The 2010 Boys and Girls Soccer Division realignments proposals can be viewed by clicking the thread. These are not final, but this is what CIF is sending to all schools, who will then have a chance to review and/or submit their objections. But here’s the skinny for you local schools …

Girls Soccer: The Mission Valley remains in Division 7, with the Montview, home of Division 7 champ Sierra Vista, moving up to Division 6, with check this out, the Rio Hondo and Valle Vista League both dropping to Division 6 as well. The new Hacienda League, which includes Los Altos and Walnut, will move to Division 3 along with the Del Rey League, which includes Bishop Amat.

The Valle Vista League will remain in Division 5, and will be joined by the Mission Valley League, moving up a division after Mountain View’s back-to-back D-6 titles.
