A decision by the Southern Section's governing body to move Santa Ynez High to the Frontier League will keep Camarillo in the Marmonte League through the 1989-90 school year.
Marmonte and Camarillo officials had supported a recommendation that called for Camarillo to move to the Frontier and Santa Ynez to move from the Tri-Valley to the Los Padres, changing four odd-number team leagues into six-team leagues. But that recommendation was voted down Thursday, 5-3. The alternative recommendation moving Santa Ynez to the Frontier was approved by a 7-to-1 vote.
Santa Ynez's move will make the Tri-Valley and Frontier six-team leagues. The Marmonte remains a seven-team league, protracting scheduling problems during the football season.
"We especially have trouble the last five games of the season," Camarillo Principal Donald Bathgate said. "The goal is still to get the Marmonte into an even-number league."
