Miller two-sport athlete Jake Costantino signed with Lewis and Clark college in Portland, Ore. a couple weeks ago, according to a phone call from former Miller coach Jeff Strycula. Strycula said that Costantino will play both football and baseball at the college.
There weren’t many surprises at today’s Citrus Belt Area releaguing meeting this morning at Norte Vista High School, as Cajon moved from the San Andreas League to the Citrus Belt League while Fontana and Colton were placed in the Sunkist League, moving from the CBL and the SAL, respectively.
These moves were part of Proposal 8, which was drafted by Moreno Valley High School and beat out 15 other proposals. It did in interesting fashion, as it received 60 votes during the eighth round of voting, beating out four other proposals that had 41 votes each. Due to the Citrus Belt Area’s bylaws, all of the other proposals were eliminated, as any proposal in last or tied for last automatically gets the boot.
As far as the other leagues go, expect an appeal from Vista del Lago HS. The Ravens’ athletic director, Kevin Ferguson, was the only athletic director or principal to reject the proposal, as the Ravens were placed in an Inland Valley League that got tougher than the one they were asking for relief from, as former Big VIII schools Riverside North and Riverside Poly joined the league. Vista del Lago can appeal to the CIF-SS offices if it chooses.
