All eyes on Mater Dei and CIF over athletically movitaved transfers; Sondheimer gives his take

The Orange County parochial school’s claim that Southern Section transfer rules discriminate against its powerhouse athletic program will probably cause eye rolling at other Southland high schools. Here’s hoping for a jury trial, where everything is laid out in the open.

    there are pros and cons on this sensitive of the pros is a kid has a chance to get a scholarship he wouldnt have a chance to get if he goes to say a school like SVHS,Ganesha, Gladstone, EMHS (SMALLER SCHOOLS). the other side is those schools loose out on a chance to be good for a couple of years because that talent is at Amat,COHS,SHHS,Damien, among others. I think its up to the parents and kid to do whats in their best interest. the point of high school is to have an opportunity to go to college, and if going to a “higher profile” school is the best way then let the kid go.

    Mater Dei will do anything to win in any sport.
    There is no crime in wining. The way Mater dei gets their their players is what is wrong. Mater Dei will go at any length to get someone to play for them, even if they must go out of Orange County! When young men from South Central enroll at a school that is not around the corner, someone is pulling strings! I just can not accept, that no one from Mater Dei did not contact someone from Landcaster or South Central
    or anywhere else to enroll at Mater Dei, When there is Loyola, Verbum Dei, Cathedral in Los Angeles; Serra. In the San Fernando Valley is Alemany, Chamanad.In the San Gabriel Valley, we have Cantwell, Bosco Tech,St Francis, Damien and Bishop Amat. In Orange County, why would someone not choose to attend Servite; which is next door to Santa Ana,or JSerra? What is going on CIF?
