to its athletic director, Brett Proctor. The school has asked for relief and the seven-team Mt. Baldy League would be an ideal fit, according to none other than Colony’s Sandoval.

“I don’t know if anybody wants an eight-team league,” Sandoval said. “But it would be a good fit (for Alta Loma) to come down to the Mt. Baldy League. I think the Mt. Baldy League is going to pretty much stay the same.”

There has been very little dialogue thus far about potential realignment, but the process will begin to ramp up at the March 22 meeting.
