Joel Schaeffer will bid farewell to a memorable if short era in Reseda High football history in today's City Section 2-A Division championship game at East Los Angeles College.
Reseda (10-0), which plays Westchester (9-2) at 12:30 p.m., is attempting to win its second City title in a row, and Schaeffer knows his Regents probably are seeing the last of competition at this level for a while. Reseda likely will move up in class when the City releagues its 49 teams for the 1988-89 school year. City officials conducted their first releaguing meeting Dec. 7 and expect to conclude the process by mid-March.
City Director Hal Harkness said geography would be a major consideration in the releaguing formula. Consequently, the Pac-8 League, which includes Reseda, four other Valley teams, Westchester, University and Venice, will cease to exist.
"We'll probably go to 3-A or 4-A and go back to the traditional East Valley, Mid-Valley and West Valley leagues," Schaeffer said. "We'll be playing teams like Canoga Park, Cleveland, El Camino Real, Taft and Chatsworth. I'd feel comfortable in that kind of league."
