Principals are no different than politicians, they vote along party lines. That is why this process was more difficult than it should be. If the principals left the realignment in the hands of your favorite sportswriter, you would get rid of all the politics and it would like this, which makes sense from a competitive, geographical, financial, and common-sense standpoint. It’s very simple really, move Chino Hills to the Baseline. Glendora and Diamond Ranch go to the Sierra. This makes the Miramonte and Sierra a six-team league. Send Claremont to the Mt. Baldy, which like the Montview, would be a competitive eight-team league. You tell me, how does this not make the most sense?
